What is Soy lecithin 1200mg?
Soy lecithin 1200mg by HSNessentials is a product made from phospholipids extracted from natural soy beans, without genetically modified organisms.
The result is a food supplement rich in essential polyunsaturated fatty acids from natural vegetable sources.
Why take Soy lecithin 1200mg?
Soy is a legume that is very rich in fats. When we extract the lecithin, an element that makes up the structure of the plant, we obtain a product with a high percentage of phospholipids. These are extremely interesting when it comes to complementing the nutrition of athletes and the general population.
What are phospholipids?
Phospholipids are structures made from the esterification of glycerol and fatty acids, almost always polyunsaturated.
This form of lipids is very important for the organism because, among its many functions, they are part of the membranes that make up the cells of the entire organism. Without phospholipids, it would not be possible to have a food healthy because our cells would start to be damaged.
Soy lecithin and phospholipids
Soy lecithin is one of the most important natural sources of phospholipids. One of the elements that stand out from its composition is phosphatidylcholine, which is the most abundant phospholipid in lecithin. Moreover, there are others such as phosphatidylinositol or phosphatidylethanolamine.
They are all important in the organism, but phosphatidylcholine stands out due to its important functions in the bile metabolism.
Soy lecithin and hepatic health
Choline is an essential nutrient that is known for its effect on preserving a good hepatic health.
One of the reasons is that choline can transform into phosphatidylcholine, the most abundant phospholipid in the bile. This element can emulsify hydrophobic molecules, dissolving the cholesterol, buffering the bile toxicity and preventing the formation of stones and bile pigments that can negatively affect our health (Gauss et al., 2013).
The phosphatidylcholine from soy lecithin is a nutrient that plays a very important role in the bile flow in order to naturally “detoxify” the organism.
Soy lecithin and cholesterol
The phospholipids from soy lecithin are mainly made up of polyunsaturated fatty acids.
Linoleic acid is the most common fatty acid in soy lecithin. In fact, up to a 65% of the weight of lecithin comes from this fatty acid (Knuiman et al., 1989).
Linoleic acid has a strong positive effect on the cholesterol concentrations. It has proven that it can lower the LDL cholesterol (“bad”) concentrations and improve the HDL/LDL ratio (“good”/“bad”) (Mensik et al., 2003).
The linoleic acid from soy lecithin helps to regulate the blood cholesterol concentrations.
HSN, always a good choice
HSN and making supplements for everyone
In HSN, we are aware that part of the population is vegan, and we think that this should not be a limitation when it comes to food supplements. That is why we always pay a lot of attention when selection the ingredients of our products in order to discard ingredients that come from animals.
Soy lecithin comes from a vegetable source that is suitable for vegans, but its maximum phospholipid content is oily.
This means that the format has to be softgels to prevent the content from leaking. However, most of the softgels from the competence are made from gelatin, which comes from the joint cartilage of animals such as cows and pigs.
If a product can be perfectly suitable for vegans, why does that have to change due to the use of excipients?
In HSN, we are strongly against this practice!
That is why we use the latest technological advancements in the field of food supplement production in order to develop softgels with vegetable glazing agents.
Our softgels have been made with starch, a glazing agent that comes from cereals and which is completely suitable for vegans. Complementing your diet with essential fats has never been so easy.
We believe in sustainability and the environment
Currently, soy is the species that has undergone most genetic modifications in order to resist the use of herbicides and plagues. More than a 75% of the soy cultivated in the world is transgenic, that is, it has been genetically modified (ISAAA, 2019).
In HSN, we are aware that many people are worried about products that are made from genetically modified organisms, also due to the environmental impact of genetic engineering.
That is why, in order to honor our compromise with our customers and with a sustainable production:
We have selected a raw ingredient that comes from natural soy beans without genetic modifications.
Most of these products are sold in the market with soy lecithin that is made from transgenic soy because it is cheaper. We do not care about that. In fact, we prefer making products with natural raw ingredients that have been cultivated with traditional methods.
Because we care about you and we want the best for you.
