Harmful or Harmless: Soy Lecithin

Soy can mimic estrogen which feeds tumor growth, so I try and avoid it. I also started taking a turmeric supplement for anti-inflammatory purposes. Would you recommend NOT taking these? The pills are expensive and much less effective than making your own paste and making golden milk or put it in a smoothie or something. Or turmeric user group in Facebook.. Anne, I buy fresh organic turmeric rhizomes from the grocery and use them for tea, broth, etc. Before I found those I just used the organic powdered form in the spice section.

Stay away from supplement form if you can. I have hypothyroid disease and generally avoid soy because of the disease.

How is this different then the soy that is in food that I avoid. If my multi-vitamin has soy lecithin in it should I also avoid that multi-vitamin since I avoid most of the soy I find in ingredients for my food? I, too, have hypothyroidism autoimmune and I would like to know the answer to this, as well.

I have read that there are many benefits from taking lecithin supplements but, from this article, it sounds like choline is actually doing the body good.

My biggest symptom was severe sinus inflammation which were so severe that we believed to be migraines for the first few years. For severe chronic sinus problems, read up on serrapeptase.

I just recently started taking it so its too soon to tell but the information looks promising! Chronic sinus problems are also linked to dairy and gluten sensitivity. Try eliminating both of these for a month and see if there is an improvement. If either are the culprit it will take this long to find relief with a strict diet excluding both.

All the above stopped when I found out I have a Gluten Intolerance problem. Been GF for over 4 years and have never been sick since then. As for diary,Ive known the dangers of consuming that since I was a kid. Our Doctor when I was little told my Mom to keep it away from us.

Casein in milk causes blocked sinuses. Those intolerant will find the symptoms pronounced if they supplement with Micellar Casien as found in protein shakes used by fitness enthusiasts. Similar reactions to other cassienates found in these shakes. A few days off it and the blocked noses clear up. Soy lecithin is a compound produced from soybean oil. Soy lecithin supplements may help decrease the symptoms of certain medical conditions and are often marketed commercially as a weight-loss aid.

However, there is little reputable scientific evidence to indicate that using soy lecithin regularly has any beneficial effect on weight. Talk to your doctor about the possible drawbacks of making soy lecithin a part of your weight-management regimen and about other lifestyle changes that can contribute to enhanced health and sustainable weight loss.

I wonder if this research, refers to the promising studies surrounding the use of D Chiro Inositol, which have suggested improvements in insulin resistance for women with PCOS and Type 2 Diabetics.?

Soy Lecithin is a dietary source, high in D Chiro Inositol. Taking mg 2 pills with each meal along with Vitamin E and Omega-3 has been a miracle at disintegrating gall stones over the course of a couple months.

So glad to have avoided gall bladder surgery. Please tell me if you take organic tablets, and what make? I would like to know, if it is chemicals, mostly vitamins or is the soy organic. The product is MediFast. Medifast is soy based. I lost a lot of weight on it but then was diagnosed with estrogen positive Breast cancer and gained all my weight back!

Do you know if that include soy lecithin? I am soy allergic and I have had reactions to both spy oil and Soy Lecithin. Just this past week another one to Soy Lecithin in a bread that did not have it before but they now they added it to the bread recently. Had a reaction a few months back when someone use a can of supposed canola oil spray and yup they also had started adding Soy Lecithin to it as well I get fairly severe reactions so all these manufactures using Soy Lecithin in everything they make is a real issue for me and others with severe Soy Allergies.

It may be worth looking into Hexane sensitivity if you have an allergy soy lecithin but not to whole soy. I traced my sinus pain, asthma reaction, and vertigo back to consuming soy lecithin years ago but would still ocassionally have reactions in spite of avoiding soy lecithin.

Would you recommend a person with a history of thyroid disorder particularly thyroid nodules stay away from daily supplements that may contain soy lecithin? In regards to whether it is safe to use soy lecithin if you have hypothyroidism. It should be safe. I would refer you to the following website. Thanks for the run down. I have an allergy to soy, such as tofu, edamame, soy milk. I have many other allergies and I know it depends on the amount and form of proteins — I have a severe reaction to some things raw, but once they are cooked beyond recognition I can tolerate them.

So for almost Our body struggle to survive in nature because the nature is not specifically designed for us. Better stats when comparing longevity, whether it be between our ancient brethren and us or across the last century years is to compare adult death rates, not general populations that include infants and the young. Childhood illness, accidents etc. Adult comparison from age 20 gives about the best comparisons of longevity across the ages. Using this measure, our grandparents actually did very well compared to us death rates and now.

