Nature’s Sunshine Lecithin is a product designed to support digestion, the nervous system and proper cell membrane structure. Lecithin itself is a substance similar to fat known as a phospholid. It is naturally produced by the liver, if the body is receiving proper nutrition.
It is necessary for the construction and maintenance of cells and the flexibility of the cell membrane. It serves as an antioxidant by protecting against the effects of oxidation. It also serves as a protective barrier for the nerves and brain.
Lecithin contains phosphoric acid, choline, linoleic acid, inositol and various B vitamins. It is not a fat, but rather a substance that is similar to fat. It actually emulsifies fat. Emulsifiers are important to the circulatory and digestive systems. The other ingredients in this formula play their own parts in supporting the brain and nervous system.
For example, choline helps create acetylcholine which is a vital neurotransmitter in the brain. The lecithin in this formula comes from soybeans and is sealed hermetically for maximum potency and freshness.
