Phosphatidylserine (PS) belongs to a special category of fat-soluble substances called phospholipids, which are essential components of cell membranes. PS is found in high concentrations in the brain.‡
Research has shown that as we age, the amount of PS in our brain cells begins to decline. While PS is found in dietary sources such as dairy products and organ meats, intake of such products generally decreases as we age. Supplementation with Phosphatidyl Serine can increase dietary intake of PS and help restore levels of PS in our brain cells.‡
Phosphatidyl Serine has been widely studied as a cognitive health ingredient. Numerous studies have shown that phosphatidyl serine helps improve brain functions that decline with age. Specifically, PS has been shown to improve memory retention and support mental concentration. Furthermore, PS is the only cognitive health ingredient for which the FDA permits use of a qualified health claim.‡
