> One man's palatable is another man's YUCK. I made the unfortunate mistake of buying a large bottle of liquid lecithin and taking it by the tablespoons. Never again! Until my dying day, I plan to take my lecithin in a "down-the-hatch" capsule.
Ron, I just did the same, uhh, "experiment". Liquid lecithin is horrid stuff. You'll get no argument from me, there. I bought it because it was cheap (and so am I). Living in abject poverty for a few years because of my health issues has made me somewhat of a penny-pincher, but buying the liquid lecithin was a waste of money.
> Lar, you might be right about the tastiness of lecithin granules, but I'm not brave enough to try it given my experience with the liquid form of the delicacy. :-)
Two different animals. I have had both, and there is no comparison between them. Lecithin granules have a mild, perhaps slightly nutty, flavour. I literally eat them straight from the spoon. The only concern is that they can go rancid over time, but your nose is designed by nature to be sensitive to rancid fats. Rancid fats have a characteristic smell, ya know? Just check to see they're fresh before you buy it, and store it in the fridge.

Doing really well, thanks. I'm still somewhat astonished about that.....I just did a six week stretch of work, which included periods which exceeded my previous record rates of work as well. For example, an eleven day stretch on the road. Running out of hours in my log book a number of times.
When I got home off my last trip (15 hours, 1200 km, load/unload and customs on the last day, starting at 4 a.m.), I was a little tired. But one sleep, and I woke up feeling fine. That is unprecedented, when considering the recent years of my life.
I am laying all the credit for that amazing reversal in my chronic fatigue syndrome on NADH, which you suggested I try. I think I will always be grateful to you for that.
How are you doing, buddy?
