If I told you I missed you, would you care? If I told you I couldn't live without you, would you be there? If I told you I could be your everything, would you give me a chance? If I told you I could make you happy, would you give me the perfect romance? If I told you you're the only one I think about, would you keep track? If I told you I loved you...would you love me back?

Vitamin C, also called ascorbic acid, helps to maintain healthy collagen in the skin, repair damaged tissue, promote healthy teeth and bones, and boost the immune system.

Vitamin C is one of the more powerful and well-known antioxidants. Just as exposing a cut apple to air causes it to quickly turn brown, cells of the body can also suffer damage when exposed to oxygen, a process known as oxidation. Oxidation causes aging of the skin as well as all other organs and tissues of the body. Vitamin C, as a free-radical fighter, helps ward off wrinkles and many illnesses linked to oxidation, including cataracts, arthritis, heart disease, and cancer. 
How powerful is Vitamin C? Listen to what the experts have said about this remarkable nutrient. Dr. James Enstrom of UCLA has been quoted as saying that "A thirty-five-year-old man who eats Vitamin C-rich foods and takes Vitamin C supplements will slash his chances of heart disease death by two thirds and live 6.3 years longer". And according to the late Dr. Linus Pauling--a two-time Nobel Laureate and perhaps history's strongest advocate for the benefits of Vitamin C--supplemental doses of Vitamin C could add as much as twelve to eighteen years to our lives (Dr. Pauling also held the belief that ascorbic acid held the cure to the common cold).
Are such claims unfounded? Well, as of yet, there is no proof that vitamin C can cure the common cold, though, as an immune system strengthener, ascorbic acid can certainly help alleviate the symptoms of a cold. However, when it comes to longevity, life extension, antiaging, what have you, evidence has been produced to validate the claim that Vitamin C can improve life expectancy. One analysis of the dietary consumption of eleven thousand individuals found that getting 300 milligrams daily of Vitamin C could add as much as six years to the life of a man and as much as two years to the life of a woman.
Vitamin C functions as an anti-inflammatory, and helps the body fight inflammatory diseases, including arthritis, fibromyalgia, and chronic fatigue. A multitude of other conditions may be improved vitamin C, including angina, bronchitis, bruises, canker sores, constipation, diabetes, eyestrain, gingivitis, glaucoma, hangover, infertility, joint pain, rashes, rosacea, shingles, sore throat, sprains, sunburn, and yeast infections, urinary tract infections, and scurvy (a disease caused by vitamin C deficiency). Because vitamin C helps the body absorb iron, it is also useful in treating iron deficiency and anemia.

Lecithin is a lipid that consists mostly of choline, but also includes inositol, phosphorus, and linoleic acid. Lecithin helps to prevent arteriosclerosis, protects against cardiovascular disease, improves brain function, helps keep the liver and kidneys healthy, aids in thiamin and vitamin A absorption, and can even help to repair liver damage caused by alcoholism--this nutrient is essential to every living cell in the human body.

The choline and inositol in lecithin protect against hardening of the arteries and heart disease by promoting normal processing of fat and cholesterol. Lecithin itself helps to bind fats and cholesterol to water so that they can pass through the body rather than cause a potentially harmful buildup in the heart or liver. Cell membranes, the protective sheaths surrounding the brain, and nerve cells also contain this essential fatty substance.

The choline found in lecithin helps the body produce acetylcholine, a substance that acts as a chemical messenger to parts of the nervous system, and is essential to the brain’s memory function. Studies have shown that people taking lecithin have significant improvement in memory test scores and fewer memory lapses than those who took the placebos. Dr. Safford, who conducted studies that showed lecithin and choline supplements seem to actually boost memory, also noted that the health benefits of lecithin are seen almost immediately. “ The fascinating thing about lecithin is that when it helps, it’s right away. It’s one of the few substances like alcohol, which crosses the blood-brain barrier and produces an immediate reaction.”*

Lecithin is found in a wide variety of foods. Good sources include cabbage, cauliflower, chickpeas, green beans, lentils, soybeans, corn, split peas, calves’ liver, eggs, brewer’s yeast, grains, legumes, fish, and wheat germ. It is also a common food additive to ice cream, margarine, mayonnaise, and chocolate bars.

Lecithin is also available in both natural and synthetic supplements. Taking one 1,200-milligram capsule before each meal can help the body digest fats and fat-soluble vitamins such as vitamin A, vitamin E, and vitamin D. Both soy lecithin and egg lecithin products are available. Egg lecithin may help ease symptoms of AIDS, herpes, chronic fatigue syndrome, and other autoimmune disorders, but research into this area of lecithin treatment is inconclusive at this time.

There is no Recommended Dietary Allowance (RDA) for lecithin, but most doctors suggest two tablespoons of lecithin granules be sprinkled on food each day (yogurt, soups, cereal, etc.). Excessive doses of lecithin can cause dizziness, nausea, and vomiting, so don’t take megadoses of this supplement without first consulting a physician.

*ada org ckp, lecithin ni boleh menguruskan badan sbb serap kolestrol dlm badan.. ada juga sy tebaca, lecithin ni kasi tambah metabolisme badan.. kalau mau kurus, try la makan lecithin..*
