What is lecithin?
Lecithin is a vital component to each and every cell in our bodies. Lecithin helps prevent the cell membranes from becoming hard and allows them to remain healthy. Lecithin has become a popular supplement especially with regard to improving cholesterol levels as well as improving the functions of the nervous and circulatory systems.
About our sunflower lecithin powder
Soy was once the dominant source for lecithin in food, ours comes from sunflowers and is preferred by those seeking an alternative due to their concerns about soy. Many people have soy allergies, and most soy is genetically modified.
Lecithin is often used as a cooking ingredient, but it is also taken it as a nutritional supplement as it is known as a beneficial source of phosphatidylinositol, phosphatidylethanolamine, and phosphatidylcholine.
Phosphatidylcholine is a nutrient that aids in memory, muscle conditioning and maintaining the nervous system. Lecithin’s greatest benefit is that it has an abundance of essential fatty acids. Sunflower lecithin has the same overall fatty acid composition as soy lecithin, but sunflowers have more stearic acid and linoleic acid than soy, which is believed to help lower cholesterol levels.
