Lecithins consist of a mixture of different phospholipids, e.g. Phosphatidylcholine (PC), phosphatidylserine (PS), phosphatidylethanolamine (PE) and phosphatidylinositol (PI), all of which have different technological functionalities but also various health effects.
Isolation of phospholipid fractions in lecithin provides higher levels of phospholipids, universally recognized as a health enhancer. Phosphatidylcholine (PC)- is the most studied and accepted of the phospholipids in lecithin. Benefits of phosphatidylcholine include, improving the vitality of brain cells, improving cell membrane function, increasing attention and cognitive function overall, improving sleep quality. PC is recommended for cholesterol reduction in human body, prevention and cure of cardiovascular condition, boosting the immune system, and many more potential uses.
Different concentrations and different raw materials allow the product and application properties to be adapted specifically to the particular purpose. PC enriched Lecithins are gaining high interest in food, functional food, food supplements, and cosmetics applications.
Phospholipids are lipid-protein complexes that bind together to form a membrane that surrounds every living cell in the body, serving at their most basic level, to keep the cell’s contents in good conditions. Phospholipids are involved in almost all essential bio functions from neurotransmission to signal transduction to moisture management, to cell metabolism. PHOSPHOLIPIDS are involved in a mass volume of metabolic processes such as nerve function, blood clotting, cholesterol metabolism, fat absorption, and blood clotting. They are substances vital to the human body. All cells in the human body contain phospholipids, making them vital to human health. That is why, it is of outmost importance, to support our cells with supplemental Phospholipids, delivered to us in nourishing form.
