Royal Lecithin

Lecithin (phosphatidylcholine) is a fatty substance found in many foods and it is also manufactured in the body. Lecithin is a fine source of the B-vitamin, choline. These two nutrients may help the body to metabolise fat and cholesterol via the gall bladder and the liver.

Lecithin has a crucial role to play within the body; around 30% of brain weight is made up of it. Lecithin is converted into acetylcholine, a substance that transmits nerve impulses. It may therefore help with Alzheimer’s disease.

Researchers have recently become interested in the use of phosphadylcholine as a supportive treatment in ulcerative colitis.  It is postulated that there may be too little quantities of phosphatidylcholine within the mucus lining the colon in patients with this condition.  Supplementing with lecithin, it would seem, from a small study, that it produced a significant improvement in this debilitating condition.
