Table of contents
Soy Leicithin 1200mg by EssentialSeries is a food supplement in vegetable softgels, based on phospholipids extracted from natural soy beans, without genetically modified organisms.
Soy lecithin is a source of polyunsaturated fatty acids, mainly in the form of phospholipids, which are lipid complexes consisting of two fatty acids, a phosphate group and a molecule that heads the structure. The phospholipids of soy letitin consist almost entirely of phosphatidylcholine.
Soy lecithin 1200mg is a product 100% suitable for vegetarians and vegans, made in vegetable capsules, without the use of ingredients of animal origin in its composition.
Soy is a legume that is very rich in fats. When lecithin is extracted, elements that make up the plant's structures, a product with a high phospholipid content is obtained that is very interesting for supplementing the diet of sportsmen and women and the general population.
Phosphatidylcholine is the main phospholipid present in the composition of lecithins, and contains choline in its composition.
The choline contributes to:
- Normal lipid metabolism.
- Normal homocysteine metabolism.
- Maintenance of normal liver function.
In HSN we know that part of the population is vegan, and that this should not be a limiting factor for the consumption of food supplements, so in the development of our products we pay great attention to the selection of ingredients in order to rule out the use of food sources of animal origin.
Soy lecithin is a vegetable source, suitable for vegans, but with its maximum phospholipid content it is in an oily form.
This means that it has to be encased in softgels to prevent the contents from spilling out, and most competing softgels are made from gelatine, which is derived from the structures that make up the articular cartilage of animals such as cows and pigs.
Why should a product that may be perfectly suitable for vegan diets be rendered unsuitable because of the use of excipients?
In HSN we take a firm stand against this!
And we use the latest technological advances in the field of food supplement production to develop softgels with vegetable-based glazing agents.
Our softgels are made with starch, a coating agent that is derived from cereals and is completely suitable for consumption by vegans.
Soy is currently the crop species most widely genetically modified to resist the use of herbicides and pests. More than 75% of the world's soybeans are transgenic, i.e. genetically modified (ISAAA, 2019).
In HSN we are aware of the concerns that users have about the consumption of products made from genetically modified organisms, not to mention the environmental impact of genetic engineering.
For all these reasons, and in order to maintain our commitment to consumers and to sustainable production:
We have selected a raw material that has used natural, non-genetically modified soy beans.
Most of the products on the market with soy lecithin are made from genetically modified soya, because it is cheaper. We don't care about that, and we prefer to bring you a product with a natural raw material that has been cultivated according to traditional procedures.
Combine the product soy lecithin with our Vengan Omega-3!
In HSN we offer you the most complete products, suitable for vegans!
