Lecithin (from the Greek. Lekithos — yolk) is a phospholipid, which consists of: choline and phosphodiglyceride. All cells of the body need lecithin, as it is a building material for the renewal of cell membranes. Lecithin is important as a transporter for the movement of fat-soluble substances in the body. Lecithin is present in the composition of bile, provides a normal metabolism of fats, promotes the absorption of fat-soluble vitamins A, D, E and K. Lecithin improves the functioning of the brain, cardiovascular system, liver.
The content of lecithin in the composition of the brain is the highest and amounts to 30%, the nervous system - 17%, liver - 16%, heart - 10%. It is necessary for the production of acetylcholine, which provides the function of the nervous system. Insufficient intake of lecithin leads to irritability, fatigue, nervous exhaustion, can cause dementia, Parkinson's disease, multiple sclerosis and other diseases.
Lecithin has a wide range of effects on the physiological functions of the body: restores the structure of the liver and lungs, regulates the production of bile, prevents the development of cirrhosis with alcohol abuse, is effective in preventing atherosclerosis, removes excess cholesterol from tissues and blood vessels, stabilizes the level of triglycerides in the blood, prevents excess weight body, is actively involved in the transmission of nerve impulses (neurotransmission), is necessary in the diet of pregnant and lactating women, as it participates in the formation and normal development of the brain and nervous system of the child, improves memory and attention in children. Lecithin is one of the lipotropic factors that prevent fatty infiltration of the liver. Lecithin and choline are required for the production of hormones and for the normal metabolism of fats and cholesterol. Lecithin is an antioxidant that prevents the formation of highly toxic free radicals in the body. With a deficit of lecithin reduces the effectiveness of the action of drugs.
Reception of lecithin during pregnancy contributes to a better formation of the brain and nervous tissue of the fetus, and also significantly facilitates the course of labor. The introduction of lecithin in the diet of children has a beneficial effect on their physical and mental development, improves attention and memory, and for various disorders (speech delay, increased excitability, fatigue, etc.), lecithin is recommended as an important component of treatment.
Athletes receiving lecithin will contribute to increased endurance and better recovery after heavy physical exertion. Lecithin should be taken in those cases when high concentration of attention and speed of thought processes are necessary (for example, for schoolchildren and students). And, without a doubt, lecithin will be very useful for older people for the prevention of atherosclerosis, heart attacks, gallstone disease and other age-related diseases.
