Lecithin Granules Description from Now
The word Lecithin is taken from the Greek Lekithos, which means "egg yolk". A fitting name for this essential nutrient, for the egg is considered a symbol of life, strength and fertility. Lecithin is important for all of these biological functions and more.

Our brain is approximately 30% Lecithin. The insulating myelin sheaths that protect the brain, spine and thousands of miles of nerves in your baody are almost two-thirds Lecithin. Even the heart has a high concentration of Lecithin. Lecithin is composed of many different components, including Choline, Inositol, Linoleic Acid, Phosphatidylserine, beneficial fatty acids and triglycerides. These valuable constituents of Lecithin are vital for the proper functioning of many metabolic processes. NOW Lecithin Granules are derived entirely from soybeans.

GREAT way to add healthy fats to your protein shakes, makes them MRPs

Here's a great and very inexpensive way to make your protein shakes a lot more nutritious and smooth at the same time. Lecithin, if you're not familiar with it, is a true 'superfood', a concentrated source of brain and heart-healthy fats with nothing else in there that's bad for you or which you don't want. It's 100% good stuff. Lecithin is virtually tasteless, and in the raw state has a nutty texture. In cooking (or the blender) it acts as an emulsifier, which gives protein shakes a nice creamy smooth consistency. Plus the extra fat will slow down digestion so your protein shake will hold you for a longer period of time. I always have room in my regimen for supplements like lecithin, that are inexpensive, easy to use and 100% nutritious. Keep this in the fridge and use it up once you open it. Great in shakes or mixed into yogurt.
