Lecithin 1200mg - 200 (2x100) soft gels

What is Lecithin supplement and how does it work?

Lecithin was first isolated in 1846 by the French chemist and pharmacist Theodore Gobley.  In 1850 he named the phosphatidylcholine "L�chithine". Gobley originally isolated lecithin from egg yolkラλέκιθος (lekithos) is 'egg yolk' in ancient Greekラand established the complete chemical formula of phosphatidylcholine in 1874; in-between he had demonstrated the presence of lecithin in a variety of biological matters including venous blood, bile, human brain tissue, fish eggs, fish roe, chicken and sheep brain.

A proven benefit and suggested use for lecithin is for those taking Niacin to treat high cholesterol. Niacin treatment can deplete choline, necessitating an increased amount of lecithin or choline in the diet.

Lecithin produces the neurotransmitter acetylcholine which enables communication and signal-transmission between brain cells. Alzheimer's disease can be caused by a change in production of acetylcholine. Many speculate that an increase in lecithin will prompt brain cells to produce more acetylcholine, thus improving memory. Lecithin and choline have been tested to do this. In most of these studies, a portion of subjects improved markedly, while others were not helped at all. (Zeisel, 334)

Lecithin administration can be beneficial for people with tardive dyskinesia (a neurological disorder).
