    Hi everybody!
    In the past days I worked through RichvK´s Simlified Methylation Protocol and saw that he is recommending to take Lecithin or even better glycophospholipids.
    On the internet I just found statements on glycophospholipids published by companies selling the products - they´re saying that the intake of such substances could reduce fatigue up to 30-40%. Has anybody of you guys made any positive (or negative) experiences taking that stuff?

    I´m not sure whether I should try taking the glycophospholipids since they are so expensive.
    I am from Germany and just found a Lecithin granulate which is like 5 Euros and is consisting of phospholipids (23% phosphatidylcholin). Does Lecithin do the same for cell membranes as glycophospholipids? And would it be okay to take a granulate? (since RichvK was talking about taking softgel capsules)

    I am also eating of a lot of good fats, but I am not sure if they´re digested that well since I am having some gut issues...

    I´d be really happy about some tips or experiences :)

    Yours

    Nana

    On the advise of Radio, I started Nutricology's nt factor on Wed afternoon. Within 24 hours (four scoops) I felt a HUGE surge. Wow! I can't take the so called loading dose. It affects my sleep. I'm down to just 1and a half scoops a day. (3/4 dose). This is money well spent. To use a Freddd rating system: I give it four stars (I'm a hard marker) along with Paleo diet,Cold thermogenesis, mercury removal/chlelation. I'm putting resistant starch at three stars and Fredd's methylation at five stars. Of course this is the only Magic Pill of the of bunch , other than the potato starch. Four stars for a Magic Pill . Well worth it.

    shah78, that sounds pretty good :) I´d also like to try that glycophospholipids, but what keeps me off trying that producut is, like Little Bluestem said, that it is mixed with other elements. I´m already taking most of them and I don´t want to get too much... do you know if there´s a product just containing that lipids?

    @all, will it be the same if I took lecithin granulate? Or are there any major differences between the two?

    @shah78 , Me Sci, thanks for your posts! I googled NT factor before but found something totally different...I think I´ll order that product :)

    @Radio, I just read your thread and it seems really worth trying it :) But I am wondering if I can get the same results from taking lecithin granulate (it´s mainly consisting of phosphatidycholine)?!

    I just did some research again and lecithin doesn´t really seem to be an alternative...I´ve also looked up th NT factor product above and it has also Xylitol and maltodextrin in it which I´m unfortunately very sensitive to :( Is there any other product like this?
    Thanks a lot everybody for your help!

    Those other ingredients are in the chewable tablets but not the powder. Somehow I had managed to post the wrong link in a way that made it look like the right one! :confused:

    I have corrected it now, hopefully...
