Full potency, soy-free PS (phosphatidylserine), the nutrient most proven to promote memory for names, faces, words, and numbers.
In double-blind clinical research trials, PS enhanced recall of names, faces, words, and numbers, and improved verbal fluency. PS is better documented for these benefits than any other nutrient.
Powers the Brain’s Trillions of Nerve Cell Connections
PS is an essential building block for cell membranes, which organize enzymes and other proteins into molecular complexes to optimize the body’s life processes. Our brain’s nerve cells use membranes to make their trillions of information transfer connections (synapses). The brain’s billions of nerve cells also need PS for releasing the neurotransmitters that power their synapses. PS promotes the actions of 4 major brain nervous system transmitters: acetylcholine, dopamine, serotonin, and norepinephrine.
Essential for Brain Cells to Make Energy
Our brains use 20% or more of all our energy. Its huge nerve cells are energy guzzlers that make more than 90% of their energy in micro-power plants called mitochondria. PS is essential for the mitochondria to function.
Promotes Overall Brain Health
Being essential for nerve cells to make energy, maintain their synaptic connections, package their chemical transmitters, and perform other membrane related functions, PS supports healthy attention, learning, and other cognitive functions at all life stages. Clinical trials and other studies indicate PS especially promotes brain health in people aged 50 and older.
