Liquid sunflower seed lecithin contains a high level of choline, which breaks up cholesterol in the body and is vital for the proper functioning of the brain. Sunflower lecithin is useful in maintaining normal cholesterol levels as part of a low cholesterol diet and is also a rich source of phosphatidylcholine for the prevention of gallstones. Its high levels of choline are also necessary for healthy liver function. Sunflower lecithin is great when added to smoothies, soups, and sauces. It also is very useful as a thickening agent. NOTE: Blue Mountain Organics (TM) does not manufacture the lecithin.
FUN FACT! Sunflowers are one of the fastest growing plants. They can grow 8 to 12 feet tall in rich soil within six months. The scientific name of sunflowers is Helianthus, Helia for sun and Anthus for flower.
