IN A NUTSHELL: THE BEST VALUE FOR SUPPLEMENT GRADE LECITHIN

High quality Lecithin is constituted of 10-20% phosphatidyl choline [called PC]. This Swanson brand Lecithin Granules has 1.5 grams of PC per tablespoon, which is 6.5 grams. That means it has almost 23% PCs by weight which is very high and desirable.

SO WHAT ARE LECITHIN GRANULES GOOD FOR ANYWAY?

First, here's SWANSON's claims, "Add nutrition and flavor to your favorite foods with our Lecithin Granules. A great natural fat-emulsifier for healthy lipid balance and cardiovascular maintenance, lecithin is also an excellent source of phospholipids that play vital roles in brain and liver function."

Bear in mind the aforementioned claims by Swanson are probably true for the most part, but one needs to remember that they are promotional remarks used to sell a product.

HERE'S WHAT OBJECTIVE RESEARCH SUGGESTS:

According to recent scientific research Lecithin supplementation is Strongly Indicated for the following conditions and ailments;

-----*- High homocysteine [CARDIO-PROTECTIVE]
-----*- Liver cirrhosis
-----*- Prevention of Neural tube defects
-----*- Tardive dyskinesia

According to anecdotal evidence Lecithin Granules have been cited as helpful in the control or treatment of the following conditions and ailments;

-----*- Alzheimer's disease
-----*- Bipolar disorder
-----*- Gallbladder attacks
-----*- Hepatitis
-----*- High cholesterol

SO WHAT DOES IT DO IN THE HUMAN BODY? [source - HEALTHNOTES 2006]

"PC" functions as a supplier of choline, which is required for cell membrane integrity and to facilitate the movement of fats in and out of our cells.

I have used Swanson products for years now. Some supplements work for me, while others had no effect that I could measure. The lecithin tastes great in my morning oatmeal. My opinion, is that it has been a useful aid in lowering my bad choleterol and assisting with the maintenance of my blood glucose levels (I am diabetic). It, along with their Siliphos capsules (a more bioavailable form of milk thistle) have been useful in the maintenance of my liver. It was inflammed and now my doctor wonders how the enzymes have returned so quickly to normal.

UPDATE 3/12/12 - I still use this and love it. I put it on cold and hot cereal and in yogurt. It would be great in a smoothie but I'm not big on smoothies so I use it on stuff I do eat. I've put it in baked goods and liked the results.

This is my first time using Swanson products, and first time using Lecithin Granules. What can I say? I like it. The taste is great, very light, almost like a buttery vanilla. It's easily added to anything, my favorite is in my morning oatmeal. I know it's working because I used to get light headaches from using the nootropics Oxiracetam and Piracetam (which improve the metabolism of the neurotransmitter Acetylcholine in the brain and improve blood flow and oxygen to the brain)without a recommended Choline supplement and those absolutely went away once I supplemented the Choline my brain needed.

I can't say what effect it has had on cholesterol because that's not why I use it, although that is one of the claims to fame this product has.
As for concentration and memory - from my experience it's been very helpful, but then again I use it with the aforementioned nootropics and they work in synergy with Lecithin (choline)to subtly improve overall cognition and memory.

As for the the whole purchasing transaction via Amazon, well, it couldn't have gone better, even though the product shipped from Swanson, it arrived super fast and nicely packed - will definitely be purchasing this again once my supply runs out.

I was following the Eat Right for your Blood type diet and found a recipe for 8 oz of cold pineapple juice, one tbs of flax seed oil,and one tbls of these granules mixed in the morning with breakfast. It emulsifies easily and is easy to digest. It is refreshing every morning. The product was packed well and came quickly. I can recommend the service via Amazon for getting it here as a product that worked.

I've used this brand for some time now and as far as I am concernd this is the best one for the price and I like how I feel when taking this product. You need to use it for a few weeks before you will see any benifits.
Excelent product and the price is excellent as well.
