    Phosphatidyl Serine (PS)

    Phosphatidyl serine (PS), the major phospholipid in the brain, is responsible for normal membrane fluidity and integrity of brain cells. The functions of Phosphatidyl serine allow brain cells to communicate efficiently with each other. Phosphatidyl Serine declines with ageing as our ability to learn and concentrate also gradually declines.

    Phosphatidyl serine also inhibits the secretion of cortisol, the hormone often elevated in individuals who are frequently stressed and depressed. For reasons that are unclear, the body also produces increased levels of cortisol after heavy exercise, causing undesirable muscle tissue break-down. Therefore PS supplementation is useful for both mood elevation and muscle preservation in Seniors and athletes, respectively.

    Phosphatidylserine (PS) & Cognition/Mood: Phosphatidyl Serine, as a nootropic nutrient, may help protect and/or improve some aspects of mental functioning in Seniors while other research suggests PS may also produce an antidepressant effect. Specifically, phosphatidyl-serine may help to:

  • increase alertness & stabilise mood
  • improve memory & concentration
  • improve/protect against age-related cognitive decline
  • slow the deterioration in Alzheimer's
  • alleviate depression in the elderly

    Phosphatidyl serine & Fitness: Phosphatidyl serine is also found in muscle tissue, where it may play both a structural and functional role in muscle metabolism.

    Phosphatidyl serine (PS) has become popular among strength athletes who hope it can help them build muscle more efficiently. Phosphatidylserine may slow the release of cortisol following heavy exercise. Strength athletes believe that this natural cortisol release works against their efforts to rapidly build muscle mass and so PS supplementation is used to preserve muscle integrity.
