11 Lecithin - For the Brain

Lecithin is beneficial for the skin, digestive system, and more, but it is said that people who work mentally need much more of this compound than others, and they need more than can be found in food. Pharmacists recommend that lecithin supplements be taken prophylactically and regularly, to improve memory. This is especially important before tests or exam sessions, as it improves learning ability.
