Lecithin is more commonly found in a soy version; sunflower lecithin is the better form.

I was taking 4/day for a couple weeks and now 1 capsule/day to manage a rather large galactocele (milk breast cyst). Lecithin is thought to reduce the stickiness of breastmilk. This could be helpful for nursing mothers who experience blocked milk ducts, mastitis, and galactoceles.

As an exclusive pumper (meaning that my babies didn't latch, so I have to pump without ever nursing directly), reducing the amount of time I'm on the pump or the number of clogs I experience is very important. This stuff does the trick! I didn't think it would work, but I was desperate after getting a massive clog that I couldn't get to release after five days of trying. I started taking this and it went away immediately. I kept taking it and I emptied completely every time, which helped boost my supply a couple of ounces. I ran out and BAM another clog. Waiting on my next shipment, so I can keep this up. I've been pumping for my twins for nineteen months now and this stuff is going to help me make my two year goal!

I am allergic to soy, which has been the only source of lecithin. Lecithin is a critical factor for memory and brain function. I am happy to have a anon-soy lecithin!

I had a MASSIVE (the size of my fist) clogged milk duct (possibly a galactocele judging by the size and the fact that it was rock hard and not painful)for about 4 days when I got my shipment. As soon as I got it, I took 2 pills, waited about an hour, then took a hot shower then got to pumping. I got twice as much milk as I had been getting the past few days, and the lump was gone! I had tried everything! From hot compresses, massage, nursing on all fours with babies chin pointed toward the lump, and nothing worked. I absolutely believe this is what did it for me. Highly recommend!

One of the few vitamins that I've taken that actually worked well in a short amount of time. Would recommend to anyone that is having brain fog problems.

I breastfeed my son who is now almost 9 months old and sometimes I can't believe I made it this far given the fact that I used to have plugged milk ducts, blebs, etc. I finally found Sunflower Lecithin (Now brand) through another mom who had the same problem and she swore it handled her plugged ducts so that she never got them anymore. I was doubtful but also hopeful. Well, I can say that now that I credit this supplement with my ability to continue breastfeeding after I almost gave up at 3 months! I have to be sure to take it religiously or I clog again, but I don't mind because it's a small price to pay to be able to keep breastfeeding. It's been especially helpful in my transition back to work as I pump when I'm there and pumping used to just not be an option at all before I found this product, and it permits me to keep giving him breast milk even though I'm working. I'm not even sure what other uses it has haha, but to be honest, it has been a LIFESAVER with breastfeeding. It changes the consistency (not quality) of the breastmilk so that it just can't clog and I would highly, highly, highly recommend this to any breastfeeding momma! Even if you don't clog, you should have this on hand in case you ever do in the future because it can handle clogs LONG before they turn into mastitis. Okay I'm rambling now. But I seriously love this product and what it has enabled my son and I to keep doing and I am SO thankful it exists and for the mom who told me about it.

I am in my 60's, and I am a big guy weighing almost 400 lbs. My ankles and knees were really hurting 5 years ago. A gal at work suggested that I start taking lecithin because it is good for healing bones & joints. Back then I bought a supply lecithin. I started taking a single 1200 mg capsule each day. Within two to three weeks, 85% of my pain was gone. I was amazed at the results. Since I felt so good, I decided to take a capsule every morning and evening. Two capsules a day did not improve my health. Worse, I started sweating lecithin and wrecked several light blue work shirts stained with the lecithin oil.... I now only take one a day...

I have recommended it to friends who have Rheumatoid arthritis in their hips and other joints with similar results. This WILL NOT help nerve damage issues and probably doesn't cure Rheumatoid arthritis. But it is a great way to reduce pain from inflammation of joints.

Regards,

I was getting clogged milk ducts (I exclusively pump) and I don't get them nearly as often! I recommend it.

I started taking these after my lactation consultant suggested it after months of milk blisters from breastfeeding. Within the first week of taking them it almost felt like the extra "gunk" was building up, then I had the worst milk blisters I had ever had, then they were gone (I apply organic coconut at each feeding and they go away within 3 days), and I haven't had any since! It's been about a month and a half since I started taking lecithin and they really seem to help!

5 Stars to NOW Sunflower Lecithin. I am sensitive to certain types of Soy and try to avoid most types, especially when I'm not familiar with the Soy product. I plan on using the Sunflower Lecithin in a margarine recipe and appreciate that NOW creates a Lecithin product based off Sunflower rather than Soy which is nearly all I can find in my local grocery stores.

A fair warning: The pills are rather large. I got out my tape measure and it's exactly 1 inch in length so take with plenty of water and the serving size is 3 softgels! The Other Ingredients listed is: Softgel Capsul (gelatin, glycerin, water).

Serving Size: 3 Softgels = 30 Calories, 20 Calories from Fat, 2g Total Fat, 0g Saturated Fat, 0g Trans Fat, 2g Polyunsaturated Fat and 3.6g (3,6000 MG) of Sunflower Lecithin.

I give NOW Sunflower Lecithin 5 Stars but since this particular item is shipped by Nutricity currently (1/3/2013) I felt it was only fair to warn others about my experience as they may not check the Seller profile while purchasing. I will avoid the company Nutricity and seek another company to find this product from now on.

Here is why: I ordered this item on Dec 21, 2012 and the seller did NOT ship until Dec 28, 2012 which was one day AFTER I emailed seller asking WHY it has not been shipped. Seller did NOT respond to my email until Jan 2, 2013 with NO info as to WHY it took so long to ship. The Seller also provided an INVALID USPS tracking number (NEVER WORKED).

When I received the package it was NOT mailed by USPS instead it was mailed by DHL Global Mail but the tracking number doesn't work with DHL Global Mail either ( Little good it does me AFTER I've received it).
