Which one is more dispersable in fluids, lecithin or hydrogenated lecithin and why?

I want to know if complete hydrogenation of lecithin helps emulsification when mixed with flluids than non-hydrogenated ones and why.

I don't think hydrogenation of lecithin improve the emulsification, although it definitely helps prevent oxidation. Hydroxylation improves hydrophilicity by adding more OH groups, making the molecule more charged.  (+ info)

What lecithin should you use when baking?

I want to purchase lecithin for a baking recipe. It just says 1 tsp. Do you use granules or liquid?

Granular. See http://www.kingarthurflour.com/shop/items/granular-lecithin-8-oz. I think you can also buy it at health food/vitamin stores, or at Whole Foods.  (+ info)

Does soy lecithin cause allergic reactions in people who are allergic to soy?

I think I have a mild soy allergy because after drinking soy milk I tend to get unusual breakouts on my face (my skin is usually quite clear). Does soy lecithin cause these reactions too?

soy lecithin is not actually a protein commonly found in soy products (weirdly named), and if you are allergic to soy being allergic to lecithin is usually connected in no way whatsoever. but if you are severly allergic to soy, then it may be possible. best to just check it out by testing for it!  (+ info)

How much lecithin should one take to reduce plaque in arteries?

Is there a natural remedy for arterial plaque removal like niacin , lecithin and vitamin D?

Check this out http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Arterial_plaque#Treatment_Options
I know that high triglycerides can be treated with niacin - not niacinamide. It has to be niacin. Doctor told us the dose was based on the flush. So take the lowest dose that results in the flush - which may need to be increased over time.
You could probably double the recomended dose of lecithin safely for a week or 2. Good luck  (+ info)

Hyperthyroidism is characterized by hypermetabolism and elevated serum levels of free thyroid hormones. Symptoms are many but include tachycardia, fatigue, weight loss, and tremor. Diagnosis is clinical and with thyroid function tests. Treatment depends on cause.(Merck)
Major clinical signs of Hyperthyroidism include weight loss (often accompanied by a ravenous appetite), anxiety, intolerance to heat, fatigue, hair loss, weakness, hyperactivity, irritability, apathy, depression, polyuria, polydipsia, and sweating.(Wikipedia)
Methimazole is used to treat hyperthyroidism, a condition that occurs when the thyroid gland produces too much thyroid hormone. It is also taken before thyroid surgery or radioactive iodine therapy.(MedlinePlus)
Methimazole and propylthiouracil are used to treat conditions in which the thyroid gland produces too much thyroid hormone.
These medicines work by making it harder for the body to use iodine to make thyroid hormone. They do not block the effects of thyroid hormone that was made by the body before their use was begun.(MayoClinic).  (+ info)

How does iron deficiency affect the composition of blood?

I have a good friend who is diagnosed with iron deficiency, although she is getting better i want to know more about her sickness. Please answer.

Iron deficiency makes it harder for your blood to provide oxygen to your body. So you could feel tired or out of breath. It's not that uncommon in women. I think, but do not know, that's it's because they have to replace the menstrual loss every month. There could be other more serious problems causing the deficiency - ask your friend about the diagnosis.

Iron-poor blood is less dense than iron-rich. When you donate blood, they'll put a drop into a special solution to see if it sinks. If it floats, there isn't enough iron. If it sinks like a rock, there's plenty.  (+ info)

What deficiency is it when you see bright dots flying in front of your eyes?

I mean when I are just not exactly looking at anythign in particular but you see bright dots/sparks flying away near your line of vision.

Weird? I thought so.But I figured this is a kind of deficiency.I remembered seeing this during pregnancy.I was anaemic then?Does this mean I am anaemic?


I thought floaters were usually dark.
My Mom had the sparks once and was told to get to a Dr. to have her eyes checked immediately. Sometimes this is an indication of something happening within your eye. I can't remember for sure but I think it has something to do with the retina separating?
Anyhow....check it out. Perhaps it is more substantial at my mom's age, but it's better to be safe then sorry!
All the best!  (+ info)

What deficiency may be the cause of my strange food craving?

I am wondering if anyone knows if this is a sign of a vitamin and/or mineral deficiency, and if so which ones? Lately, I've had this thing for English muffins topped with cream cheese and pickles??? Maybe just stress? I'm sure I'm not pregnant (on birth control), but I have heard that strange food cravings can mean that your body is lacking something. Does anyone know?

stress can be a big factor, yes. You may also not be consuming enough fats or sugar, but this doesn't mean you have to overdo it. Did you eat enough in the past days?  (+ info)

Has anyone tried taking lecithin capsules to restore hair color?

I heard it said that lecithin has the capability to restore hair to its original hair color. True or false?

Honestly, I've never heard of that before and I doubt it's true. Lecithin has a lot of benefits primarily centered around cardiovascular health, brain health, and skin health.... but I've never heard of anything even close to hair color.  (+ info)
