MeridLife Condensed Soy Lecithin Softgels contain many beneficial nutrients that contribute to overall well-being. Phospholipids are made up of fatty acids that are components of the cell membrane. With age, phospholipid levels in the brain decline and soy lecithin can positively contribute to maintaining mental function.
Another well-known benefit of lecithin is its ability to lower cholesterol. Researchers have discovered that soybean lecithin can contribute to raising HDL (good) cholesterol and lowering LDL (bad) cholesterol in blood profiles.
Soy lecithin is also a source of linoleic acid, which is a polyunsaturated omega-6 fatty acid that can contribute to heart health with fat burning and emulsifying abilities. For this reason, it has become an incredibly popular supplement and weight loss aid. It is best known for its function of burning fat and keeping the liver in excellent condition to enhance metabolism.
Benefits of Lecithin:
- Lowers cholesterol levels: Lecithin works as an emulsifier, meaning it suspends blood fats and oils and keeps them from mixing with other substances and supplements and helps treat high cholesterol.
- Better immune function: By increasing vascular and metabolic health, this compound helps to protect the body against unnecessary inflammation, as well as defending against infections.
- Improved digestion: Extra lecithin is often used as an additive or emulsifier in foods, and it does help to improve digestive function, including the absorption of nutrients by the small intestines.
- Reduced risk of cardiovascular disease: Lecithin is known to improve cholesterol levels, and thus reducing the amount of plaque buildup in the arteries and blood vessels, thus lowering the risk of atherosclerosis, heart attack, and stroke.
