Lecithin


Lecithin has been given the name “brain food” because of its high concentration of phosphatidyl choline. Choline, in the form of acetylcholine, is a neurotransmitter within the brain and is necessary for primary brain functions.

Lecithin also supports cell membrane chemistry, blood lipid stability as an emulsifier and overall digestion, absorption and elimination.*

Food Sources:
  • soybeans
  • egg yolk
  • liver
  • nuts
  • whole wheat


When supplementing, look for products with:
  • 100% natural and pure lecithin
  • contains choline and biologically-active inositol
  • vitamin E added to prevent oxidation
