Lecithin is the body’s substance produced by our liver. It is one of the basic building blocks of cell membranes1 of all living organisms. Among other elements, it contains linoleic acid, which helps maintain normal blood cholesterol levels. Lecithin is found in high concentrations in essential tissues, such as human brain tissue, liver, heart, muscle or nerve fibers.
Lecithin acts in the processing of fats. It converts into a water-soluble form and thus allows excretion from the body. It effectively lowers the level of harmful LDL cholesterol and raises HDL cholesterol level, beneficial to our body. It protects the heart and blood vessels from heart attack and atherosclerosis2. By lowering the cholesterol level in the blood vessels, blood flow to the brain is improved and the functions of the nervous system are strengthened. The ability to concentrate and think increases, learning processes become more efficient and mental energy and sharp mind persists.
“The primary function of lecithin is to help cells burn fat. Therefore, the lack of nutrients that promote lecithin production causes under-utilization of fats, leading to coronary heart disease3, high blood pressure and obesity. “
(Adelle Davis, What you miss to be fit, Eco – konsult, 2013) cell membrane: a flexible thin, semi-permeable layer separating cells. Allows releasing what the cell needs.  atherosclerosis: a disease of the arteries where fat and other plaques, including cholesterol, are deposited on their inner walls, causing insufficient blood flow and thus insufficient blood and oxygen supply to the organ in question. This disease is also called hardening of the arteries.  coronary heart disease: diseases of the blood vessels that supply the heart muscle.
