Lecithin

What is Lecithin?
Lecithin’s are oily substances that occur naturally in plants & animals (eg: soyabeans & egg yolks).

Some people use lecithin as a supplement because of its high choline content. Choline is a micronutrient that is good for heart health and brain development.

It also possesses emulsification properties ie; it keeps the ingredients smoothly blended together and prevents clumping.

Pro-Matrix uses the following lecithin’s:
*100% natural sunflower Lecithin: a NON GMO sunflower seed derivative
*100% natural soy Lecithin: a NON GMO soyabean derivative.

The general concerns with Lecithin & why this DOES NOT apply to Pro-Matrix:
The two major concerns with lecithin are:
1. Genetically modified
2. The extraction process uses chemicals

  1. Pro-Matrix uses 100% certified NON GMO soyabeans & sunflower seeds.
  2. Pro-Matrix uses only the most natural methods to extract our lecithin. 
We use a mechanical process to extract as well as a small amount of alcohol which completely evaporates.  We use absolutely NO HEXANE & OTHER NASTIES!

Why is Lecithin used in Pro-Matrix?
* Lecithin is added to Pro-Matrix for solubility
* It is less than 0.2% of the product.

Why does Pro-Matrix use only organic and natural ingredients?

  • Typically organic produce contains more vitamins, minerals, and phytonutrients than conventionally farmed produce.
  • Organic produce contains no nitrates, genetically modified materials or harmful chemical pesticides.
  • Organic produce is grown free of artificial fertilisers and pesticides.
  • Organic produce nurtures our planet’s soil and promotes sustainable and diverse flora and fauna.

Pro-Matrix will never compromise on ingredients for our customers.
