  1. I get a lot of questions from people about lecithin. Normally I just answer the mail, but because the topic was asked about 12 times in one week, I decided to post all questions about lecithin in this blog. Not only is this easier for me, but you also have the information available to you faster.

  1. Lecithin is a type of fat found in every cell of our body. Lecithin includes phosphorus, B vitamins and fatty acids. The entire human body needs lecithin. The brain, liver, and heart require lecithin in the greatest quantities.

  1. Phosphorus is one of the most important building blocks for our body. 1 percent of your whole body consists of phosphorus. The B vitamins are especially important for the metabolism, the production of enzymes and also for healthy blood. Your body needs the right fatty acids for good cholesterol and other functions in the body. Phosphorus is found in lecithin, among other things.

  1. Nowadays our current (Western) diet does not contain enough lecithin, which is why more and more people are using lecithin supplements.

  1. Which foods contain lecithin?

  1. Our way of life and the development of "fast food" makes it easier not to get enough lecithin. One reason for this is the fact that the handling of prepared foods is a process that breaks down the lecithin. Food that originally contains lecithin, will no longer have sufficient sizes when it has reached our plate.

  1. "Oops forgot", do you think that more and more when you come home with your groceries? Even then, nutrition with lecithin can be the solution because of the B vitamins and fatty acids that your brain also needs. So don't forget to buy that (unsalted) nut mix in the supermarket.

  1. 4. Lecithin promotes sleep. A better night's sleep is also good for your cholesterol.

  1. This is a win-win situation if you suffer from high cholesterol and poor sleep. A good night's sleep will make you eat a late snack less often.

  1. 5. It is beneficial during pregnancy.

  1. Especially when you are pregnant you should watch what you eat. Therefore try to stay away from processed food. As a result, you automatically eat more food with lecithin because no chemical process has been applied to unprocessed food, which causes the lecithin to disappear.

  1. 12. It helps prevent gallstones (1).

  1. Because lecithin affects cholesterol, it also helps to prevent gallstones. This is very important because gallstones can cause other serious complications such as pancreatitis.

  1. 13. It helps to firm your skin (2).

  1. The fatty acids in the lecithin support the flexibility of the skin and also the firmness. Very nice to fight wrinkles and "hanging" skin.

  1. And there are many more reasons why Lecithin is good for you!

  1. Lecithin enters your body in 2 ways.

  1. A lack of lecithin indirectly leads to an increase in your cholesterol. Due to a lack of lecithin, cholesterol can more easily settle in the veins because it is not optimally dissolved in the water in the blood. Lecithin therefore does not directly lower your "bad" cholesterol levels, but has an effect on the lipids (3). In the long term, the indirect effect does a lot of good.

So are you getting too little lecithin?

  1. Then start eating some of the above foods. There is always an easier way. To eat healthily we already have to think about so many things. Nowadays we can also get lecithin through dietary supplements. Not everyone loves this as much, but it is a way to still get enough lecithin if it is not already sufficiently present in your diet.

Where can lecithin be bought?

  1. Lecithin is for sale in better health food stores. Fortunately, there are also plenty of alternatives to purchase lecithin on the internet. Always make sure to buy your lecithin from a retailer you trust so that you know it was produced in a safe and controlled manner. When in doubt, you can always ask your local pharmacist for help.

Finally ..

  1. Lecithin is a substance that is full of fatty acids and phosphorus and it is very important for every cell in your body. Especially foods high in natural fats, such as nuts and eggs, are a good source of lecithin. By getting more lecithin from natural food you can ensure that you have less problems with high cholesterol and you also ensure weight loss. This is because lecithin promotes the conversion of fat into energy and because it can reduce your feeling of hunger. So you automatically burn more and have less appetite than if you eat too little lecithin.
