Viral Hepatitis and Lecithin

Written by ColleenO, FoundHealth.

I'm a professional and
0 people have tried Lecithin 1 person has prescribed Lecithin

Lecithin contains a substance called phosphatidylcholine (PC). In Europe, phosphatidylcholine is also used to treat liver diseases, such as alcoholic fatty liver, alcoholic hepatitis, liver cirrhosis, and viral hepatitis.PC may enhance the effect of interferon treatment in people with chronic hepatitis C.

Effect of Lecithin on Viral Hepatitis

Lecithin contains a substance called phosphatidylcholine (PC) that is presumed to be responsible for its medicinal effects. Research has shown that PC enhanced the effect of interferon in people with chronic hepatitis C, but not in those with chronic hepatitis B.

Phosphatidylcholine is a major part of the membranes surrounding our cells. However, when you consume this substance it is broken down into the nutrient choline rather than being carried directly to cell membranes. Choline acts like folate, TMG (trimethylglycine), and SAMe (S-adenosylmethionine) to promote methylation.

Read more details about Lecithin.

Research Evidence on Lecithin

In one double-blind study, it enhanced the effect of interferon in people with chronic hepatitis C, but not in those with chronic hepatitis B.50 However, in an open study phosphatidylcholine failed to produce improvements in individuals with acute hepatitis.51

How to Use Lecithin

Ordinary lecithin contains about 10% to 20% phosphatidylcholine. However, European research has tended to use products concentrated to contain 90% phosphatidylcholine in lecithin, and the following dosages are based on that type of product. For liver disease, a typical dose is 350 to 500 mg taken three times daily.

Types of Professionals That Would Be Involved with This Treatment

  • Naturopathic doctor
  • Integrative MD
  • Nutritionist or dietitian

Safety Issues

Lecithin is believed to be generally safe. However, some people taking high dosages (several grams daily) experience minor but annoying side effects, such as abdominal discomfort, diarrhea, and nausea. Maximum safe dosages for young children, pregnant or nursing women, or those with severe liver or kidney disease have not been determined.

Also, because lecithin is typically derived from soy, people with soy allergies may want to avoid it.

I was diagnosed as HEPATITIS B carrier in 2013 with fibrosis of the liver already present. I started on antiviral medications which reduced the viral load initially. After a couple of years the virus became resistant. I started on HEPATITIS B Herbal treatment from ULTIMATE LIFE CLINIC (www.ultimatelifeclinic.com) in March, 2020. Their treatment totally reversed the virus. I did another blood test after the 6 months long treatment and tested negative to the virus. Amazing treatment! This treatment is a breakthrough for all HBV carriers.

A cheating and disloyal partner is the worse thing one can have in this life, I was very mentally unstable both at work and in the family. i couldn't understand the new behaviour of my wife, she grew distant from me and our 2 little kids, one of which i later found out by DNA test he belonged to her senior colleague at the firm.. It was all hidden until my police friend introduced me to a hacker which helped me hack into her text message conversation, this woman constantly made love on our matrimonial bed wey before we had our first child and till recently she was constantly making out with her boss right in her office and they even made videos of the sex session which i saw in her video gallery when her phone was hacked, Long story short, i am undergoing therapy now and its very working really fine, i have my child now and i have filed for divorce, now i look really good and happy even though i still remember it sometimes, it doesn't cut deep into my heart as before. its time to find new love and try new things in beautiful Earth. If you suspect any strange movement in your partner, pls go ahead and make inquiry just so you know what you are investing your time in, if its all good then you trust her more, If not then don't kill yourself in a relationship that is not meant to be. i will leave the contacts of the hacker who assisted me to hack her phone and computer device, just incase anyone is in a similar situation. website: https://refundpolici.wixsite.com/refund-policy email: refundpolici @ gmail . com Whats app Number : +1 (949) 6597928
