Product Information Menu
Phosphatidylserine is required for normal cellular structure and function. Brain tissues are especially rich in phosphatidylserine (PS), but aging causes a decline in the PS content of cells throughout the body. Research has shown that in addition to improving neural function, PS enhances energy metabolism in all cells, memory, concentration, learning and word choice. In the brain, PS helps maintain cell membrane integrity and youthful synaptic plasticity.170-178 Studies suggest supplementation of phosphatidylserine significantly modulates cortisol levels, resulting in a more relaxed state.179,180
Phosphatidylserine helps the brain use its fuel efficiently. By boosting glucose metabolism and stimulating production of acetylcholine, supplemental phosphatidylserine has been shown to improve the condition of patients experiencing age-associated memory impairment or cognitive decline.33-36 Thus, replacing this brain food is essential.

About Me First Time User, Fit Grandma, Health Conscious
Comments about Life Extension PS (Phosphatidylserine) Caps, 100 mg 100 vegetarian capsules:
This product is great for memory recall, stops inflammation in the body, thereby reducing the cortisol particularly belly fat which every woman cares about. My memory is much better, and the sciatic got better. It was recommended by my nutritionist. Because it relaxes me, I sleep better. I've had to increase to 3 at night after using for 5 months instead of 2.
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

GREAT FOR SPEEDING UP MENTAL CONNECTIONS
from South Central Wisconsin
About Me Health Conscious
I started using this product while still doing office work, because I was having trouble remembering and making quick mental associations. My M.D. suggested adding 300 mg daily of PS, which is a neurotransmitter. It made a tremendous difference! I still use it, now adding L-acetyl carnitine (another neurotransmitter) due to advancing age. I want to keep my mind for a long time!
