Lecithin activates reproductive function, improves processes of food and a detoxication, recovers the damaged cells of skin and stimulates processes of formation of new, protects skin from influence of free radicals, contributes to normalization of weight, stimulates production of bile and prevents formation of bilious concrements, interferes with development of cirrhosis at abuse of alcoholic drinks, stimulates processes of digestion of vitamins A, E, K and D in a digestive tract.

Useful properties of substance do it irreplaceable and for pregnant women. It is connected with the fact that it takes part in forming and normal development of a nervous system of a fruit, exerts beneficial influence on development of mental capacities of the child in the future.

Lecithin — what is it?

Wikipedia answers the question "what is lecithin?" that letsitina are a generalizing concept which can be used for definition of by-products of refining vegetable oils by a hydration method.

The chemical formula of substance looks as follows:

lecitin_formula

In a molecule of phosphatidylsincaline phosphoric acid, glycerin, higher fatty acids and vitaminopodobny substance sincaline which is raw materials for synthesis of neuromediators (transmitters of nervous impulses) are connected.

The human body feels need for polyunsaturated fatty acids and phospholipids from the moment of the beginning of forming of a germ and in the subsequent throughout all life.

Fosfatidilkholin treats group of difficult lipids and is one of components of membranes of living cells. In particular the cells creating nervous tissue are rich with it.

Universality of drugs of lecithin is caused by the fact that phosphatidylsincalines are a basis of all cellular covers in a human body: the isolating and protective fabrics which surrounded nerve fibrils, a head and spinal cord consist of them approximately for 30%, and liver cells — for 65%.

The need of an organism for phosphatidylsincalines is caused as well by the fact that the last are used as the construction material necessary for recovery of the damaged cells. Besides, they are the main vehicle which is carrying out delivery in cells of vitamins, nutrients and drugs.

At deficit of these substances efficiency of influence of one and all medicines significantly decreases.

At disturbance in an organism of a hormonal background endogenous progesterone, estrogen and testosterone are formed of cholesterol and only under a condition if cholesterol is in an assimilable and transport state. Such state to it is given by inositol and sincaline.

Besides substance represents an effective form of organic phosphorus — a microelement which is extremely important for health of teeth.

Accepting drugs of lecithin it is not necessary to exceed the dose recommended by the instruction. With care means is applied at patients with cholelithiasis and at pancreatitis in an aggravation stage.

In need of prolonged use of dietary supplement it is recommended to enter the products containing a large amount of vitamin C and calcium into a diet or to accept in addition drugs of ascorbic acid and calcium for the purpose of neutralization of harmful products of a metabolism of lecithin.

Advantage and harm of lecithin

It is impossible to revaluate advantage of substance. Its deficit first of all affects a condition of a nervous system. The main symptoms of insufficient content of lecithin in an organism are dysmnesias, sleeplessness, changeability of mood, decrease in concentration of attention.

Besides, deficit of substance in a diet is followed by digestive disturbances which are shown in the form of rejection of greasy food, abdominal distention, frequent ponos, renal failures and/or a liver, by increase of arterial and intracranial pressure, progressing of heart diseases, vessels, joints, bodies of the alimentary system, weight reduction, bad development of the speech in children, instability of a mental state.

What is soy lecithin? Emulsifier lecithin — advantage and harm

Soy lecithin — what is it? This substance which is received from production wastes of oil and products from soy. In the food industry it is applied in the form of E322 additive.

Emulsifier soy lecithin is necessary by production of margarine, products from milk, chocolate, bakery products. E322 is also quite often used as antioxidant. In the description of a product the additive can be specified under the name emulsifier lecithin.

Today many articles about harm and advantage of soy lecithin are written. Useful properties of substance are described above.

As for a question of harm of soy lecithin, here all specialists agree in opinion that if to use it in reasonable quantities, substance does not do to an organism any harm.

However, used in high doses, it can become the reason of allergic reactions (in particular at the persons having predisposition to them).

According to most of consumers, other danger is covered that substance can be received from genetically modified raw materials. In spite of the fact that there are no official data on danger of use of GM-products, today their quantity is strictly regulated.

E476 additive — advantage or harm?

One more form of lecithin is a polyglycerol which is also known under the name the E476 stabilizer.

Polyglycerol is received in the chemical way. Properties of this substance allow to apply it as the stabilizing agent to preservation of required level of viscosity and improvement of a consistence of separate food stuffs.

In this regard the additive is quite often used at production of chocolate, mayonnaise and ketchups, margarine, ready gravies and the thin soups which are let out in vacuum packaging.

In comparison with E476 lecithin manages much cheaper, at the same time similar replacement does not affect product tastes.

There are no direct proofs of harm of E476 for an organism. The conducted researches did not reveal toxicity of this substance. Their results also allowed to establish that the additive is not allergen and does not provoke emergence of irritation of integuments (including at direct contact with them).

Nevertheless, it is necessary to consider that from the moment of statement of production of polyglycerol on a flow, for its production GM-plants quite often began to use. On a question, than it is fraught for an organism, scientists meanwhile find it difficult to give the answer.

According to some data, abuse of products which contain E476 additive can become the reason of increase in the sizes of a liver and kidneys, and also disturbances of a course of exchange processes in an organism. In this regard it is worth being especially careful at their inclusion in a food allowance of people with stomach diseases and small children.
