Lecithin: What Is It and How Does Sunflower Lecithin Help Your Body Stay Healthy

Mr Ros Sunflower Lecithin Powder

Yesterday we talked about making your very own Lecithin Vitamin C. Today, we talk about what Lecithin actually is and how it benefits your body.

Lecithin… this is the term that defines a variety of brown or yellowish fatty substances that are naturally found in plants and animals. In the past, the only way to attain lecithin was through isolating egg yolk.

However, today, it’s a popular supplement as it helps the body in various ways – improvement in cholesterol levels, circulatory system and nervous system.

The two most popular kinds of lecithin are sunflower and soy, but they do differ from one another.

A Look At Lecithin and Why It’s So Important In The Body

Lecithin is extremely important to all cells in the body. It helps keep the cell membranes from hardening up – keeping them healthy. Simply put, a healthy cell means a healthy body.

Most of the major organs in the body – heart, kidneys and liver – produce lecithin and other similar phospholipids. However, if you want to increase your levels of lecithin, you’ll need to take a supplement.

Lecithin’s benefit extended to liver repair, from years of damage due to alcohol abuse. It also appears to help with bettering one’s memory and learning faculties.

8 Benefits Sunflower Lecithin Has On The Body

Improvement In Cholesterol Levels and Heart Health

Lecithin is extremely beneficial to your heart, inhibiting the development and reversing the damage of coronary disease. It’s a fat emulsifier the body uses to eliminate the excess fat built up in the bloodstream.

The extra fat consists of triglycerides and cholesterol that help with controlling and decreasing your cholesterol levels. How so? It’s because of the copious amounts of linoleic acid in the sunflower lecithin. Olive oil is the only other product that can mimic the linoleic acid levels. Soy lecithin has a minute amount.

A supplement of sunflower lecithin can improve the circulation of blood to inhibit blood clots from forming.

Improvement In Brain Health

If you want to improve your cognitive and neurological health, adding sunflower lecithin is one way to do this. Why? It’s loaded with essential phospholipids with nearly unpronounceable chemical names.
The body uses phosphatidylethanolamine, phosphatidylinositol and phosphatidylcholine to mend, support and generate brain and nerve cells. Various reports show that sunflower lecithin helps in better cognitive functions such as focus, memory and studying. When you can recall things – have a good memory – it means your brain is strong. There’s a possibility that sunflower lecithin can stave off various brain disorder such as:

• Alzheimer’s disease
• Parkinson’s disease
• Dementia

Improvement In Liver Health

Studies have shown that phospholipids play a role in your liver’s health. The liver is susceptible to excessive fats, which build up within the organ rather than be excreted from the body. Doctors are finding more and more people suffering from non-alcoholic fatty liver disease, which can cause various conditions like liver cancer, cirrhosis and type 2 diabetes.

However, sunflower lecithin has the power to stop the buildup of these fats, so the liver stays in working order.

Offers Powerful Antioxidants

You know how important antioxidants are to the human body. Well, by adding sunflower lecithin to your diet, you’ll get a powerful dose of antioxidants by way of phosphatidylcholine. Antioxidants are important to stop the cellular damage that occurs from oxidative stress. When your cells are damaged, it can lead to cancer, heart disease and premature aging… both externally and internally.

Lowers Your Blood Pressure

As previously noted, sunflower lecithin contains linoleic acid, which can bring excess fats down such as triglycerides and cholesterol. When the body has an excessive amount of this, they attach themselves to the walls, resulting in arteriosclerosis or a thickening of the arteries. This condition leads to a higher blood pressure and, if not treated, a stroke or heart attack.

More Effective Nervous System

Your nervous system can work more efficiently because of the plethora of fatty acids, which increase nerve tissue strength and better the neurotransmitter activity. Keep in mind that your nerve fibers are a complicated network of sheaths that enable the nerve impulses to travel from location to location. If there’s a disruption in that system, your nervous system becomes affected. However, sunflower lecithin can ensure healthier nerve functions.

Aids In Wound Healing

Sunflower lecithin because of the fatty acids it contains like linoleic acid rapidly releases inflammatory transmitters to the injured parts of your body. For a more effective and quicker treatment, you can place sunflower lecithin right on minor wounds.

Arthritis Relief

Are you an arthritis sufferer? Do you suffer from some type of joint pain? If so, adding sunflower lecithin to your diet can benefit your joints, giving them the lubrication they need to relieve the aching.

In fact, a lecithin deficiency can result in stiffened joints and lead to rheumatism. By using a lecithin supplement, you can keep joint disease at bay and ease your already-existing symptoms.

