Support superior cognitive function and even help to improve athletic performance with this plant based supplement built from the lipids that form cell walls. Highly prominent in both the brain and the nervous system, it can actively aid the repair and maintenance of cells which are crucial for communications.
Phospholipids are a group of fats which all form a major element of cell walls. When you hear the term ‘fat-soluble' that means that nutrient is capable of passing through the cell membrane to be stored in the lipids. We use these lipids to help repair and maintain our cells.
Phosphatidylserine is an amino acid derivative compound; a compound which is similar to a dietary fat that just so happens to be highly prevalent in our neural tissue. It is both fat-soluble and important to cognitive functioning. Often found in in high quantities in fish, it is one of the reasons that eating seafood is commonly associated with improving your memory
A non-essential nutrient, Phosphatidylserine is both synthesised naturally in the body and drawn from dietary sources. That being said, there is increasing evidence that supplementation can further augment its positive effect on both our minds and bodies.
Because all cell membranes contain phospholipids in them, there has been substantial research into the positive benefits of these compounds on our physiology. Aiding the ion channels present in the cell membranes to work properly is just one of those functions and when you consider that Phosphatidylserine is present in the lungs, brain, kidneys and liver, there are unquestionably a number of other functions. What Swanson Ultra Phosphatidylserine focuses on though is the positive effect they can have on the mind.
Derived from Soybeans, Swanson Ultra Phosphatidylserine offers you nourishment for not just your brain as a whole but the way that different elements of your brain and your nervous system interact too.
Our brains communicate through chemical messengers known as Neurotransmitters. The most commonly known of these being serotonin or dopamine (there are many others!). We know these ones the best because they are important for controlling our mood. Dopamine for example is often referred to as the ‘happy chemical'. Our brain releases these neurotransmitters to serve very specific purposes including mood, appetite and energy levels.
Swanson Ultra Phosphatidylserine helps to improve the relationship between our brain cells and these neurotransmitters. This, in turn, means superior cognitive health, especially as we get older.
