Supercharge Your Health with Sunflower Superpowers


How it’s made:

Sunflower Lecithin is made by dehydrating a sunflower and separating it into three parts: oil, gum, and solids. Lecithin comes from the gum. It is processed through a cold press system like the one used to make olive oil. At AKAI LIFE we utilize the highest quality liquid form of Organic Sunflower Lecithin in our product formulations.


 Fun facts:

The word ‘Lecithin’ finds its roots in the Greek word ‘Lekithos’ which means egg yolk. This word is now used when referring to the yellowish fatty substance found naturally in animal fat and plant tissue.

Does your body make Lecithin? Yes!

Lecithin in itself is a vital substance produced naturally by the body’s major organs such as the liver, kidney, and heart. It prevents the membranes of our cells from becoming hard.Even though our body produces lecithin, supplementing with Sunflower Lecithin can boost its effects.


Why we use this superstar ingredient:

Because your health matters, AKAI Body Balance Capsules & Nourishing Oil Drops Tincture are made with Organic Sunflower Lecithin (even though it’s more expensive than commonly used soy lecithin).

Sunflower Power List of Health Benefits:

Greater Bioavailability:

Organic Sunflower Lecithin has numerous health benefits, but one highlighted superpower is its miraculous ability to increase bioavailability. Bioavailability is the measurement of a supplement or other substance that is absorbed by the body, giving the substance its ability for active effectiveness. Generally speaking, most supplements available in the market have very low bioavailability, therefore having only minimal effectiveness. At AKAI LIFE our manufacturing process increases the absorption and provides greater effectiveness.


We formulate our products for increased bioavailability through liposomes found in Organic Sunflower Lecithin and utilize Delayed Release Capsules (more about delayed release capsules in our next newsflash). Liposomes (microscopic fat balls) can hide CBD, a more poorly absorbed nutrient, inside, much like a Trojan horse. These fat balls are made from phospholipids which are virtually identical to the phospholipids that make up the cell membranes in our body and are therefore more easily absorbed.


Strengthens Your Nervous System:

Fatty acids present in Sunflower Lecithin help in maintaining the myelin sheath so that nerve impulses can efficiently travel to the brain.

Reduces Stress:

Lecithin has been shown to dramatically reduce stress levels!


Supports a Healthy Heart:

Sunflower Lecithin contains linoleic acid which emulsifies and breaks down fats, even those in the bloodstream! Adding even the smallest amount of sunflower lecithin into your diet can help decrease your cholesterol levels.


Acts as An Antioxidant:

Antioxidants play a key role in keeping us healthy, and Sunflower Lecithin contains phosphatidylcholine, one of the most powerful antioxidants. These antioxidants play a key role in preventing damage due to oxidative stress. Oxidative stress can cause a number of illnesses such as cancer and heart diseases, as well as contribute to premature aging both externally and internally.


Promotes Bone & Joint Health:

The fatty acids present in Sunflower Lecithin are rich in choline which is used by almost every cell in the body and is a key component of the cell membrane. These fatty acids also help rebuild and protect bone tissue. According to the Lipids in Health and Disease Journal, lecithin is a part of the viscous fluid that lubricates the joints for fluid movements.''
