Amazing stuff. Wish I was prescribed this on the NHS decades ago (sigh). Better late than never though. This cut my anxiety by 75% just 3 days after starting (started on two teaspoons a day, moved up to 2 tablespoons a day in around one week). It lasts a long time too. Only needed to take it twice a day.
You can also use this to make CBD oil become twice as strong, because the lecithin makes the CBD oil become water soluble, so more is absorbed by the body (Dutch Natural Healing brand is among the cheapest, and yet surprisingly good quality. 800mg/10ml for around £20/bottle if you buy 10 at once and ask for a discount code).
I also mix my flaxseed or hemp seed oil with this liquid lecithin to help absorption.
It does vary quite a lot in how well it mixes with the water. I'm still mystified as to why.
Taste is not very nice at first. Not unbearable though. Consistency is similar to molasses, very thick/syrupy before you mix it with water (you don't have to, but I prefer it that way). You can taste the sunflower seeds quite strongly though, so you know it's made from sunflowers and not soya.
After about a week, I began to associate the taste with a big reduction in anxiety, so now I quite like the taste (Pavlov's dogs effect?).
I forgot to order more in time and had to buy some soya lecithin granules from a local health food store (couldn't find sunflower lecithin anywhere, not even in London). The soya lecithin doesn't feel good in my tummy like this sunflower one does. It feels a bit bad, instead of soothing and good.
Definitely going to stock up on this. Btw, you can get lecithin from food, but you would need to eat 5 good quality, free range/pastured eggs a day to get enough. Or over 1kg of broccoli. Or some beef liver (not very popular in the West these days). We also need more during times of stress, physical endurance (M.E!), pregnancy, alcoholism or old age. No wonder most of us are deficient.
Thanks Dr M for adding this to your site. I had not stumbled upon it elsewhere, but when I saw it here, I knew it was worth looking into :)
