Phosphatidylserine - PS - 100mg
Phosphatidylserine or PS is a nutrient that shows much promise in
improving cognitive function in most people, but especially as we age.
PS belongs to a unique class of fat-soluble nutrients called
phospholipids. PS is a building block for nerve cell membranes and
through that revitalizes all nerve cell functions. Although it is
contained in each cell membrane, PS is most highly concentrated in brain
cells. PS may benefit most persons because we are all subject to free
radicals formed from breathing in cigarette smoke, alcohol consumption,
environmental pollution, and/or chronic emotional stress--factors that
have a cumulative negative effect on the brain.
PS can affect our mood as well. A double-blind study on elderly women
showed that PS helped their memory and their behavior.
Natural Factors PS is derived from soy phospholipids. In clinical
studies, plant-based PS is just as effective as animal-based PS with
none of the concerns associated with prion (e.g. Mad Cow disease)
