Facts about Lecithin

Lecithin is a natural substance derived from the soybean. As a supplement to any diet it has amazing benefits. For those with high cholesterol it is one of the best supplements available to lower cholesterol.

Lecithin is actually a phosphorus lipid. Each cell in the body has protective membranes made of phosphorus lipids, including the nerve cells throughout the body and brain. Lecithin is useful in moving cholesterol out of the body in water and maintaining a healthy liver in general. Other benefits in addition to lowering cholesterol include making fat-soluble vitamins more easily absorbable in the body.

It is choline found in lecithin that does the job of attracting the LDL or bad cholesterol in the 
blood and whisking it away in a manner similar to HDL — that good cholesterol.