Cancer rates and heart disease in the adult set were very uncommon until the s when they began to rise dramatically, due to denuding of grains in processing another factors chemicals for one ; today, both heart disease and cancer rates are skyrocketing and a decline in longevity is happening.

The real boost in the last century to longevity were modern cleanliness, antibiotics and work related laws. Remember, survival depends on knowledge from the older generations, a vital link to past dangers. If few lived beyond age 30, it is unlikely our species would have survived. Namaste and care, mhikl. Well, nature was made for us to enjoy! Its as simple as Adam n Eve who sinned and did not listen to God.

Since then we all are born with sin and it has its effects on the mind evil people putting chemicals in our foods , as well as sins effect on the physical body sickness and age of dying.

It comes down to your free will God gave you and how you use it. Believe what u want to believe, everyone has free speech, you said ur point of view about nature n man, n here is mine. Have a good day.! It is untrue because the Bible lets us know that Adam and Eve lived no longer then at most years ago. There is nothing wrong with eating any way you prefer to if it makes you feel healthy, but please do not base it on the lie of evolution.

Not only your physical health and well being are at stake here, but your eternal destiny. Out of place artifacts and other historical evidence suggest otherwise. There is nothing wrong with eating like cave men. You say they all died young as if it was their diet that killed them, and that is a crock.

Cave men and women died young because of exposure, accidents, animal attacks, insect bites, snake bites, drowning, bad weather, disease, and violence with other men and women……. In response to the person who asked why would we want to eat like cavemen as they died young, you have to remember, that cave people also had environmental threats on their lives.

For example, they could easily freeze to death, or be eaten by a larger animal. They could twist their ankle and be left behind by their tribe or clan because they were a burden. If food was scarce, they could starve to death. The bottom line is, they did not have all the modern day diseases that we suffer from today because we eat the standard American diet SAD.

Meaning that a lot of people died but not from cancer, heart disease or diabetes which are diet related!!! Whether they died from hunger or cold at 2 years old or were eaten by a lion at 43 or injured themselves at 69 and bled out. What is the nature of your worry? By the way you should explore the Budwig diet on the astounding applications of the stuff.

I try to not google much but when I saw the jelly beans I have for my kids and I love them too contains soy lecithin I was shocked and my husband said that product is in a lot of candy. I will err on the side of staying away unless it is fermented. You do not stay need to stay away from flaxseed. It is about the healthiest thing you can eat combined with cottage cheese, neither the CC nor the Flax seed seed retain their original state but turn into a very healthy supplement.

Please do check out the Budwig diet. It is a miracle that has healed many of cancer and heart disease and diabetes. My daughter is allergic to soy and almost died due to the soy lecithin which was hidden on the ingredients list. Thank G-d she was close to a hospital where they were able to get an epi-shot into her. She MUST carry an epi-pen with her at all times. I am also a non-gmo freak and there is no way anyone can tell me the stuff is safe. The myth, and that is what it is- a myth that soy is in someway bad for you is an unfortunate lie being told over and over again!

Soy is nearly a perfect food, the phytoestrogen it contains is nothing like animal estrogens that have been linked to cancer. God gave us soy to eat, buy organic and eat to your hearts content! Or in your classification of organic? Or is it a myth that soy converts to MSG in the body? Yes, allergy to soy is a lie. Next time I am in the er in anaphylaxis I will just say to myself, walk it off. Soy allergy is a lie.

I am totally sure the blood allergy tests are a lie too. I am also allergic to nuts and eggs. My son is allergic to beef and pork, although just hives.

I bought protein powder and they say that it contains mg of soy lecithin per serving. I drink it twice a day so its mg. Is this to much? I am TTC and a acupuncture lady said no soy for me. But its hard to find price decent protein powders with NO soy. Of all the protein powders I found this one has no soy and it tastes brilliant i think because all it has in it is whey.

Kamila, I have never understood why anyone would use protein powders. Protein is so complex and is found in animal and plant sources when combined properly—if you are vegetarian. Have you tried hemp protein? Hemp seed are a complete protein, which are easily digested, and if grown in Australia they are also organic. It is legal to purchase them in Australia and take them overseas to be consumed however it is illegal to eat them in Australia.

They do not have the effects of marijuana. I have a question. I was told by a midwife that if I take a soy lethicin supplement it will help me heal from ligament stretching in my pelvis. I was unable to walk for two months after the last baby I had and am now pregnant again.

