As lecithin helps breakdown fats and cholesterol, this keeps these substances moving rather than accumulating on artery walls. The main ingredient, lipoproteins are mainly responsible for this action. Lecithin also helps support nervous system, heart and kidneys.
It may help treat liver damage and protect against toxins. Phosphatidy choline supports the liver, particularly for people who have non-alcoholic fatty disease.
