Lecithin is a phospholipid composed of phosphatidyl esters (phosphatides), mainly consisting of
phosphatidylcholine, phosphatidylethanolamine, phosphatidylserine and phosphatidylinositol. Soybean lecithin
typically contains around 24% phosphatidylcholine, 22% phosphatidylethanolamine, and 19%
phosphatidylinositol. Lecithin also contains fatty acids, which are primarily omega-6 fatty acids and a small
amount of omega-3 fatty acids.
Phospholipids are the major component in the membranes of the brain. Membranes are the working surfaces
of every cell, carrying out the essential functions of cellular communication and hormonal signal transduction.
Nerve cells, in particular, depend on healthy membrane function for normal neurotransmitter metabolism and
nerve signal transmission. Choline, as a component of phosphatidylcholine, is used for synthesis and
maintenance of normal cell membranes. Taking lecithin orally may increase serum choline, a precursor to the
acetylcholine which supports memory.
In addition, lecithin can play a key role in the emulsification and mobilization of fats and cholesterol.
Lecithin has Generally Recognized as Safe (GRAS) status in the US.
