PhosSer Assist, 60 Softgels, SAFA Lab
This product provides phosphatidylserine, a natural phospholipid that supports brain and nerve cell function.
The brain’s complex metabolism requires many different components to perform optimally and defend against damaging influences that contribute to cellular aging. Numerous changes may take place in nerve and brain cells that can result in a decline in memory retention, concentration, and acuity. Factors associated with these changes can include impaired cell membrane function, decreased flow of nutrients to the brain, hormonal imbalances caused by chronic stress, and alterations in neurotransmitters (chemical messengers). Phosphatidylserine may help support and maintain the balance of metabolic pathways that affect cognitive function as follows:
• Supports neuronal cell integrity: Phosphatidylserine is the most abundant phospholipid in the human brain and is made by the body in small amounts. This important phospholipid supports neuronal cell integrity by providing the building blocks needed for cell membrane structure and function. Cell membranes not only act as a barrier between the inside and outside of a cell, but also play an important role in cellular communication and normal cellular responses.
• Maintains membrane fluidity: Phophatidylserine also helps maintain fluidity of cell membranes. This action is important as it allows nutrients such as glucose, the brain’s main energy source, to be efficiently transported within and across brain and nerve cell membranes, which helps ensure proper nourishment.
• Protects neuronal cell health: Studies have shown that phosphatidylserine may help balance release of adrenal hormones, such as cortisol that help us adapt to stress. Cortisol has been linked with free radical-induced damage to nerve cells, which over time, can result in cognitive decline with age. Phosphatidylserine’s ability to promote cortisol balance may help protect neuronal cell health and produce a slowing down or improvement in mild memory problems.
• Supports neurotransmitter metabolism: Phosphatidylserine has been documented to increase the availability of choline for synthesis of acetylcholine, an important neurotransmitter involved in memory and learning. Phosphatidylserine may also help enhance cognitive function by maintaining cholinergic activity in the brain.
Phosphatidyl Serine is intended as a nutritional adjunct for individuals who wish to support healthy brain and nerve cell function and may be especially beneficial for persons at higher risk for developing cognitive impairment. Each softgel contains 100 mg of phosphatidylserine per softgel.
