Chlorophyll from green foods in Green Vibrance further supports the action of probiotics. Apple fiber from our certified organic whole apple powder plus soluble fibers from acacia as well as sunflower lecithin help support elimination of heavy metals, cholesterol and toxins from the intestinal tract before they can be absorbed. To a lesser degree, soluble fibers can perform similar tasks in the circulating blood itself.
Cell membranes are made up primarily of a double layer of phospholipids (i.e. phosphorus containing fats.) Lecithin is 97 to 98% phospholipids, the remaining percentages being water and mineral ash. Lecithin, therefore, supplies major structural components to every cell membrane in the human body. You can’t keep your cells together or functioning without them.
Dr. Richard Wurtman, at M.I.T. demonstrated how just 35 mg. of phosphatidyl choline each day could improve intelligence and cognitive function. The 700 mg of sunflower lecithin in one serving of Green Vibrance delivers approximately 160 milligrams of phosphatidyl choline, 4.6 times the dosage Wurtman found to improve cognition. The great depth of research on lecithin shows how it is not only critical to brain function, but also helps maintain the myelin sheath protecting and insulating nerves. Lecithin additionally mobilizes cholesterol for use in hormone synthesis and for removal from the body.
The functions of lecithin are basic, foundational functions critical to human survival. It is difficult to build a house of good health on a flawed foundation where nerves misfire, circulation is inadequate, and cell membranes are stiff and crippled in their ability to function because phospholipids were undersupplied.
