Lipid metabolism and cholesterol levels have long been studied for their impact on cardiovascular disease. Atherosclerosis, one of the most serious cardiovascular diseases, can affect individuals as young as 20 to 29 years old. A major contributing factor to this disease is a diet that is deficient in antioxidants and unsaturated fats. Recent studies have shown that a lecithin-rich diet can modify the cholesterol homeostasis and lipoprotein metabolism.
Lecithin has been shown to reduce the excess of LDL cholesterol, which is the harmful type of cholesterol, and promotes the synthesis of the beneficial cholesterol, HDL. In addition, a lecithin-rich diet encourages bile acid secretion, which is high in cholesterol and phospholipids.
A study(1) evaluated the effect of soy lecithin on patients with hypercholesterolemia. Thirty volunteers were selected and given either a placebo capsule or a soy lecithin capsule. After one month of treatment, the results showed a reduction of 40.66% in total cholesterol and 42.05% in LDL cholesterol. After two months, the reduction increased to 42.00% in total cholesterol and 56.15% in LDL cholesterol. These results suggest that daily administration of soy lecithin may be a supplemental treatment for hypercholesterolemia.
