Phosphatidylserine (PS-100) is a phospholipid vital to the brain cell structure and function. Phospholipids are molecules present in all the cell membranes in our body.
The external membrane of the cells in the brain is formed by a double layer of phospholipids that includes (PS). This double layer is responsible for the exchange of nutrients and waste, bringing nutrients in and discharging waste, and also facilitates coordination of brain cells with the rest of the body. PS plays an important role in the neurotransmitter systems, neurotransmitter production and release, maintaining nerve connections in the brain. These functions and the degeneration of PS with age seem to be related to the decline of such functions.
Several studies suggest that PS is of benefit to maintain and improve cognitive functions such as memory and learning in mature adults. It is considered a good support for memory, learning, and emotional well-being, especially for people over 50 years of age or people suffering from premature damaged brain cells due to different ailments. It shows to be very effective in epilepsy if supplemented on a daily basis, in support of conventional treatment. It also reduces cortisol, the body’s main stress hormone.
PS-100 should be taken as recommended by a Health Care Professional.
