Lecithin

Lecithin, as a nutritional substance, mostly comes from Soy Beans. The Vitamin Companies we use certify that their sources are GMO Free products. Lecithin is a fatty substance called a Phospholipid containing Nitrogen, Phosphorus, digestible Vitamin B Complex and is the prime source for choline. Lecithin is found especially in the brain and nerve cells. Lecithin is sticky, yet slippery, and has multiple uses in the human body. 

What does Lecithin do?

  • Lecithin mobilizes calcium in the muscles, bones and connective tissues to reduce stiffness, especially after intense activity or inactivity, as sleeping, driving, using tools in cramped positions.
  • Lecithin coats the cell walls of the body keeping them supple and promotes and supports the Sodium/Potassium Pump in the production of muscle energy in the form of Adenosine Triphosphate (ATP).
  • The nervous system requires Lecithin in order to produce Acetyl choline, which allows nerves to transfer mental impulses across the synapses between nerve fibers. This may well be one of the reasons memory is improved with Lecithin. Combining the free fatty acid DHL and Lecithin, promotes brain development through pregnancies.
  • Lecithin bathes the nerves to protect the myelin sheathes. (There are demyelinization types of diseases that break down the sheath protecting the nerves. Multiple Sclerosis is one of them.) Since Lecithin is so important the liver produces Lecithin, if your diet has the B vitamins, Nitrogen and Phosphorus needed to produce it.
  • The kidneys, vocal cords and heart valves need Lecithin to protect the filters, prevent irritation and help in repair.
  • Daily intake of Lecithin for adults is recommended at about 500 mg to 1000mg. Many of my sources utilize a gelatin perle of 1200 mg.

Side note: Lecithin dissolves cholesterol and fats to useable sized droplets. Fats and cholesterol are very important to the body.

Some uses of Lecithin, Cholesterol and fats are:

  • production of many of our hormones
  • decongesting of the liver and gallbladder
  • preventing the clogging of arteries and veins by undissolved cholesterol.
  • saponification (digestion) of heavy fats in the small intestines, cholesterol is a part of the bile salts released from the liver to the gallbladder, into the small intestines
  • Cholesterol is so important that your liver will produce it if you don’t have enough

Fort Wayne was the home of Central Soya, a large producer of Lecithin. Bunge, another agriculture company, purchased Central Soya.Vitamin Companies purchase this product to produce the nutritional capsules and granules Chiropractors in Fort Wayne recommend to their patients.
