Product Overview

Description

  • Essential Nutrient
  • Naturally Occurring Phosphatidyl Choline & Other Phosphatides
  • GMP Quality Assured
  • Vegetarian/Vegan

Lecithin is a naturally occurring compound found in all cells in nature, plant and animal. The word Lecithin is taken from the Greek Lekithos, which means "egg yolk". A fitting name for this essential nutrient, for the egg is considered a symbol of life, strength and fertility.

Our brain is approximately 30% Lecithin. The insulating myelin sheaths that protect the brain, spine and thousands of miles of nerves in your body are almost two-thirds Lecithin. Even the heart has a high concentration of Lecithin. Lecithin is composed of many naturally occurring components, including Choline, Inositol, Linoleic Acid, Phosphatidyl Serine, fatty acids and triglycerides. NOW Lecithin Granules are derived entirely from soybeans.

Suggested Use

Take 2 tablespoons daily, preferably with a meal. Mix in juice or shakes, or sprinkle on food.

noticeable improvement

Posted by 5610018190165393149 on Nov 11, 2013

I have taken this as part of liver-boosting diet in combination with other Now Foods products for that condition. couldn't believe how fast my liver function blood test results improved. And it might be just a coincidence, but there has been some relief in my arm, I have been having pains in ever since I suffered nerve damage in the neck area. And finally, I have even used it in preparing food, deserts mostly.

Used for a year and switching

Posted by kanaca on Sep 03, 2013

I use it to make liposomal C. Now I need it also for InositolCholine. However, NOW uses GMO sources?! And, I need to cut out soy because it affects my thyroid. I love NOW. I wish they offered sunflower lecithin in granules, too. Not just in caps.

10g = brain fog

Posted by Reviewer1596539 on Feb 26, 2013

Gave me brain fog at the recommended amount. Not sure if lower amounts helped with cognitive function or not. I will try this again sometime in the future.
