  4. Supports Skin Health
  5. Boosts Brain Function
  6. Safer Than Other Sources of Lecithin

1. Reduces Cholesterol Levels

One of the most notable sunflower lecithin benefits for men and women alike is its positive effects on heart health and its ability to help lower cholesterollevels. Studies show that supplementing with lecithin can cut total cholesterol levels by up to 42 percent and slash levels of “bad” LDL cholesterol by over 56 percent after just two months.

Plus, some research suggests that lecithin can also bump up levels of beneficial HDL cholesterol, which can help keep the bloodstream clear by removing the buildup of fatty plaque from the arteries.

2. Improves Digestive Health

Sunflower lecithin may be especially beneficial for those with digestive conditions, such as ulcerative colitis, Crohn’s disease or irritable bowel syndrome. This is because about 70 percent of the total phospholipids in the intestinal mucus layer are made up of lecithin, helping form a protective barrier to prevent the invasion of harmful bacteria.

According to a study published in Digestive Diseases, the mucus content of this phospholipid barrier is decreased by about 70 percent in those with ulcerative colitis, potentially opening the door to dangerous microbes and increasing the risk of intestinal inflammation. Although research is still limited, this suggests that supplementation with sunflower lecithin may have a therapeutic effect on digestive health for those who suffer from these conditions.

3. Aids Breastfeeding

Clogged milk ducts are a common yet frustrating problem for women who breastfeed. Characterized by symptoms like redness, tenderness and swelling, clogged milk ducts can be painful and challenging to resolve. Worst of all, clogged ducts can potentially lead to mastitis if proper precautions aren’t taken.

Many experts recommend sunflower lecithin for women who experience recurrent, painful blocked milk ducts. While proper care is absolutely essential to help treat a current clogged duct, lecithin can help reduce the viscosity of breast milk, making it less likely to happen again in the future.

4. Supports Skin Health

Flip over just about any of your favorite skin care products and you may just spot some form of lecithin on the list of ingredients. Lecithin is especially effective at relieving irritated and dry skin. It also has emollient properties that can keep skin feeling soft.

When combined with a range of other skin-soothing ingredients and applied topically, lecithin has been shown to aid in the treatment of conditions like eczema and atopic dermatitis. However, more research is needed to determine how lecithin in supplement form may impact overall skin health.

5. Boosts Brain Function

Sunflower lecithin is a great source of choline, an essential nutrient that is necessary for several different aspects of health. Choline is especially important when it comes to brain health because it’s the precursor to acetylcholine, a neurotransmitter involved in learning and memory.

Interestingly enough, one study published in the American Journal of Clinical Nutrition actually found that a higher intake of choline was linked to improved cognitive function. Another study conducted by the Clinical Research Center at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology showed that choline supplementation helped improve memory function in older adults with poor memory.

6. Safer Than Other Sources of Lecithin

Compared to other forms of lecithin derived from soy or corn, sunflower lecithin is your best bet if you’re looking to minimize your intake of ingredients that have been genetically modified. This is because, unlike other sources of lecithin, sunflower seeds are never genetically modified. Sunflower seeds may also be preferable over other types of lecithin because the extraction process doesn’t require the use of harsh and potentially harmful chemicals, unlike lecithin produced from soy or egg yolks.
