Sunflower Lecithin 1200mg #200 Soft Gels
Phosphatidylcholine, or PC, is a polar lipid molecule that is a naturally occurring, integral component of the cellular membrane, adding fluidity and strength to cells. PC serves as a source of choline, an important nutrient for liver function and a precursor of the neurotransmitter acetylcholine. Dietary sources of PC include sunflower lecithin.
Phosphatidylcholine has been studied in the context of cognitive support and moderating stress. A long-term double blind placebo-controlled trial suggested that high dose lecithin may reduce mild memory loss associated with aging. A more recent animal study provided data indicating that oral lecithin supplementation helped support plasma choline levels, which was linked to an adaptogenic effect when the animals were exposed to various stresses.
What is the Source?
Phosphatidylcholine is derived from sunflower oil, a source that is rich in polyunsaturated fatty acids, as opposed to animal-derived sources, which tend to be much higher in saturated fatty acids.
