Lecithin is a phospholipid -- a compound made of fats and water-soluble chemicals -- that is produced in the human liver and found in the brain. It's also found in soybeans, egg yolks and beef. Lecithin helps break down cholesterol in the blood and is added to cosmetics and such processed foods as ice cream and salad dressing to prevent ingredients from separating. It's a good source of choline, an essential nutrient that plays a role in brain development.
