Lecithin is a fat essential in the cells of the body. It can be found in many foods, including soybeans and egg yolks. It attracts both water and fatty substances (hydrophilic and lipophilic) and is used for emulsifying, homogenizing liquid mixtures, promoting fat decomposition, preventing fat accumulation, protecting cranial nerves, cardiovascular, urinary, and gastrointestinal system. One of the main components of lecithin, phosphatidylcholine (PC), may be responsible for some of lecithin's reported health benefits. Because the body uses phosphatidylcholine to make a brain chemical called acetylcholine, it can be used for treating "brain-centered" conditions such as memory loss, Alzheimer’s disease, and aging brain. Lecithin is considered to be natural nootropics which stimulates brain cells to boost logical reasoning and memory function; it is suitable for school-age children and elders.
Phosphatidylserine (PS) is a member of the membrane phospholipids that is especially abundant in the brain. Because of its presence in the brain, effects of PS on the central nervous system have been widely investigated. Only about 5 grams of PS can be obtained from 1000kg of soybeans, PS helps to regulate neurotransmission and maintain intellectual development.
Curcumin is the active ingredient used in the traditional Indian medical herbal remedy and dietary spice turmeric (Curcuma longa). It has a surprisingly wide range of beneficial properties, including anti-inflammatory, antioxidant, and nerve system protection.
