I've seen a few threads, especially over at Avant, that speak toward the benefit of supplementing with lecithin... I was just wondering if anyone does and what your experience and dosage was? Also did you use the caps, liquid, or granules?... if you used the granules were they just in your protein shake or what kind of creative ways did you take it?

I bought some of the granuals. I put them in my protein shake.
I didn't really notice anything from them.
I think I found some on sale at GNC.
You got a link for articles on Avant?

Sure... the first one is actually the Sesalean writeup - towards the middle-bottom is a little blurb on lecithin
The more interesting thread was started by Loki and his use of megadosed lecithin for a refeed

I use it for it's health benefits. It also has a lot of phosphatidyl choline for a fraction of the price when you buy actual phophatidyl choline.

The lecithin granules are a good cheap healthy product. They especially work well for emulsifying any fatty acid type product you are taking.
They aren't toxic, but I don't recommend "mega dosing" because they have quite a bit of phosphorus and you wouldn't want too much phosphate all at once.

What would you consider the max dosage to avoid too much phosphate... and what are the effects/sides of excess phosphate?Originally Posted by Phosphate bond

I use 2tbls a day for choline source and any other nutrients found in the granules. I really like it, but as for noticeable effects....I don't get headaches from piracetam.

i'm currently using softgel tabs. i take one pill during breakfast, lunch, and dinner. it all adds up to be 3600mgs Soy Lecithin or 2196 mg of phosphatides. not too sure if this helps but here's my 2cents..

Tryed them long ago in shakes makes them pretty smooth I think its an emulsifier. Quit using it because choline is available cheaper. Its basically just choline for the most part. Some people like the flavor,I think it can throw off your mineral balances.

I add granules to my shakes, I got the NOW foods stuff, it was cheap. I read about in the arnold encyclopedia, so I tried it.

My mom used to give this stuff in gel caps when I was a kid. I swear it took me from a C student to an A student one year....top of my class. My son is saying he is having trouble concentrating on homework....gonna try it for him.
