Lecithin can be found in a variety of foods including egg yolks, milk, meats, fish, and legumes. Since our intake of some of these foods has been reduced due to cholesterol and fat concerns, our bodies may be lacking this important nutrient. Lecithin is composed of a group of phosphorus containing fats or phospholipids, with one of the most important being Phosphatidyl Choline.
The body makes a brain chemical called acetylcholine from Phosphatidyl Choline. Acetylcholine is important for memory and other bodily functions. Acetylcholine activates muscles, and is a major neurotransmitter in a wide range of involuntary and unconscious body functions. Acetylcholine has an important role in the enhancement of sensory perceptions when we wake up and in sustaining attention. Acetylcholine has also been shown to promote REM sleep. Damage to the cholinergic (acetylcholine-producing) system in the brain has been shown to be plausibly associated with the memory deficits associated with Alzheimer's disease. Since phosphatidylcholine might increase acetylcholine, there is interest in using it for improving memory.
Every living cell contains phospholipids and the functioning of our nervous system can be compromised if we are inadequate in Lecithin's key ingredients. Deficiencies can be linked to a variety of neurological concerns, including memory issues. The heart muscle has one of the highest concentrations of Lecithin of any muscle, making Lecithin beneficial for those needing cardiovascular and liver support.*
