What is lecithin?
Lecithin is a fatty substance that is found naturally in all cells of the body. The substance is involved in the body's transport of fat, and therefore participates in the emulsification of cholesterol in the blood and fat storage in the liver. In addition, lecithin is thought to play a role in brain function, as the substance forms part of the brain. Among other things, lecithin has been raised in studies on memory and cognition in the elderly with dementia or Alzheimer's (1). However, more studies are needed to be able to draw conclusions.
Lecithin as a supplement is often extracted from soybeans, rapeseed or sunflower seeds. Healthwell's lecithin powder is extracted from sunflower seeds, which is an allergen-free alternative to the soy-based lecithin powder. To have a long-term effect, the supplement should be taken regularly.
How is Healthwell Lecithin Powder dosed?
Healthwell Lecithin Powder is easy to dose. Mix about 1 tablespoon (15ml/10 g) in any food or drink once a day. There is no evidence that lecithin is dangerous in excessive amounts, but we recommend following the dosage recommendation to avoid any possible side effects.