Sunflower Lecithin Contains No Estrogen

Sunflower lecithin, unlike soy lecithin, has no estrogen in it. Phytoestrogen causes an overabundance of estrogen to be produced, and this can cause a multitude of metabolic problems including but not limited to:

• Weight gain
• Early menopause
• Sexual dysfunction
• Breast growth
• Autoimmune problems with the thyroid and adrenal glands

How To Safely Use Lecithin

In order to benefit from sunflower lecithin, men should take at least 600mg a day and women should take at least 500mg a day. It’s not thought that consuming more than this amount could be harmful and may actually benefit the body and mind in the short and long-term. To get the most benefits from using sunflower lecithin, males and female can take 1,200mg a day. There are a plethora of possible benefits to adding sunflower lecithin to your diet and even making your very own Sunflower Lecithin Vitamin C. Why don’t you benefit from them today?

6 Reasons Your Dog Needs Sunflower Lecithin

Mr Ros Sunflower Deoiled Lecithin Powder

Sunflower lecithin offers us humans a plethora of benefits for the body, like improved healing and physical performance, better sleep, improvement of memory and cardiovascular function. But did you know that it also offers your pet – be it your cat or dog – health benefits?

But first, let’s talk about what lecithin is

Lecithin is a term given to describe a variety of yellowish or brown fatty substances that naturally occur in a variety of animals and plants. It was originally isolated from egg yolk. These days, lecithin is a popular supplement, especially with regard to improving cholesterol levels and improving the functions of the nervous and circulatory systems.

Lecithin is available in two variations: soy and sunflower. Both are very popular formulations, but they differ slightly from one another.

Sunflower lecithin is the more expensive option due to the differences in production costs and yield. But sunflower lecithin offers many advantages over soy lecithin:

• Sunflower lecithin is extracted without the need for potentially damaging chemical solvents such as acetone and hexane.
• Sunflower lecithin is also processed through a cold press system like the one used to derive olive oil and similar products.
• Sunflower lecithin is the only lecithin which is obtainable both chemical-free and raw.
• Sunflower lecithin is rich in choline and other essential fatty acids such as phosphatidylinositol.
• Some people may develop soy allergies.
• Soy is often genetically engineered.
• There are concerns of elevated estrogen levels by consuming soy and soy lecithin.

So, let’s talk sunflower lecithin for your pet

Sunflower lecithin acts as the body’s emulsifier by helping to dissolve fats and cholesterol. It allows oil and water to interact, and has therefore the ability to keep cholesterol particles in solution while journeying through the arteries. This stops cholesterol from forming hazardous deposits on the walls of blood vessels, which can lead to narrowing or total blockage of the vessel. Furthermore, sunflower lecithin aids in liquefying the deposits that may have already formed.

Sunflower lecithin also helps to metabolize fat in the liver and decreases the risk of liver degeneration. Sunflower lecithin is a vital component of every cell in the body, and found in high concentration in the vital organs such as the brain, heart, liver, and the kidneys. Additionally, it supports the skin, hair, and nervous system.

In the brain, lecithin choline is transformed into acetycholine, which is a vital compound for the transmission of messages from one nerve ending to another. Upon ingestion, the choline derived from sunflower lecithin is absorbed by the brain and aids in memory, thinking ability and muscle control. It also helps with absorption of vitamins A and D in the intestinal tract.

So, in short: soy-free, non-GMO organic Sunflower Lecithin is known to:

• Emulsify cholesterol
• Have a positive effect on memory, clarity and muscle control
• Assist vitamin absorption
• Be oil free
• Support the immune system and healing capabilities
• Coat health

When Should You Use Sunflower Lecithin For Your Pet?

Lecithin is already present in your pet’s body and is essential for the well being of all cells, preventing health problems.

Lecithin may also be found in a number of ingredients such as:

• Egg yolk
• Cabbage
• Split peas
• Cauliflower
• Seeds and nuts
• Fish eggs
• Organic meat
• Animal brain (i.e. chicken and sheep)
• Animal liver and kidneys

But if not consumed in sufficient amounts, your pet may easily be affected by viruses and diseases. Lecithin provides immune system support and can help when your pet is recuperating after a disease or a surgery. Lecithin also supports a healthy, shiny coat.

For dogs specifically, lecithin may be administered as a supplement for dogs that are preparing to start a training course or are on a training course. Studies have shown that lecithin improves memory and orientation and should be beneficial when your pet is learning commands and other tricks.
