Ultra Fine Premium Lecithin
The highest quality de-oiled lecithin available:
Our pure lecithin contains: phosphatidylcholine, phosphatidylethanolamine, phosphatidylserine, and phosphatidylinositol; plus omega 3 and omega 6 essential fatty acids (EFAs).
Phosphatidyl choline is a brain and nerve nutrient. It acts to protect the insulating and protective sheaths that surround the brain, spine, and thousands of miles of nerves.
Phosphatidyl choline helps reduce high cholesterol levels by enhancing the metabolism of cholesterol in the digestive system and aiding its transport through the circulatory system. It acts as an emulsifier to break down the fats and cholesterol into tiny particles and holds them in suspension, preventing them from sticking to blood platelets or arterial walls.
All the phosphatides are important in lecithin. The phosphatides each perform different functions in the body.
In addition to the phosphatides, our lecithin is rich in the essential fatty acids, including linoleic (omega 6) and linolenic (omega 3). Eating both linoleic and linolenic fatty acids allows the body to make all the essential fats it needs. Linoleic and linolenic acids, combined, constitute the Essential Fatty Acids (EFAs). They are the precursors (parents) of all the essential fats.
Pure lecithin is also responsible for maintaining the surface tension of the cell membranes. It therefore controls what goes in and out of each cell, allowing nutrients in, or wastes out. Without enough lecithin, the cell wall hardens, thus not allowing enough nutrients in or wastes out. This condition contributes to premature aging of the cells. The surface tension of the cell, maintained by lecithin is also responsible for transmitting nerve impulses and messages through or from the cell.
It is important to note that what is commercially called lecithin is actually only about 1/3 phospholipds.
Each serving (1 tbsp.) contains:
Sprinkle lecithin on salads, mix with your favorite drink, add to your nut butter, butter, spreads or sauces. Since lecithin acts as an emulsifier, it will make whatever you mix it with smoother and creamier.
