Product details

Lecithin is one of the richest natural sources of Choline and Insitol. Lecithin is an important nutrient when it comes to maintaining healthy brain function. Choline is transformed into Acetycholine, a brain chemical vital for the transmission of messages between the brain cells. Lecithin is a fat like substance called a phospholipid. It is produced daily by the liver if the diet is adequate. It is needed by every cell in the body and is a key building block of cell membranes; without it, they would harden. Lecithin protects cells from oxidation and largely comprises the protective sheaths surrounding the brain. Lecithin is composed mostly of B Vitamins, Phosphoric Acid, Choline, Linoleic Acid and Inositol. Although it is a fatty substance, it is also a fat emulsifier. These Lecithin Granules are of the highest quality, containing no additives. They are guaranteed to be produced from non-GM soya beans grown from certified IP (Identity Preserved) seeds and are tested for absence of genetically modified DNA.

Pack size: 500g

Sprinkle three teaspoons (10.5g) of Lecithin Granules daily onto cereal or add to soups or hot drinks; the flavour will not be impaired.  Alternatively, it is delicious directly from the spoon.
