Sunflower Lecithin Health Benefits
Lekithos Sunflower Lecithin is a phospholipid based dietary supplement rich in Phosphatidylcholine (PC), Phosphatidylinositol (PI), Phosphatidylethanolamine (PE) and Omega-6 (Linoleic Acid), which are considered beneficial to the brain and nervous system*.
Sunflower lecithin has a favorable phospholipid profile over regular lecithin from soybeans*.
Phosphatidylcholine (PC) helps to process fats and to support cell membranes*. It is very high at birth, particularly in brain tissue, and declines over time as part of the normal aging process.
Consuming dietary supplements high in PC aid the natural level in the cells and help minimize the age-related decline*. Lekithos Sunflower Lecithin contains 210mg Phosphatidylcholine per serving.
Phosphatidylinositol (PI) is an important lipid abundant in brain tissue, and is present in all tissues and cell types. Phosphatidylinositol is usually the phospholipid with the smallest presence, however Lekithos Sunflower Lecithin has an equal amount of PC and PI. Lekithos Sunflower Lecithin contains 210mg Phosphatidylinositol per serving.
Phosphatidylethanolamine (PE) is usually the second most abundant phospholipid in animal and plant lipids, and is a key building block of membrane bilayers. It is found in nervous tissue such as the brain, nerves, neural tissue, and in the spinal cord. Lekithos Sunflower Lecithin contains 100mg Phosphatidylethanolamine per serving.
Linoleic Acid (LA) is an Omega-6 essential polyunsaturated fatty acid, which is abundant in many vegetable oils such as sunflower oil.
Linoleic Acid is vital to proper health and aids in wound healing*.
Lekithos Sunflower Lecithin contains 880mg Linoleic Acid per serving.
