Lecithin (from the Greek Lekithos, which means "egg yolk," but these two formulations are actually vegetarian/vegan) is a naturally occurring compound found in all cells in nature and has many functions in our bodies. For those seeking an alternative to soy, these two types are derived entirely from non-GMO (non-genetically modified) Sunflowers, and are available either in liquid or powder form or in convenient softgels.
Lecithin plays a major role in almost all our biological processes - including liver function, nerve transmission, breathing and energy production - and makes up about 30% of our brains. (The insulating myelin sheaths that protect the brain, spine and thousands of miles of nerves in your body are almost two-thirds Lecithin.) Lecithin itself is composed of many different components, including Choline, Inositol, Linoleic Acid, Phosphatidylserine, beneficial fatty acids and triglycerides, which are vital for the proper functioning of many metabolic processes, and can help support liver function.
