PhosphatidylSerine (PS) is a natural phospholipid that occurs throughout our bodies, but more so in the brain and nervous system. It is an important nutrient for keeping brain cells alive, where it in particular plays a fundamental role in signal conduction.
PhosphatidylSerine (PS) is made in our bodies and is taken in through our food. Individuals who are deficient in this substance can develop difficult concentrating and possibly also poor memory. Various investigations in older people have shown that they produced less PhosphatidylSerine (PS), which is one of the key factors for the loss of mental capacity in later life. Stress reactions can also be triggered by a shortage of supply of PhosphatidylSerine (PS) to the brain.
Difficulty concentrating, lack of attentiveness and forgetfulness are common symptoms that can have negative effects, especially in the workplace and in school. Mental stress develops and we become unable to cope with the enormous flood of information that surrounds us in our modern world of work. The daily intake of 100 to 300 mg of PhosphatidylSerine (PS) can boost concentration, attentiveness and learning capacity. The brain is more flexible, concentrated and effective in its work.
Bottlenecks in the body's own production of PhosphatidylSerine (PS) can also often occur in younger people. If their levels are too low, this has a negative impact on the transmission of signals in the brain cells. In schools, around 3 to 5% of children currently suffer from attention deficit and hyperactivity disorders. Added to these are learning and adaptation difficulties. An adequate intake of PhosphatidylSerine (PS) can restore normal signal transmission in the brain. Various studies have shown that 92% of cases of children with attention deficit disorder given PhosphatidylSerine (PS) showed an improvement.
The recommended daily intake of PhosphatidylSerine (PS) is 300 mg initially, then the usual dose falls to around 100 mg daily after around a month.
