Lecithin: Fabulous Fat
WASTE MANAGEMENT (aka recycling)
Lowering of cholesterol is the function for which lecithin has become famous. Able to emulsify (break up) fats in the bloodstream, lecithin keeps
these lipids soluble and capable of passing through the cell walls to be
utilized for energy. By dissolving fats and helping them be absorbed for use
by the body, lecithin helps reduce the cholesterol level in the blood, a major
risk indicator for heart attack and heart disease. Low blood levels of lecithin
correlate with high cholesterol levels, as floating fat molecules clump, then
stick onto the wall of your arteries and tunnel between the muscle layers of
the blood vessels. Voila! you've got atherosclerosis.
