Lecithin - Essential Nutrient For Everyone

Lecithin - is a substance called a phospholipid. It is produce daily by the liver if the diet is adequate. Lecithin is needed by every cell in the body and largely makes up cell membranes.

This makes it ideal in preventing arteriosclerosis and assisting in protecting against cardiovascular disease. Lecithin protects cells from oxidation and make up the protective sheaths surrounding the brain. Using it can improve the brain function. Lecithin makes sure that the fat and cholesterol that is traveling through the blood stream stays solvent in the water so that it will not attach to the artery walls.

Lecithin disperses fat in water and keeps fat from clogging the cardiovascular system. Primary component of Lecithin is Choline. Because choline is so critical in brain and nerve development, it is required in infant formulas. Most recently, lecithin has been found to be critical in cell communications, the process by which cells work together in the body. Defects in cell communications are thought to underlie certain diseases such as cancer and Alzheimer's. Late last year, two scientist who discovered the process of cell communications were awarded the Nobel Price.

Lecithin and Pregnancy

Recent research shows that lecithin and its primary component - choline - are involved in maintaining a healthy pregnancy and in infant development.

Additionally, choline is important in some functions of folic acid, a vitamin that scientists and government authorities now urge women to take to help prevent certain birth defects. Lecithin and choline play many roles in reproduction and development. Because choline is especially important to the growing brain and nervous system of infants, the Infants Formula Act and the American Academy of Pediatrics require that infant formulas provide choline.

Lecithin and Liver Problems

Lecithin consists of fatty acids and the nutrient choline. Because choline deficiency causes abnormal liver function, the scientists thought lecithin's protective effect might be due to choline. However, they found that only lecithin, not its choline or fatty-acid components, protected the liver. Another liver disorder is cirrhosis a life-threatening condition, which the liver becomes filled with fibrous tissue, and as the result functions poorly. The researchers showed that lecithin may act by increasing the liver's breakdown of the fibrous tissue that causes cirrhosis. Lecithin aids in the absorption of thiamin by the liver and is needed to help repair the damage to the liver caused by alcoholism. Other studies also have confirmed the protective effect of lecithin in proper functioning of the liver.

Lecithin and its choline component provide important benefits in:

For those concerned about maintaining an adequate lecithin intake, it is available as a nutritional supplement.


The Quality Lab Unbleached Lecithin is produced from the highest quality soya beans and is pharmaceutical grade.

White Shark Cartilage

Shark Cartilage powder has been on the market for many years, being promoted as a great factor in curing certain types of cancer and tumors. Cartilage in some animals including sharks does not develop a blood supply. The basis for shark cartilage therapy is that if the blood supply to tumors can be interrupted, they will stop growing and eventually die. It was discovered during its use for cancer therapy, that shark cartilage extract had a profound ability to decrease the pain and stiffness associated with human osteo and rheumatoid arthritis, and it has been promoted for these conditions extensively.

There are 4 main ingredients that produce these results: Chondroitin sulphate and Hyaluronic acid act by feeding the articular cartilage cells and improving their shock absorbing properties, and they also inhibit the action of degenerative enzymes produced in an inflamed / arthritic joint, which are responsible for eroding joint cartilage surfaces. Glucosamine (which combines to form chondroitin sulphate and hyaluronic acid) stimulates the production of joint tissue, articular cartilage and joint fluid. And finally, the anti-neoangiogenesis factor, which prevent new blood vessel growth, and are the factors believed to stop cancer and tumor growth, prevent the development of new blood vessels into damaged joints that normally result in calcification (mineral deposits) and abnormal bone growth within arthritic joint. Shark cartilage in capsules form is now being used successfully to combat the pain of arthritis. It contains large amounts of mucopolysaccharides which stimulate the immune system.

To receive high quality cartilage, it has to be harvested only from the spine of the shark - SHARK GOLD IS!
