Features

All cells throughout the human body are enveloped by membrane composed chiefly of essential fatty acids in the form of compounds known as "phospholipids." The major phospholipid of the human body is phosphatidylcholine. Commercially available phosphatidylcholine preparations are derived from soy lecithin. These preparations are used in the treatment of Alzheimer's disease, bipolar depression, elevated cholesterol levels, and liver disorders. The beneficial effects are likely due primarily to the essential fatty acid components of phosphatidylcholine and lecithin preparations.
 
Lecithin provides a good source of choline, helpful to the nervous system and liver. Lecithin also aids in the proper digestion and absorption of essential fats and fat-soluble vitamins. Add Unbleached Lecithin to your routine to improve liver function, aid the digestion of fat, help protect arteries from cholesterol buildup and prevent the formation of kidney stones and gallstones.
