Poor nutrition, poor ecology, frequent stress, emotional overload and diseases deplete a person's energy resources. These factors cause a shortage of useful substances necessary for the proper functioning of internal organs and systems. One of them is lecithin, which is practically not synthesized in the body, but comes exclusively from food. The lack of a nutrient leads to significant health problems, which was due to its industrial production as a dietary supplement.
BioTela produces lecithin based on sunflower seeds of German production. Powder is the most optimal dosage form for adults. The dietary supplement is taken in dry form several times a day during meals. The powder can also be sprinkled on any non-hot dish or drink-salad, juice, dairy products.
Lecithin is a complex of phospholipids consisting of unsaturated and saturated fatty acids, phosphoric acid, glycerin and choline. No cell of the body can do without these compounds, which are necessary for differentiation and growth processes. Sunflower of German production, on the basis of which the Biotela dietary supplement is made, is considered the best today – the level of phospholipids in it reaches 96%, while Russian producers manage to achieve only 80%
first of all, the nervous system suffers from insufficient intake of lecithin in the body. At the same time, there is increased irritability, memory worsens, concentration of attention decreases, there is a depressed mood up to the development of depression.
In the future, the work of the digestive organs is disrupted – there is flatulence, intestinal disorder, intolerance to fatty foods, abdominal pain. Other symptoms may also be present – renal and hepatic colic, an increase in blood pressure.
the effect of lecithin on the body is so significant and diverse that its additional intake is recommended for almost everyone – men and women of different ages, children. It is especially important to provide additional intake of phospholipids in the following cases:
Taking a dietary supplement is possible not only for the purpose of prevention, but also as an auxiliary tool in the treatment of the following diseases or conditions:
More useful properties of lecithin will be revealed when taken together with pantothenic acid. The use of increased doses of the drug, for example, in the treatment of diseases, requires the addition of additional sources of calcium and ascorbic acid to the diet.
An absolute contraindication is allergy and intolerance to the supplement. Soy lecithin is a substance that can cause an undesirable reaction if you are allergic to soy. Such a dietary supplement can also cause harm in the case of improper cultivation of the plant culture, using genetic engineering, as well as due to the high content of phytoestrogens in the product. Intolerance to sunflower lecithin is several times less common.
It is forbidden to take drugs with lecithin with an exacerbation of cholecystitis or pancreatitis. Pregnant and breast-feeding women are advised to consult a doctor before taking a dietary supplement.
Lecithin is rightfully considered the" building material " of cells. It consists of about half of the liver tissue and up to a third of the insulating protective tissues surrounding the neurons of the brain and spinal cord, as well as a significant part of the heart muscle. The element is also involved in many biological processes, which is why it is irreplaceable for the body.
Lecithin promotes uniform dissolution in the blood and transport to the cells of the organs of vitamins A, D, E, K, amino acids, lipids, drugs. In addition, it removes excess fat deposits from the body, contributing to weight loss.
Due to its transport function and composition, the phospholipid complex promotes the cleavage and further elimination of "harmful" cholesterol – low-density lipoproteins from the body, which prevents the formation of atherosclerotic plaques on the walls of blood vessels.
By participating in the transport of various substances with the blood flow, lecithin helps to remove harmful compounds from the body. It also helps the work and recovery of the liver – the main organ responsible for neutralizing toxins.
Both female and male sex hormones are synthesized from cholesterol, but for this the latter must be in an easily soluble form. Its homogeneity is promoted by lecithin, thereby prolonging the reproductive age of a person.
Lecithin is a structural component of myelin-an insulator and defender of nerve fibers. Without it, conducting nerve impulses will become impossible. In addition, vitamin B4, formed during the cleavage of the phospholipid complex, is necessary for the synthesis of acetylcholine, the main neurotransmitter responsible for intellectual abilities, memory and concentration.
Liver cells especially need lecithin, as a building material for repairing damaged tissues.In order to prevent diseases of the organ, a pure substance is used as an additive to food, and in the treatment of serious pathologies, medicines based on it are prescribed – hepatoprotectors.Also, the phospholipid complex plays a role in the emulsification of bile, maintaining its normal consistency. Sufficient intake of the substance into the body serves as a prevention of cholelithiasis and contributes to the dissolution of existing solid deposits on the walls of the gallbladder and ducts.
Lecithin phospholipids are involved in the synthesis of L-carnitine, a valuable amino acid responsible for providing muscle tissue with energy. It is necessary not only for the tone of the striated muscles during physical exertion, but also in the work of the heart. Thus, lecithin reduces the risk of heart attack and rhythm disturbances of this organ.
Lecithin is a powerful antioxidant that prevents the formation of highly toxic free radicals in the body. It not only helps to preserve youth, but also prevents cancer cell degeneration.
