Phosphotidylserine 500 mg Neuro - PS®
Phosphotidylserine 500 mg Neuro-PS® nutritionally supports the thought process while sharpening mental focus. Neuro-PS® has a positive influence on the memory, especially for occasional mild memory problems that can accompany aging.*
Phosphatidylserine also appears to restore the release of important neurotransmitters such as acetylcholine, norepinephrine, serotonin, and dopamine. Production of these neurotransmitters slows down as we age, leading to decline in cognitive functioning. Phosphatidylserine has been shown to increase the levels of these neurotransmitters in the brain in patients experiencing cognitive decline and related symptoms.
The major structural components of these cell membranes are phospholipds, and in addition to holding cell membranes together, phospholipids coordinate the activities of enzymes, receptors, and other proteins involved in healthy cognitive function.
Phosphatidylserine, like its fellow phospholipids, is believed to work by strengthening cell membranes, thus protecting them and their contents from damage -- particularly from the stress hormone cortisol – and improving the ability of cells to communicate with other cells
As we age, membrane functions slow down, and the membranes themselves are highly susceptible to damage. Brain cell membranes are especially at risk, with wear and tear resulting in poor neuron communication, and decline of memory and cognitive function.
Research in phospholipids, most notably phosphatidylserine, has yielded not only valuable insights on the brain's chemistry, but also on the development of effective supplements to support healthy cognition and the aging brain.
Considered to be the "master switch" of cell membrane functions, phosphatidylserine is located primarily in the inner-most area of a cell's membrane, and is responsible for directing neurons in communicating more effectively, and activating key enzymes involved in the cell communication process
*In March 2003, the FDA allowed qualified health claims for phosphatidylserine, including:
- Reducing the risk of cognitive dysfunction in the elderly and
- Reducing the risk of dementia in the elderly.
