In recent years lecithin has become increasingly popular as a food supplement. Lecithin is the common name that describes a naturally-occurring mixture of phospholipids. The phospholipids contain essential fatty acids (Omega 3 and 6), phosphorus, choline, inositol and glycerol. Lecithin is present in every cell in the human body in the form of cell membranes.
For example, phospholipids comprise 80% of the myelin sheaths that function as membranes for nerve cells. Phospholec contains a natural blend of phospholipids (phosphatidyl choline, phosphatidyl ethanolamine, phosphatidyl inositol) supported by linolenic (omega 3) and linoleic (omega 6) fatty acids. In particular, the phosphatidyl choline level (30%-35%) makes it one of the most potent and cost-effective lecithins on the market.
