Found in high concentration in the brain, phosphatidylserine plays a key role in neuronal energy production and communication as a key structural component of the cell membrane. Phosphatidylserine plays a key role in cell to cell communication in the brain, including the transfer of biochemical messages into the cell, triggering cellular responses. The proper functioning of these processes are especially important to the nervous system and to healthy cognitive function. Phosphatidylserine has also been shown to support aspects of cell metabolism, such as glucose utilization and enhanced neurotransmitter formation. Furthermore, it appears to have antioxidant activity, protecting the brain from free radicals. Since very little phosphatidylserine is found in food, the compound must be synthesized or supplemented to provide what is needed for optimal brain health.
Each soft gel provides 100 mg of purified, high-concentration phosphatidylserine sourced from sunflower oil, making it easy to achieve therapeutic dosing.
Suggested Use: 1 soft gel capsule three times per day or as recommended by your health care professional.
Cognitive Health – Studies of oral supplements of phosphatidylserine (PS) have shown it to affect neuronal membranes and cell metabolism, as well as the acetylcholine, norepinephrine, serotonin and dopamine neurotransmitter systems. A body of research has highlighted improvements in cognitive function and memory following supplementation with PS. PS supplementation has also been shown to improve short-term auditory memory, inattention and impulsivity in children.
Endocrine Health and Stress Resilience – PS has also shown promise in modulating stress-related fatigue. PS has also been found to reduce the cortisol response to overtraining, resulting in a reduction in muscle soreness and improved athletic performance.
