How to Get the Most from Phosphatidylserine (PS) for Brain Health!

As we age, maintaining our mental sharpness becomes increasingly important, and this is a concern shared by both older adults and younger individuals facing the stresses of modern life.

Did you know that 50% of our brains are made up of different fats? Phosphatidylserine or PS for short, is one of these fats and is a crucial building block for brain cell membranes.

PS not only contributes to the structural integrity of our brains but also plays a pivotal role in cell-to-cell communication and cognitive processes, such as memory, learning, and attention.

While we do obtain some Phosphatidylserine from our diet, supplementation has gained traction in recent years as research reveals more about PS. Numerous studies have shown that taking daily doses of 100-300 milligrams of PS for at least three months can result in significant cognitive benefits, particularly in terms of memory and recall. One of key reasons why PS can be effective for brain health is its ability to easily cross the blood-brain barrier, unlike many other nutrients.

In this episode, we also discuss that while it takes some time to experience the benefits of PS, research shows these benefits can be more enduring and longer lasting than other brain health ingredients you may take as supplements.

As important, we share a detail about PS that’s often overlooked by many supplement makers. If you don’t think PS is helping you, this may be why.

So, join us as we further explore the fascinating topic of Phosphatidylserine and its impact on brain health.
