The Many Benefits of Lecithin

Did you know that lecithin is a nutrient found in all cells in nature, both plant and animal? The word lecithin is taken from the Greek Lekithos, which means “egg yolk”. This essential nutrient gets its fitting name from the egg, which is considered a symbol of life, strength and fertility.

Brain function and nervous system health benefit from lecithin because 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 Foods Non-GMO Lecithin Granules are derived entirely from non-genetically modified soybeans that have been Identity Preserved (IP). Let’s take a more in-depth look at some of the benefits of this important nutrient.

Lecithin for Brain Function & Memory Support*

The brain depends on optimal functioning nerves to send and receive messages throughout the body. As we age, it's not uncommon for some nerve cells to break down. Lecithin may help to prevent age-related deterioration of nerve cells.* It also plays an important role in cognitive function and memory, by helping to keep nerve cell membranes healthy and supported.* According to one study, "Intake of dietary phosphatidylcholine has beneficial effects on cognitive performance."* Choline is found in lecithin and is essential for proper liver function as well as being a building block for acetylcholine.* Acetylcholine helps with muscle control as well as mood, sleep pattern regulation, learning and memory.*

As you can see, lecithin provides numerous benefits for overall health and wellness.* If you are looking for a way to support your cognitive function and memory*, as well as keep your nerve cells healthy*, consider adding NOW Foods Non-GMO Lecithin Granules to your diet. These granules are derived entirely from non-genetically modified soybeans that have been Identity Preserved (IP), making them a great choice for those who are looking for a natural way to support their health*.
