Were you looking for information about Lecithin? Lethicine is a common misspelling of lecithin.
Lecithin is a dietary supplement that is claimed to provide numerous health benefits. It is believed to be beneficial for treating a wide variety of medical conditions, including gallbladder disease, high cholesterol, and bipolar disorder. Lecithin is a complex mixture of different compounds (such as triglycerides, carbohydrates, and fatty acids), and it is not entirely clear how it might work or whether it is even effective. The supplements have been reported to cause abdominal pain, nausea, and other digestive system problems.
