Lecithin is really good for a lot of things especially those that got something something to do with circulation. This is what I found out more on lecithin:
"Lecithin is a type of fat called a phospholipid, consisting mostly of various saturated and unsaturated fatty acids, phosphoric acid, and choline. It is found in the cell membranes of all living things, and because it is present in both animal and plant tissue, it is easy to find sources of lecithin in food. Some of the best sources of lecithin in food are egg yolks, liver, peanuts, whole grains, milk, and soybeans. Lecithin is also often used as a food additive in processed goods, like ice creams and salad dressings. This kind of lecithin, sometimes called commercial lecithin, is commonly derived from soybeans.
Lecithin is not only available in food, but is also produced by the human body itself. It is present in the bile made by the liver, which helps metabolize fats. Usually, there is no need to take lecithin supplements because the lecithin made by the body and the natural lecithin in food provide enough for human health. There is no officially recommended daily intake for lecithin, though some dietary studies recommend a dose of 550 mg per day for men and 425 mg per day for women. Too much lecithin can lead to nausea, bloating, and diarrhea."
I think lecithin really got an important role to play for our overall health.

This makes me think of my days promoting Amway products. They have a product called Lecithin-E. I have forgotten what it's supposed to be good for until I read this post. I am not into pills of any kind nowadays. I just take what I need the natural way, while I still can.

Nice to read those foods that are sources of lecithin falls in my category of "favorite foods".
I had never tried lecithin capsules since I prefer getting the nutrients I need from food sources. And since I usually include foods that are good sources of it in my daily consumption, I would just continue consuming those foods but definitely moderation should be there.
Lecithin and I go way back. My mom made me drink it every day afterschool when I was in the 8th grade. I was trying to lose weight before going to high school in the fall and she would make me these horrible tasting, clumpy drinks that consistend of lecithin and orange juice. It was the worst thing I ever drank in my life and I hope I never have to drink one of thoes shakes ever again in my entire life.
