What is Lecithin?
Biochemically, Lecithin is a lipid material belonging to the class known as phospholipids and is a component of all living cells. Lecithin was first discovered in 1850 by the French scientist, Maurice Gobley, who named it "lekithos", the Greek term for egg yolk. Until the advent of soybean processing, the egg remained the most common source of Lecithin.
Physiologically, Lecithin is an integral part of all organs and glands. The brain itself is comprised of 25% phospholipids. Vital organs such as the liver and reproductive tract as well as muscles also contain high concentrations of phospholipids. Phospholipids are also among the primary building blocks of all cellular membranes. Membrane functions include cellular transport of nutrients and wastes, internal cellular pressure regulation, and ion exchange.*
What does Lecithin do?
Lecithin contains compounds that are responsible for maintaining the health of cell membranes. With insufficient Lecithin, the cell wall may harden, thus limiting the flow of nutrients in or waste out of the cell. This situation contributes to premature aging of the cells. Lecithin's components are also involved in other crucial cell functions.* Lecithin is found in egg yolks, soybeans, nuts and organ meats.
Lecithin can also be found in Supplement Spot's Policosanol Plex .
