Phosphatidyl Serine 100, 30 Capsules, Source Naturals
Source Naturals PS 100
Phosphatidyl serine (PS) is one of the key human brain phospholipids and is essential for normal neuron structure and function. Phosphatidyl serine, along with other essential fatty acids, may also play a critical role in cognitive function, including maintaining concentration and memory.
Phosphatidyl Serine - Nutritional Support for The Brain
Recent clinical research is revealing how previously unrecognized nutrients can strengthen the body's natural defenses against age-related cognitive decline. Source Naturals is proud to present the latest breakthrough in nutritional support for the brain: Phosphatidyl Serine.
What is Phosphatidyl Serine
The nerve cell membrane is the site where molecules of sodium and potassium exchange electrons, causing the electrical impulse to be generated. This bio-electric current then travels along the membrane to trigger the release of neurotransmitters. These are the chemical messengers that cross synapses (gaps between nerve cells) to relay information to neighboring nerve cells. This sets other electrical currents in motion- along thousands of other nerve cells. This happens billions of times each second, and is how the brain and nerves coordinate and communicate with the rest of the body.
Phosphatidyl serine has a very important function in the nerve cell membrane. As a key bio-structural molecule, Phosphatidyl serine provides vital support for the membrane proteins that enable nerve cells to communicate and grow.
Regulating the Flow
Phosphatidyl serine supplements enhance the cerebral cortex's output of acetylcholine, the neurotransmitter associated with our ability to think, reason, and concentrate. Phosphatidyl serine also stimulates the synthesis and release of dopamine, related to heightened states of attention.
The brain's response to stress also appears to be related to Phosphatidyl serine. When healthy young men were subjected to exercise-induced stress, those taking Phosphatidyl serine had a lowered stress response. This was measured by blood levels of ACTH, the pituitary hormone that triggers the adrenals to secrete the stress hormone cortisol.
