Why you'll love it
Sunflower lecithin is a naturally occurring substance that is extracted from sunflower seeds. It is a source of essential fatty acids and choline, which are important components of our diet. Sunflower lecithin is a highly versatile supplement that provides a wide range of health benefits.
One of the key benefits of taking a sunflower lecithin supplement is that it helps to improve cognitive function. Choline, which is a component of sunflower lecithin, is an essential nutrient that is required for healthy brain function. It is involved in the production of acetylcholine, a neurotransmitter that is responsible for memory and learning. By taking a sunflower lecithin supplement, you can help to support healthy brain function and improve your overall cognitive ability.
Sunflower lecithin is also a good source of essential fatty acids, which are important components of our diet. Essential fatty acids play a key role in many of our body’s functions, including cardiovascular health, brain function, and skin health. By taking a sunflower lecithin supplement, you can help to ensure that your body has enough of these essential fatty acids to support optimal health.
In addition to its benefits for the body, sunflower lecithin can also help to support healthy skin. Choline, which is a component of sunflower lecithin, has been shown to help improve the health of skin cells and support the production of collagen. Collagen is a protein that is important for skin health, as it helps to keep the skin firm and hydrated. By taking a sunflower lecithin supplement, you can help to support healthy skin and reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles.
Why this formula?
There are very few sources of non-soy based lecithin as it is typically sourced from soy. Most soy sources are from genetically modified (GM) crops, where as presently, there are no genetically modified crops of sunflowers.
NOW® Sunflower Lecithin has Phosphatidyl Choline, the most abundant phospholipid in the cell membrane. Although phosphatidylcholine phospholipids are present in almost all cells within the body, the highest concentrations may be found in the brain, heart, liver, and kidneys. NOW® Sunflower Lecithin also naturally abounds in Phosphatidyl Inositol, Phosphatidyl Ethanolamine, and essential fatty acids. Lecithin in the diet aids in emulsifying fats, enabling them to be dispersed in water; and as a choline-containing phospholipid, its choline is easily absorbed and utilized by the body.
How much do I really need?
Lecithin is usually dosed in the range of 500 – 2400mg per day and should be taken after a meal to help prevent any stomach upset.
