Phosphatidyl Serine supplementation helps regenerate damaged nerve cells, reversing defects in nerve cell message transmission, helping to establish new receptor sites in the brain. Phosphatidyl Serine can benefit memory, learning, concentration, mood, alertness, sociability, and reaction time.
Phosphatidyl Serine is a naturally occurring nutrient and essential component of human cell membranes. In supplement form it is derived from soybeans and is one of compounds within a group known as phospholipids. We normally do not carry products with soy, but Phosphatidyl Serine has proved to be one of the most consistently effective cognition enhancing products we have used over the years. The Phosphatidyl Serine we offer is one of the purest, most potent formulations available and in our testing has worked better than other brands.
Phosphatidyl Serine is a naturally occurring “good fat”—technically, a phospholipid (a fat with a phosphate group attached). Phosphatidyl Serine can be found in the membranes of all cells, but it is especially concentrated in the nerve cells of the brain. A cell’s outer and inner membranes are comprised of a double layer of phospholipid molecules derived from essential fatty acids and other nutrients. Phosphatidyl Serine is one of these vital phospholipids.
In nerve cells, Phosphatidyl Serine plays several important roles. As an essential building block of cell membranes, Phosphatidyl Serine enhances membrane integrity and stimulates membrane repair. It also supports the functions of several important membrane proteins. These large protein molecules station themselves like sentries along the phospholipid wall, where they perform a variety of important functions necessary for nerve cell message transmission. For example, they process enzymatic and hormonal signals from outside the cell. They catalyze the nerve cell’s mitochondrial energy production. They facilitate the release of neurotransmitters. And they support the functions of the proteins in the neurotransmitter receptors of dendrites.
Phosphatidyl Serine itself assists in neurotransmitter synthesis, release, and activity. It also serves as a reservoir of raw material for the manufacture of eicosanoid (prostaglandin) molecules, which carry hormonal messages to nearby cells.
1 capsule, twice a day. The supplement is fairly neutral tasting and the capsule may be opened and the oil taken directly, if the child cannot swallow a capsule.
