Discovered in 1850, Lecithin is a naturally occurring fatty substance found in foods like soybeans, whole grains and egg yolks. In the body, lecithin, a type of lipid needed in every living cell, is broken down into choline, phosphate, glycerol and fatty acids. Choline levels may be low in many individuals, particularly as the American diet includes fewer dairy products, meats and eggs.

Researchers believe choline is the key element in lecithin that helps the body. Choline is essential for cardiovascular health, brain function and cellular membrane composition and repair.

Essential fatty acids are found in every cell in the body and are necessary for proper growth and functioning of cells, muscles, nerves and organs. These fatty acids produce prostaglandins which are key to many functions in the body. Supportive but not conclusive research shows that the consumption of EPA and DHA omega-3 fatty acids may reduce the risk of coronary heart disease.

As a rich source of essential fatty acids, lecithin is very important because it helps the body utilize Vitamins A, B, E and K. Also, it naturally disperses fat and cholesterol into smaller particles, which helps keep cholesterol from collecting on the arterial walls and keeps food moving through the body efficiently. Lecithin aids in the absorption of thiamine by the liver and Vitamin A by the intestine.

While it is especially a good diet addition for elderly people, lecithin is a great addition to anyone’s diet. Our granules are a convenient and easy way to deliver to you the lecithin your body needs. Just sprinkle a tablespoon on your morning cereal or other favorite food or stir it into your favorite drink.
