DEFINITION OF LECITHIN
An emulsifier. Lecithin is an emulsifying substance found in the human body and in some natural foods including soy, sunflower oil and egg yolks. It is essential for life.
Anti-oxidant properties Lecithin is also a very important anti-oxidant nutrient that is more yang than most other anti-oxidants, which is an important benefit.
Adrenal effects Lecithin protects the adrenal hormone adrenalin (also called epinephrine) from oxidation. Oxidation of adrenalin results in the formation of adrenochrome – a toxic hormone that causes fear, anxiety, and can even cause psychosis. Lecithin also helps correct adrenal insufficiency or burnout.
Cholesterol effects Lecithin is also required for cholesterol metabolism and will help lower an elevated cholesterol level, along with chromium and zinc.
Seizures Lecithin may also help some people who have seizures or epilepsy.
USE IN MINERAL BALANCING PROGRAMS
Lecithin is recommended for anyone who is anxious due to toxic elimination on a mineral balancing program. It has a calming effect on many people. It is a wonderful addition to their mineral balancing program but not limited just for toxic elimination and can be used for nervousness due to over-active sympathetic nervous system.
Nutrients in Lecithin Lecithin is a natural source of two B-complex vitamins, choline and inositol, among other nutrients. Choline is a precursor for the calming neurotransmitter and very important substance, acetylcholine.
Lecithin is sold as capsules or granules. Either one will work. Lecithin also comes as a liquid. This is a little more messy to use, but is less expensive than capsules.
Lecithin capsules: For adults, take up to 9 1200 mg capsules daily. Only take what you need. One can vary the dosage as needed for anxiety.
Lecithin granules: The dosage is 1 to 9 tablespoons daily. Each tablespoon is usually about 7500 mg of granules. This can be put over vegetables or with other foods.
The high dosage is sometimes needed because the rogues damage the brain in a way that depletes the body’s lecithin and this causes extreme anxiety. Taking lecithin corrects the problem. Start with a lower dosage, but some people need the higher amount.
