I am having trouble figuring out how this might be working in emema form.
Lechitin/PC is only slightly soluble in water it is fat/veggie oil soluble. This being true then you have granuals of lechitin sitting in your lower colon/rectum. If there is any fat pr possible bile salts around then it might help to dissolve it, whether it dissolves in mucus is unknown by me. The article at the start of the thread indicates that PC does not intigrate into the mucus,I suspect this is due to solubility.
I am not sure how they tested pc solubility in mucuc,perhaps they just tried to mix it with bowel mucus, outside the body,perhaps in the body its solubility is increased.
This brings up another point where the enteric coated lechitin would appear to dissolve in the chime when released into the distal ileum,so how is it doing this.
More interesting info is that in their 04 patent they indicate the use of enemas as an application method.
