In the Cell of the Brain
PS-100 is phosphatidylserine, a key component of cell membranes in the brain. The cell membrane is the seal around the cell that protects it and determines what can come in and out, and well as holding together enzymes and other important proteins. PS's role in the cell membrane makes it absolutely essential for the proper structure and function of the brain.
Supports Brain Function
PS has primarily been found to support cognitive function. It does this by supporting the structure of brain cells, by blocking the age-related decline in nerve growth factor, and by helping to replenish levels of acetylcholine in the aging brain. Acetylcholine is an important neurotransmitter that is depleted in Alzheimer's disease. Clinical trials with PS have found that it can reduce the symptoms of Alzheimer's disease, as well as age-related memory loss and general dementia. Furthermore, it reduces the levels of the stress hormone cortisol, which makes it helpful for athletes and possibly for mood elevation.
Reduces Cognitive Decline
PS is essential for the proper functioning of the brain. As a supplement, it has been shown in clinical trials to benefit those who are suffering from cognitive decline.
