Lecithin is an essential fat present in body cells and is often added to medication and food products for the number of health benefits it provides which include supporting function and health of the brain and cell membranes, antioxidant properties and supporting liver function to assist with fat loss.
Sunflower lecithin can be used as an emulsifier in baking or added to smoothies, yoghurt or other foods.
For breastfeeding women who suffer from blocked/plugged ducts or recurrent episodes of mastitis are often advised by their midwife or lactation consultant to increase their intake of lecithin. Lecithin may help with blocked ducts by decreasing its viscosity (stickiness) of the breast milk by increasing the percentage of polyunsaturated fatty acids in the milk.
