Super Lecithin is advertised to assist with four main health areas: high cholesterol, liver disease, gallstones (lumps or stones that develop in the gallbladder or bile duct), and cognitive function memory concentration.

The manufacturer, Thompson Nutrition Limited, is a company established in 1951 as New Zealand’s first health shop. Since then, the company has developed and successfully markets more than 100 products: digestive and food supplements, essential fatty acids, herbal formulas, multi-vitamins, minerals, and two exclusive lines of products designed for men and women-specific health conditions and needs.

Super Lecithin is part of the digestive and food supplement category. It is recommended to adults who wish to prevent or treat liver and gallbladder problems, cholesterol issues, or conditions related to nerve dysfunction and memory loss.


1) Super Lecithin at a Glance

Super Lecithin supplies high potency 1200 mg Soy Lecithin, providing less than 60% phosphatides with approximately 14% Phosphatidylcholine.

Lecithin generally refers to a phospholipid mixture of phosphatides, including Phosphatidylcholine, Phosphatidyl Inositol, Phosphatidylserine and Phosphatidylethanolamine and other substances such as fatty acids and carbohydrates.

It is found in vegetable and animal sources, such as beef liver, steak, eggs, peanuts, cauliflower, and oranges. Commercial production uses soybeans, egg yolk, or brain tissue as sources.

With assisting liver and cholesterol problems, lecithin seems to break down fat deposits and enhance cholesterol metabolism in the digestive system, thus keeping harmful substances in the bloodstream rather than accumulating on artery walls.

To lecithin’s cognitive protective properties, both Phosphatidylserine and Phosphatidylcholine have undergone serious clinical trials. Scientists concluded that Phosphatidylserine may reduce the risk of cognitive decline in the elderly.

In contrast, Phosphatidylcholine is believed to be a precursor for the neurotransmitter acetylcholine, involved in several cognitive functions such as memory and attention.

Super Lecithin is a low allergy formula free of corn, dairy, egg, gluten, lactose, shellfish, wheat, and yeast. This is also a vegetarian and vegan formulation and contains no artificial coloring, flavoring, or preservatives.


2) What Are Super Lecithin Ingredients?

Super Lecithin includes the following ingredients: Soy Lecithin 1.2g equivalent Phosphatidylcholine (153mg), equivalent Phosphatidyl Inositol (86mg), and coconut oil.

3) What Does Super Lecithin Do?

Super Lecithin represents a product that should supply 1200 mg of high potency Soy Lecithin, approximately 60% phosphatides with 14% Phosphatidylcholine Lecithin and combines a phospholipid mixture of phosphatides, such as Phosphatidylcholine with some carbohydrates. Commercial production utilizes egg yolk, soybeans, and brain tissue as sources.

As a component of this formula, lecithin seems to have proved reliable when it comes to breaking down a fat deposit and enhancing cholesterol metabolism within the digestive system, thus managing to keep harmful substances in the bloodstream, thus preventing them from accumulating on the walls of the arteries.

With the protective qualities of Lecithin, both Phosphatidylcholine and Phosphatidylserine have gone through clinical studies. The research concluded that Phosphatidylcholine is believed to be a precursor for acetylcholine, thus being involved in cognitive functions. In contrast, Phosphatidylserine may help reduce the risk of mental decline in elders.

Overall, Super Lecithin is advertised as free of dairy, gluten, lactose, selfish, corn, and wheat. It also comes in the form of vegetarian tablets, thus being suitable for every individual who desires to follow this treatment.

Final Thoughts

8) Final Thoughts on Super Lecithin

Super Lecithin includes soy extracted lecithin with a high content of Phosphatidylcholine and Phosphatidyl Inositol. Given the many research studies and clinical trials for both lecithin and its main components (Phosphatidylcholine, Phosphatidylserine, and Phosphatidyl Inositol), it is safe to say that the product is likely to work.

There are also consumer testimonials that validate Super Lecithin’s effectiveness and praise its fair price. However, the small number of such testimonials makes it impossible for us to generalize and conclude its actual level of effectiveness in all claimed benefit areas.

The formula proves to be an excellent alternative for people with allergies (it’s a low allergy formula) and vegans and vegetarians.

My brother used this for a while last summer, and that’s what convinced me to try, and I am very satisfied with the mental clarity it gave me.
