Sunflower Lecithin, good or bad? - gut health, inflammation

Oddly enough, we get many questions about sunflower lecithin and whether it’s good or bad.

Research indicates that excessive consumption of omega-6s (found in corn, safflower, sunflower, soy, and vegetable oils) can trigger pro-inflammatory chemicals. This might be why vegetable oils are often criticized.

But what about sunflower lecithin, particularly in the amounts used in supplements?

Our microbiome team, which researches IBD, SIBO, IBS, and autoimmune diseases, supports sunflower lecithin. Their findings and human studies suggest it helps with gut lining inflammation and is generally beneficial. Unless you have an allergy, sunflower lecithin is considered safe and effective for gut health.

This insight comes from microbiome researchers, so we trust their expertise. Our slides contain current third-party references.

We’re not promoting sunflower lecithin. If you dislike it, that’s fine. We're simply sharing what our science team and current research reveal about sunflower lecithin.

We hope this information helps.
