Soy lecithin may help women reduce fatigue, improve energy and mood

Daily or weekly fatigue often accompanies menopause. Soy lecithin and egg yolk contain phospholipids—compounds that can repair damaged cell membranes.

In this study, 89 menopausal women complaining of fatigue took 600 mg or 1,200 mg of soy lecithin per day, or a placebo. After eight weeks, while there were no changes for placebo, and only slight improvement in the low-dose lecithin group, those in the high-dose lecithin group reported much less fatigue, and showed greater improvement in major aspects of energy and mood including tension, depression, anger, vigor, fatigue, and confusion.
