What is Phosphatidylserine ?:
Phosphatidylserine (PS) is a special nutrient that helps improve memory and cognitive function in most people, but especially older people. Our bodies need essential fatty acids and phosphatidylserine contains the essential fatty acid called phospholipid. This fatty acid is needed to build brain cell membranes that are fluid enough to release the neurotransmitters acetylcholine and dopamine.
How does Phosphatidylserine work ?:
Phosphatidylserine enables your brain cells to metabolize glucose and to release and bind with neurostransmitters. All of which is important to learning, memory and other cognitive functions in the brain.
How can taking Phosphatidylserine help ?:
Phosphatidylserine increases communication between cells in your brain by increasing the number of membrane receptor sites for receiving messages.
