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 occurring components, including Choline, Inositol, Linoleic Acid, Phosphatidyl Serine, fatty acids and triglycerides. NOW Non-GMO Lecithin Granules are derived entirely from Non-Genetically Modified soybeans that have been Identity Preserved (IP). This guarantees that the soybeans are from seedstock that has been certified as Non-GMO.
Take 1 1/2 tablespoons daily, preferably with a meal. Mix in juice or shakes, or sprinkle on food.
Non-GMO soy lecithin granules.
Caution: Do not eat freshness packet enclosed.
Store in a cool, dry place after opening.

iHerb Customer Reviews
I have been using this product for a few years and the last couple cans I bought have been different in color and texture. It is dryer and darker in color and I can tell a difference in the results from taking it. I contacted NOW and was told the recent batches were from a new vendor and it "should be ok". I ended up switching to Lewis Labs brand and am happy with it, although the price is around $5 higher.
I enjoy 1-2 Tablespoons of Now Lecithin Granules in my morning smoothie because of its high choline and inositol content, to increase acetycholine for memory and learning and increase GABA to help me be calm, stable and relaxed.
i bought cause it was recommended online by healthcare experts and here

I ve only been taking this granules for a few weeks but I can feel a difference. I ve been having sleeping problems and it helps to calm my anxiety and feel relaxed by the time i have to go to bed. I use a tbl spoon and a half in my afternoon smoothie. Doen't make me drowsy. Works magic with my brain to give me a good night sleep. I was sceptical about it at first and now i will sure buy it again.
