I was surprised to find this Lecithin seems to make me relax and sleep more soundly. I did not expect this but since it is a major part of the chemicals that are in the brain and nerves, I am not surprised. I started taking it due to wanting liver support but had the pleasant effect of feeling calmer. I take 2 a day.

Lecithin also assists with the break down in fats and chlorestorel in the body.
Revised: This is NOT it -- TRIPLE strength -- the best brain food

I am updating my review because of an unexpected side effect that occurred, and it also happened to my sister. I have taken triple-strength lecithin for most of my adult life for brain food. I am in my fifties and menopausal. After taking this latest batch for a while, I started having a period. I would not have made the connection except for the fact that the very same thing happened to my sister, who is 5 years older than me and has also used 3X lecithin for years. We stopped taking it and things went back to normal. I can only deduce that this is likely a side effect from the product being derived from soybeans that are not organically grown. And if they are not organic, they are of course genetically modified. GMO soybeans have hormonal effects on women. I recommend Health Alliance's Non-GMO Lecithin Powder as an excellent source of phosphatidyl choline and phosphatidyl inosital. It is available at i-Herb. My original 5-star review: iHerb's price on Now Foods triple strength lecithin is a great value. Thinking people burn up lots of phosphorus. It needs to be replaced for good brain functioning and sharp memory. Triple strength lecithin will do it.

Helps to digest fats by emulsifying them. Plus, seems to nourish the brain for sharper thinking. May be good to take with other fatty supplements like fish oil, vitamin E, etc.
