As a vital phospholipid component of brain and nerve cell membranes, phosphatidylserine (PS) has emerged as one of the most promising supplemental nutrients for memory and brain health support.
As a vital phospholipid component of brain and nerve cell membranes, phosphatidylserine (PS) has emerged as one of the most promising supplemental nutrients for maintaining healthy memory and cognitive function in advancing years and for supporting mental focus at all ages. But when you're planning your nutritional regimen for healthy mental maintenance, it's important to remember that not all PS supplements work the same.
Most of the scientific research demonstrating the benefits of supplemental PS for memory and mental performance has used bovine-sourced material, which fell out of favor a few years ago due to safety concerns surrounding bovine brain tissue. As an alternative, many people turned to soy-source supplements, but soy-derived PS has a different structure and research suggests that it doesn't have the same effect on memory and mental function.
Swanson's Conjugated Phosphatidylserine with DHA capsules feature Sharp-PS(R) Gold, a patented sunflower and fish oil phospholipid formulation that binds PS to the omega-3 fatty acid DHA in a conjugated form that mimics the molecular structure of PS found naturally in the brain and human breast milk. This conjugated formulation increases the bioavailability of PS and DHA to brain tissues, delivering state-of-the-art nutritional support for memory and cognitive function.