Right now I avoid most soy in processed food unless it happens to be in chocolate or eggs in the wintertime feed. What can I do as I have been told that soy is bad. Your article is saying different and unfortunately I am just taking peoples word about soy because I am not a nutritionist. I do not want to harm the baby as it grows but also would like to avoid this pain after the birth too. Hello Kim, If your midwife thinks lecithin is a good idea, you could try either sunflower or eggyolk lecithin.

I had to use crutches and cried in pain everyday. Good luck and always heal yourself naturally xx. Our cultures have lost the ancient wisdoms handed down by mid-wives and natural healers.

Anything not accepted by Big Pharma and the bought medical system are tossed out as quackery. My mum was killed by the med profession when in hospital when she was not allowed to bring in her magnesium supplements, so I speak from experience, and resentment.

She was simply being assessed at the age of 74, in a hospital suite, for independent living. RiboCein is what we use to increase the natural production of intracellular glutathione and by increasing glutathione gsh inflammation goes down and pain disappears.

Usually allergies are a result of less than perfect immune system and this some times can be corrected. The benefits of increasing glutathione production are too many to list here but allergies gone could be one of them. What about lecithin supplements derived from sunflower seeds? Your article mentions various sources for lecithin, but discusses only soy-derived lecithin.

I have a problem with soya and soya products. But what is the reason behind this? The other 30 converts to MSG and describes a handful of negative effects all the way to liver failure… Article is http: By law lecithin sold in the US cannot contain more than 0. The internet is a wonderful thing anyone including me can write it and it becomes fact or truth. You CB are right about one thing: If they extract 70 percent protein from the soy then it is not 70 that stays in it.

This extraction in the article par. I take soy lecithin as a supplement because of the high phosphatidyl serine content. Should I stop taking it?

So now another safe way to deliver vitamin C is no longer safe? We were taking the new kind of delivery system by LiveOn Labs, of soy nanobubbles delivering dissolved C straight through the gut into the bloodstream.

This is heartbreaking to me, because my cousin has this breast cancer and we both felt it was safe based on several articles and one medical study abstract, but she has developed new tumors in spite of doing everything she can to filter her water, give up processed foods, changing to organic toiletries, and in general reading all labels.

She is off the lipospheric C and now just takes the Ester C. Hello Tess, There is another very effective way to take vitamin C, dissolve the crystals in water with half as much baking soda and after it stops fizzing, drink. Here is a video of Captain Randall the author of Forbidden Healing showing how: I have not seen this, but do wonder how the baking soda helps get it through the gut without breaking down the C.

I will certainly check this out. My husband and I also take the liposomal vitamin c though, we make our own and really like the way it works. I have often wondered whether or not the soy lecithin has an effect on my hormones. It seems when I take it my mood changes. We have, however, used sunflower lecithin as a substitute, but I am not sure that it works as well as soy lecithin. Anyway, just wanted to let you know that there are other lecithins on the market.

Also, that any male still wishing to have children should avoid soy, as it will reduce testosterone levels. China and Japan have a long history of high soy consumption and they now have the highest populations.

Normal intake of soy is about 25 grams, but as I get older and my natural ability to produce T decreases, I have reduced the amount of soy intake.

For women an increased chance of breast and cervical cancer may exist with high levels of estrogen. Also bone density will decrease if the levels of T decreases. Just think of T levels being inversely proportional to estrogen levels as a rule of thumb. No, I know both sides of the soy issue and choose to stay away unless it is fermented and then only in moderation.

Soy formula was approved by WIC back in and now those women who were fed soy formula have thyroid issues. Breast cancer rates are ever increasing and girls as young as 7 are starting their periods and developing breasts. Too much is unknown. Found the article on sugar very enlightening, thank you.

And they put it in infant formula. Hi Chris, the great dr Jensen highly recommended soy lecithin. Are you aware of the studies using flax seed that helped the body metabolize estrogen into the cancer protective metabolites? You stuck to facts and put things in perspective.

An answer to that question could have been the most important part of your article. I would like an answer to that, too. Elevated cholesterol and hypothyroid seem to go hand in hand. What can we do to lower our cholesterol? I found another source that said soy lecithin powder has had the estrogens and other toxic compounds removed but that the granulated form has soybean oil mixed with the powder and does contain some of these compounds.

Is this enough to be concerned about, and why would they add soybean oil to the soy lecithin powder? Soy Lecithin is now commonly used as a mixing emulsifier, especially with chocolate. I so wish Soy lecithin was taken out of everything and rated as a poison. I might one day be able to live here without being in fear of digesting Soy lecithin.

