Functions of Phosphatidylserine in the body
- Supports healthy brain function – memory – concentration – learning – clarity of word choice – work skills
- Helps the body and the mind cope with stress
- Helps reduce anxiety and improves mood
- Facilitating correct neural communication.
- Supports immune system function
Phosphatidylserine is a phospholipid. It contains both phosphorus and fat molecules. It is one of the key building blocks in the brain and is critical for neurotransmission (electrical signals or information sent between neurons). It is present in all cells of the body, thus plays many important functions throughout. It helps to reduce cortisol (a stress hormone) levels, therefore stimulating a relaxed state, is involved in immune system function, bone formation, testicular function, supports healthy skin texture, and exercise experience. Phosphatidylserine is required for normal cellular function, specifically in the brain & nervous system. In the brain, phosphatidylserine conjugates with DHA (type of omega-3), facilitating correct neural communication.
