Composed of a mixture of phospholipids, phosphoric acid, the two B group vitamins choline and inositol and the amino acid methionine, Lecithin is a body fat found in all body cells but most abundantly in the liver and brain. In fact 73% of total liver fat is lecithin and 30 % of the dry weight of the brain is lecithin. Brain function can be improved as research has found that lecithin improves the memory.
Lecithin aids the transport of fats around the body and helps disperse unhealthy deposits of fat and cholesterol. Along with cholesterol, lecithin is essential to the production of bile. The liver produces lecithin continuously, as it does cholesterol. Due to its emulsifying action lecithin can help keep cholesterol soluble in bile, thus preventing the formation of gallstones.
