Properties of soy lecithin

Soy Lecithin is a natural phospholipid complex isolated from soybean (Soja hispida), legume family of the Papilionaceae.

The soy natural phospholipids are chemically defined as diesters of phosphoric acid esterified with acylglycerol, choline, ethanolamine or inositol. Lecithin phospholipids are normally distruibuidos naturally throughout the human body being able to find in the liver, blood, bile, central nervous tissue, neurons, lungs, etc.. And in the membranes of all body cells as elements basic structural.

Role of phospholipids

Due to that involved in a number of important metabolic processes such as absorption of fat, cholesterol metabolism, regulation of serum lipid content, lipid transport, blood clotting, liver metabolism, visual perception, neurotransmitter function, biosynthesis of prostaglandins and sexual reproduction.

Action and indications of soy lecithin

Clinically, it has established that a high value of LDL (low density lipoprotein) is a high risk factor for heart disease, on the contrary a high rate of HDL (high density lipoprotein) lowers the risk of coronary heart disease.

It also has been experiencing in hospital food adjuvant action of soy lecithin, which translates into a decrease of LDL lipoproteins and a simultaneous increase in HDL.

In other disorders as atherosclerotic disease, the effect of lecithin emulsifier allows the hydrolysis of fatty esters and removal of shells and even prevent its onset.

In natural processes or premature aging is a reduction of cholinergic neurotransmission in the brain, manifested by memory loss, tremors, nervousness, and so on. These manifestations can be prevented or compensated by the contribution of phosphatidylcholine contained in soy lecithin, which exerts a regulatory action and regenerating levels of acetylcholine directly responsible for these disorders.

In the same neurological aspect soy lecithin is revealed as a dietary supplement of choice for children and students, requiring an improvement in intellectual performance. For athletes is a regenerative food after intense physical activity.

Finally it is interesting that praises massive and continuing emotional and chemical aggressions (pollution, drug treatments, etc..) Responsible for the state of stress, accelerate metabolic processes, mainly affecting the liver and nervous system. The dietary contribution of natural phospholipids of soybean lecithin produced a repair in situ of the affected organs.


The contribution of lecithin, as demonstrated in experiments in hospitals, it produces a clear efficacy in the prevention or treatment.
1) Hypercholesterolemia

2) Arteriosclerosis

3) Coronary Heart Diseases

4) Decreased memory

5) Premature aging

6) Stress

7) period of greatest intellectual and physical effort.
