NOW Non-GMO Lecithin Softgels contain 15% Phosphatidyl Choline, which comprises a major portion of our brain and nervous system. Lecithin is also a source of essential fatty acids, Choline and Inositol. Lecithin aids in emulsifying fats, enabling them to be dispersed in water.
Lecithin is a naturally occurring compound found in all cells in nature, both plant and animal. It plays a major role in most biological processes - from breathing to energy production to nerve transmission. Your brain is approximately 30% lecithin!
When medical researchers use the term lecithin,ï¿½ they are referring to a purified substance called phosphatidylcholine (PC). Supplements labeled as "lecithin" usually contain 1020% PC. Relatively pure PC supplements are generally labeled as phosphatidylcholine.ï¿½ PC best duplicates supplements used in medical research.
PC acts as a supplier of choline, which is needed for cell membrane integrity and to facilitate the movement of fats in and out of cells. It is also a component of the neurotransmitter acetylcholine and is needed for normal brain functioning, particularly in infants. Although the human body can synthesize choline, additional amounts from the diet are considered essential under certain circumstances. For this reason, PC has been used in a number of preliminary studies for a wide variety of neurological and psychiatric disorders, though not every study suggests that supplemental choline is capable of reaching the brain. Choline participates in many functions involving cellular components called phospholipids.