I assume this would also apply to infant formula. Carolyn, from what I can glean, soy lecithin is much higher in phosphatides than sunflower lecithin.

What can you, Mr. Kresser tell me about this — and would you please respond to my e-mail? I am very allergic to soy, with a very specific reaction that differs from my other allergies. It has been difficult to find the soy in my diet recently. After looking up one of the E ingredients E , I found that it is lecithin, and most likely soy. I am certain that this is the source of my recent problems. It angers me to see sources saying that soy lecithin and soy oil do not affect people with soy allergy.

It is also frustrating that most milk products are having soy added to them canned milk and powdered milk. I drink fresh milk, but I like to use stronger milk as a sweetener. Even makeups are switching ingredients to soy. I all of a sudden have a reaction, and find they have changed their formulae. I have contacted several companies, but unless other people do to, it feels hopeless that things will get safer. Watch what you eat, most animals fed Soy lecithin, have it in their meat and eggs.

Kresser has written about before???? It is not an allergy. I was given two boxes of wonderful sounding tea for Christmas…but with soy lecithin….

You say it yourself, soy lecithin appears in all kinds of foods, I know, because I am going out of my way to avoid it, a job which calls for huge determination! I think it is important for spokespeople, representing medical science and industry, to keep in mind that not everyman thralls through the ingredient list to look and see if there are potentially contents that calls for further research before consumption.

After reading all the info I wonder if it is worth the risk since I also have high blood pressure. In fact my oncologist is not freaked out about soy at all really. She said in moderation is fine.

Is soy lecithin dangerous for breast cancer survivors? I keep getting mixed information. My cousin was taking the lipsomal C which is made with non GMO soy lecithin. We talked My Sunflower Oil into making lecithin granules so we could make it at home, but even sunflowers have phytoestrogens. Someone needs to find out the truth about this. No articles or studies out there agree on this issue. Just want to say that after having severe hives for suddenly for several years I have finally narrowed it down to happening when I eat foods that have soy lecithin.

Everything from cheese, chocolate, red vine candy to all kinds of frozen foods…. I generally avoid soy as much as possible except for the small amounts of raw fermented organic soy sauce and soy lecithin in some chocolates. However, I do eat about tablespoons of whole flax seeds per day. I read somewhere that only ground flax seeds have estrogenic effect on the body and that whole flax seeds are ok to consume.

A low energy diet was the method used in the study and it was based on the Cambridge weight plan. This diet limited the daily caloric intake to between — calories.

The low energy menu used for the study contained a range of flavorful meal replacements such as soups, shakes, protein bars and oatmeal.

The initial study lasted nine weeks and the subjects then followed a one-year program for weight maintenance that included monthly professional counseling sessions.

I have two kids who are makers When I saw this cookbook, I thought it would be a great way to let them choose a recipe or two to try and insert a bit of responsibility on their part. What's so good about it? I am so glad I did! The size is great, about the size of a small pizza box. The paper quality is amazing.

It feels good as you are looking through the pages, the photos and type are easy to read, and it is durable. The pages have a yellow band at the outer side that gives guidance about the recipe on the left side vegan, nut-free, etc and lists the chapter name on the right side. I love the attention to detail, and it makes the cookbook itself so much easier to use. Dietary needs including allergies and lifestyle diets are all accommodated. Meat eaters and vegans can coexist within this book's covers.

I didn't realize that the author really meant the subtitle about bringing the whole family together More bonus points for creating a cookbook that is really useful again and again, even as the family changes. That might seem obvious, but it wasn't to me. I really was excited when I saw the cauliflower crust recipe. Overall, this is a wonderful cookbook for healthy eaters, families who want to eat healthier, and kids who are forming their diet and lifestyle habits.

It is filled with good stuff, and I am just amazed each time I go back to look for more ideas because I find something unexpected each time. I received this book at a discount or for free in exchange for my honest and unbiased review. I honestly just love it! Up until recently, I was pretty predictable with the kind of pizza I ate. After being on Nutrisystem for 3 months, I grew to love their marghartia pizza and started kind of broadening my tastes.

First and foremost, I prefer thin crust, but that could be because I never had a chance to try real good fresh made crusts. This book is definitely for the pizza lover that wanted to try new flavors.

It starts out with the basics and talks a little bit about the essential items you need to make the perfect pizza.

It's all about getting the flavor of each topping in every bite so it suggests not to completely overload your pizza with toppings.
