After reading a couple of threads about memory loss I did a search to see if lecithin has been discussed here. Not much since 2004, apparently, and not even very much then. One to two tablespoons of lecithin granules (NOT capsules) per day improves short-term memory by making better neurotransmitter connections. Studies were done with the elderly, but the supplement is recommended for anyone--even college students. When one of my relatives took a course to pass her bar exam, the instructor advised the class to start taking lecithin granules two weeks before the test for better information retention. Lecithin granules are relatively cheap, by the way.
