High Potency Super Lecithin 120 Capsules by Thompsons
Aids Movement of Fats
Lecithin generally refers to a mixture of phospholipids, including phosphatidylcholine, phosphatidylinositol and phosphatidylserine. Phospholipids are involved in a large number of metabolic processes in all tissues, blood cells and body fluids. These include fat absorption, cholesterol metabolism, regulation of serum lipid levels, fat transport, blood clotting, nerve function, lung function, prostaglandin biosynthesis, reproduction and visual processes.
Lecithin is the primary source of choline and inositol, important B vitamins able to emulsify or breakdown fat deposits in the body. Lecithin enables the break down of fats and cholesterol, keeping these substances in the bloodstream rather than accumulating on artery walls. Choline is currently being investigated as part of the nerve fluid acetylcholine, which is needed to bridge the gap between nerve cells, and between nerve and muscle cells, so that information can be efficiently transmitted. This enables the nervous system to function properly and is essential for optimum brain function.
Recent research has focused on phosphatidylserine as an important brain nutrient to counteract the age-related decline in cognitive abilities. Phosphatidylserine can help to improve memory and thinking processes and GM free. In Double-blind studies with adults suffering from measurable decline in mental functioning, improvements were shown in name-face recognition, maintaining concentration, learning and remembering information and recalling locations of misplaced items.
