Support your liver with these natural, high potency lecithin powder!
Lecithin is one of the most popular traditional food supplements sold in the UK and yet we seem to know so little about it.
What is lecithin?
Lecithin has been for many years, and still is today, one of the most popular food supplements offered in the health food market. The fact that lecithin is a is often unknown, let alone it’s important biological function as an emulsifier and mobiliser of fats in liver tissue, offering our bodies the opportunity to combine oil and water. This allows us to get the most out of the essential fatty acid sources of Omega-3, 6 & 9 oils. Maybe even more concerning, considering so much lecithin is sold in the UK each year, is the fact that so many consumers are totally unaware of what makes a good lecithin product.
The term lecithin is the common name used to describe a very special group of phospholipids, however, the key one of these is known as phosphatidyl choline, so when making a choice of which lecithin to purchase, consumers should always compare the levels of this all important active ingredient. Many of the products on offer may look like good value for money, with large bottles of lecithin at seemingly low prices, however, when you look closer at how much phosphatidyl choline they contain, it is often very low, 12% or less. Nutrigold Superlec Powder is one of the most potent natural lecithins on the market which on average delivers 30% phosphatidyl choline.
Non-bleached lecithin granules
It is important to note that many lecithin products are bleached to make them more consumer friendly, so they will not discolour with age and every batch will look the same for consumer compliance. However, at Nutrigold we believe this is a bad idea, as there may be possible issues with the increased levels of peroxides in the product, which we feel may not be a good idea when you are trying to support liver function. It is for this reason that we do not bleach our high phosphatidyl choline Superlec product. So please note that our product will change colour with age, this is a natural process that will not retard the effectiveness of this product below it's stated product shelf life.
