Sunflower lecithin contains phosphatidylcholine, the most abundant phospholipid in the cell membrane, where it plays a key role in cellular communication and synaptic transmission. In addition, sunflower lecithin naturally contains phosphatidylinositol, phosphatidyl ethanolamine, and essential fatty acids. The introduction of lecithin in the diet supports the emulsification of fats, contributing to their dissolution in water; and since it is a phospholipid containing choline, the body easily absorbs it.
When the body of an adult, and especially a child, the amount of lecithin is normal, the general condition of the cardiovascular system improves, the maximum absorption of vitamins A, K, E, and D occurs, the formation of hemoglobin and red blood cells is stimulated, as well as the stimulation of bile secretion, the body’s resistance to toxic substances increases.
Lecithin is found in all tissues and in almost all animal and plant fluids. Natural food source of lecithin – meat of animals, birds and fish.
Lecithin was discovered by the French scientist Maurice Gobley in 1850, having found it in the egg yolk. The egg yolk was immediately used as a source of lecithin.
What is lecithin?
The term “lecithin” has two meanings, semantically related to each other, but still having a fundamental difference. The biochemical term “lecithin” is used as a synonym for phosphatidylcholine, one of the main molecules of cell membranes. The commercial term “lecithin” means a natural mixture of various fats (including glycolipids, triglycerides, sterols, and sphingolipids) and some fatty acids, carbohydrates, and vitamins.
Lecithin is essential for any body. This is the main substance, due to which the intercellular space (intercellular matrix) is formed, the nervous system functions correctly, and brain cells work normally. Lecithin is one of the main materials of the liver. It is also required by the body as a building material for the repair of damaged cells. Lecithin is the primary vehicle for delivering nutrients, vitamins, and drugs to cells. This substance is a powerful antioxidant that prevents the formation of free radicals. Lack of lecithin in the body can lead to a decrease in the effect of drugs, dementia, Parkinson’s disease, multiple sclerosis and other diseases of the nervous system.
It is quite difficult to overestimate the importance of lecithin, because it makes up 30% of the mass of the brain, 17% of the peripheral nervous system, being the central nutrient for nerve endings. If the body of an adult is not enough phospholipids, this will lead to a deterioration in attention and memory, fatigue, fatigue, and nervous irritability.
Lecithin is essential for the smooth functioning of the liver: its task is to normalize the consistency of bile in the body, to assist in the transport of fats from the liver cells.
Lecithin is the basis for proper fat metabolism. Thanks to it, oxidative processes in living cells are accelerated. When the body of an adult, and especially a child, the amount of lecithin is normal, the general condition of the cardiovascular system improves, the maximum absorption of vitamins A, K, E, and D occurs, the formation of hemoglobin and red blood cells is stimulated, as well as the stimulation of bile secretion, the body’s resistance to toxic substances increases.
If you are deficient in lecithin, your body cannot process vitamins A, D, E, and K. When you add the right amount of lecithin to your diet, your digestion and use of these vitamins improves by 100% or more, depending on the current lecithin deficiency in your diet.
Our body consists of 600 trillion cells of various purposes, and all of them are consumers of lecithin.
Lecithin is especially necessary for the elderly, because over the years the content of lecithin in the body decreases. The greatest danger is the lack of lecithin in the diet of young children. Lecithin, obtained by a child in the first years of life, is essential for its development.
If You are constantly engaged in physical exercises to improve muscle tone, the content of lecithin in the muscles increases. This increase in the lecithin content in the muscles partially contributes to the increase in their endurance.
There is very little of its own lecithin in the human body. The human body, on average, contains about 300g of its own lecithin.
