Phosphatidyl Serine Complex

500 mg. Softgels


PS or Phosphatidyl Serine, is also referred to as the Essential Brain Nutrient! Phosphatidylserine is a phospholipid that is found in virtually every cell of our bodies, but is most highly concentrated in the walls or membranes of brain cells, that have been shown to make up about 70% of its nerve tissue mass. There it aids in the storage, release and activity of many vital neurotransmitters and their receptors. Phosphatidylserine also aids in cell-to-cell communication. PS is a must have for the maintaining of healthy cognitive functioning over the course of our lives.*

PS - Phosphatidyl Serine is the single most important building block nutrient for healthy, alive, active and functional brain cells.

  • PS supports & protects our Brain Functioning processes*
  • PS supports the boosting of our Memory and Focus*
  • PS levels in the brain naturally declines with age.*
  • PS has shown to help with Age Related Mental Decline*
  • PS supports a healthier/sharper mind. Retention of Information.*
  • PS supports help with Language Skills in aging adults*
  • PS has been shown to fight Cognitive Decline*
  • PS has been shown to help with Attention, Memory, Learning Processes and Cognition.*
  • PS has been shown to help in Combatting Stress*
  • PS has been shown to have a positive effect on Mood.*
  • PS can improve Coordination, and as we know as we age this is helpful.*

PS - Phosphatidyl Serine, what we must understand about this supplement is the fact that it is capable of crossing the blood-brain barrier quite easily. Once this happens, Phosphatidylserine binds with neurotransmitters and enables the brain to metabolize glucose more efficiently. This supplement also helps to heighten communication between brain cells. It can increase the fluidity of cell membranes in neurons that had been previously damaged or were suffering signs of age.*

It is at this point these neurons then become rejuvenated and capable of receiving and sending messages at a faster rate again. PS - Phosphatidylserine also enables the brain to more easily restore its supply of the key neurotransmitter Acetylcholine. There is also evidence suggesting that the supplement helps the brain to produce more Dopamine, another key neurotransmitter which is important in a variety of cognitive processes such as mood. *

The FDA: The FDA has even authorized the use of labels stating, “consumption of phosphatidylserine may reduce the risk of dementia and cognitive dysfunction in the elderly.” However, the FDA holds that there is little scientific evidence supporting this claim. They approved the label because of the large body of scientific evidence, spanning three decades, supported this benefit of PS supplementation.

Study #1: One study where healthy, young adults given a dose of phosphatidylserine for 2 weeks experienced a whopping 20% improvement in processing speed, accuracy by responding with 13% more correct answers, and 39% less wrong answers compared to a placebo. In this study PS affected every measure of cognitive function. This is astonishing really.

Study #2: In a double blind placebo controlled multicenter study of 425 individuals, daily supplementation of phosphatidylserine over six months resulted in statistically significant support of behavioral and cognitive parameters.

Study #3: A six-month study of 40 individuals, phosphatidylserine supplementation enhanced cerebral metabolism and outcomes of cognitive training. These findings are consistent with earlier studies.

Study #4: In a placebo-controlled investigation of 149 subjects, the group receiving phosphatidylserine scored higher than placebo in performance tests related to memory tasks of daily life.

Study #5: In a trial of 35 subjects, those receiving phosphatidylserine exhibited behavioral support after six months.

Phosphatidylserine plays a major role in determining the integrity and fluidity of brain cell membranes. Normally, the brain can manufacture sufficient levels of phosphatidylserine, but if there is a deficiency of folic acid and vitamin B12, or of essential fatty acids, the brain may not be able to make sufficient phosphatidylserine. Low levels of phosphatidylserine in the brain are associated with impaired mental function and depression in the elderly.

Low levels of phosphatidylserine, a type of lipid, in the brain are commonly associated with memory loss. This is an important brain nutrient and is essential for effective neurotransmission. Smart Medicine For Healthier Living by Janet Zand LAc OMD Allan N Spreen MD CNC

Once we reach middle age, phosphatidylserine and other important brain chemicals decline, which is one reason why our brains don't work as efficiently. There is good evidence that taking phosphatidylserine supplements can help restore brain power.

Human-based clinical studies

Alzheimer's disease and senile patients have also experienced benefits following treatment with phosphatidylserine. Doses of 400 mg per day led to significant, short-term neuropsychological improvements in such patients relative to controls. The administration of 300 mg per day for eight weeks led to significant clinical improvements in patients with mild primary degenerative dementia. In another study, Alzheimer's patients received 100 mg per day of bovine cortex phosphatidylserine for twelve weeks. Results showed the treatment improved several cognitive measures relative to controls. Animal trials have produced similar results. Phosphatidylserine has promise for cancer and heart disease as well.

Phosphatidylserine is one of the most abundant phospholipids in the brain. Its primary role is to help relay chemical messages from brain cell to brain cell. Studies have shown that phosphatidylserine supplements can have a significantly positive effect on brain function. In one recent study, 149 healthy men and women, 50 to 70 years of age, were all diagnosed with normal age-associated memory impairment, the kind of forgetfulness we all experience as we grow older. Participants were given 100 mg of phosphatidylserine (PS) daily for 12 weeks, or a placebo. Those taking the PS noted significant improvements in their ability to do normal tasks, such as recall telephone numbers and names and faces. Those who took the placebo showed virtually no change.

In a 1991 study of phosphatidylserine among people aged 50 to 75, doctors found positive results when they used 100-milligram doses of PS, three times daily. Researchers found a 30 percent improvement in cognitive function that included memory, learning, recalling names, faces, and numbers. They also found that some people with the worst memory impairment were more likely to respond positively to PS.

The primary use of phosphatidylserine is in the treatment of depression and/or impaired mental function in the elderly. Very good results have been obtained in numerous double-blind studies. Statistically significant improvements were noted in the phosphatidylserine-treated group in mental function, mood, and behavior. In a double-blind study of depressed elderly patients, phosphatidylserine improved depressive symptoms, memory, and behavior.

Encyclopedia of Nutritional Supplements by Michael T Murray ND, page 357

Phosphatidylserine (PS) belongs to a special category of fat-soluble substances called phospholipids, which are essential components of cell membranes. PS is found in high concentrations in the brain and may help preserve, or even improve, some aspects of mental functioning in the elderly when taken in the amount of 300 mg per day for 3 to 6 months, according to double-blind research. Placebo-controlled and double-blind studies have shown mild benefits from PS supplementation when used in the amount of 300 mg per day for 3 to 12 weeks in patients with early Alzheimer's disease. In one double-blind study, the improvement on standardized tests of mental functioning averaged approximately 15%. Continued improvement has been reported up to 3 months beyond the end of the supplementation period.

Double-blind Randomized Controlled Study of phosphatidylserine in Senile Demented Patients. This double-blind, placebo-controlled study examined the effects of 300 mg per day of phosphatidylserine for 30 days on cognitive, affective and behavioral symptoms of elderly women with depressive disorders. Results showed that patients receiving phosphatidylserine experienced improvements with respect to memory, behavior, and depressive symptoms relative to controls.

An impressive volume of research shows that phosphatidylserine, another modified amino acid, benefits acetylcholine deficiencies. We often recommend phosphatidylserine in our clinic when a patient is diagnosed with a memory disorder, early dementia, or depression. Multiple sclerosis patients may respond to phosphatidylserine as well.
