Abstract or Summary
  • The effect of supplementary lecithin on plasma lipids was studied. Thirty-one men between the ages of 38 and 56 were given 7.2 gm of supplemental lecithin per day in the form of Soya Lecithin. Supplementation lasted for a period of seven and a half to eight weeks. Blood was analyzed both before and after supplementation in order to determine total plasma phospholipid, triglyceride, cholesterol and total lipid levels. Supplementary information was obtained about smoking habits, activity levels and percent of desirable weight for each subject. The phospholipid profile of randomly selected samples was also determined in order to find any possible changes in the individual phospholipids. There was no significant change in either phospholipid, triglyceride, total lipids, or the individual phospholipids, However, there was a significant increase in cholesterol. A positive correlation between plasma triglycerides and both cigarette smoking and the percent of desirable weight was discovered. There was also a negative correlation between activity and plasma triglycerides.
