Sunflower Lecithin Softgels

200 - 1200 mg ~3 month supply!

Certified Non-Genetically Modified

Certified Kosher & Vegetarian

97% - 98% Phospholipids

General Information:

Lecithin is a naturally occurring compound found in all cells in nature, plant and animal.  It plays a major role in almost all biological processes - including nerve transmission, breathing and energy production.  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 body are almost two-thirds 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. CAOH® Lecithin Softgels are derived entirely from Non-GMO sunflowers.

“Nervous (brain, nerves, and spinal chord) and circulatory (in the blood) lecithin is produced by the liver if the diet is adequate.  The trouble it that our diet is grossly deficient in phospholipids like that found in lecithin.  The phospholipids found in lecithin are needed by every cell in the body and are a key building block of our cell membranes; without it, they will harden and become brittle.  Lecithin also protects cells from oxidation.  Oxidation is a bad thing - it's what makes nails rust, plastic going from soft to hard, and causes skin wrinkles....  The way I describe this to my clients is that without lecithin, as we age, our brain and skin turns from a soft juicy plum to a hard dry prune.  This is also one of the mechanisms behind Alzheimer's - dehydration of the brain - but instead of water evaporation, it’s "evaporation" of phospholipids (Lecithin).

Dr. Johanna Budwig's Theory about Cholesterol, Lecithin and Flax Seed Oil

by Marcus Ettinger DC, BSc 

Cholesterol is dissolved and kept in solution as a flowing liquid when there are adequate amounts of phospholipids and specific essential fatty acids in the blood.

Cholesterol is a waxy substance with a melting point of roughly 300 Degrees Fahrenheit.  The high melting point and the sticky nature of cholesterol, allows the substance to deposit itself on our arterial walls, especially in the presence of arterial wall injury. 

When the phospholipids found in lecithin are present, the melting point of cholesterol drops to 180 degrees - still an insoluble substance.  However, when the essential fatty acids, linoleic acid (omega-6) and more importantly alpha-linolenic acid (omega-3) are present, in sufficient quantities, the melting point of cholesterol drops to 32 degrees, which is far below our normal body temperature.  Even in the presence of an arterial injury, cholesterol will have a more difficult time combining with fibrin and platelets on an injured arterial surface, because the combination of the phospholipids and essential fatty acids have made the cholesterol in the blood more fluid and less sticky.

Fibrin is a protein involved in the clotting of blood. Platelets are the cell fragments circulating in the blood that are involved in the cellular mechanisms of primary hemostasis leading to the formation of blood clots.

Important Note:

California Academy of Health recognizes the importance of lecithin and offers one of the industries purest and highest quality lecithin granules available.  Commercially lecithin is derived from soybeans.  A concern over Genetically Modified Organisms, soy beans being one of the number one GMO crops, has prompted California Academy of Health to offer a 100% non-GMO lecithin, one of the first of its kind.  California Academy of Health has a strict specification on heavy metal and microbial content.  The extraction process also necessitates careful monitoring of solvent residues, rancidity via peroxide values, moisture content, other impurities, and phospholipid content.  Our lecithin granules are 97 - 98% phospholipids compared to the 95% seen in other brands and with a taste that many of our customers have said they prefer over others.  A fresh pleasant taste is often a tell tale sign for purity.  Rest assured that California Academy of Health will continue to work to meet or exceed our already high standards.
