Phosphatidyl Serine Memory Maintenance – 60 capsules

PHOSPHATIDYL SERINE works in many areas including memory, cognition, and overall brain function.

It can also be used for its cortisol-dampening effects in cases of

Stage I Adrenal Fatigue and in other instances in which cortisol is too highly

elevated. Phosphatidyl Serine is well established for its ability to help lower

cortisol secretion when taken 1-2 hours before the elevation begins.

The Structural Foundation

Scientists estimate that the human brain contains nearly 1 million miles

of cerebral pathways between an approximate 100 billion neurons and their

corresponding 100 trillion synapses. To get a mental picture of the sheer

vastness of these numbers, consider that the earth is a mere 238,863 miles from

the moon, or that a stack of 100 billion pieces of paper would be about 5,000

miles high, the distance from San Francisco to London.

In the space of a single heartbeat, trillions of combined electrical

and neuronal action-potential-transmitting impulses abound throughout this galaxy

of 100 billion neurons. Many of these neurons and their associated pathways

control our ability to concentrate and remember. Their efficiency determines

how well an individual perceives and learns, ultimately determining the

character and quality of that individual’s life.

Stress Check

The brain’s remarkable ability to perceive, perform, remember and

learn is severely challenged by today’s  stressful emotional, mental and physical

environments. Left unchecked, these environmental factors may significantly

accelerate the decline in nerve cell activity that normally occurs with age.

Phosphatidyl Serine is a potent supplement that helps provide the

brain with the support and energy it needs to deal with the physical and mental

stresses of an ever-changing environment.

The brain’s response to stress also appears to be related to

phosphatidyl serine. Increased circulating concentrations of phosphatidyl

serine also may attenuate endocrine responses to acute stress.

Phosphatidyl Serine, the Major Phospholipid

As a key bio-structural molecule, phosphatidyl serine provides vital

support for membrane proteins that enable nerve cells to communicate, survive

and grow.

Within the healthy human brain, phosphatidyl serine is a basic

structural component of the endoplasmic reticulum, nuclear envelope, Golgi

apparatus, inner (cytosolic) leaflet of the plasma membrane, outer

mitochondrial membrane and myelin.

Adequate intramembrane phosphatidyl serine content is required for the

fusion of intraneuronal secretory granules within the presynaptic membrane, and

for subsequent release of neurotransmitter molecules into the synaptic cleft.

·         Within the brain, phosphatidyl serine is

incorporated into neuronal cell membranes, influencing metabolism of the

neurotransmitters acetylcholine, norepinephrine, serotonin and dopamine.

·         Adequate intramembrane phosphatidyl serine

content is required for efficient neurotransmission throughout the human

nervous system.

·         Dietary supplementation with phosphatidyl serine

supports intracellular communication by increasing the fluidity of cell

membranes.

·         Adequate intramembrane phosphatidyl serine

content is required for proper postsynaptic neurotransmitter receptor

interactions.

·         Increasing supply of phosphatidyl serine to the

human brain supports acetylcholine synthesis, which in turn supports human

cognitive functioning.
