Phosphatidyl Serine Complex
This product is highly recommended.
Phosphatidyserine (PS) is a phospholipid essential for proper and healthy brain function. Cellular membranes are built of two layers, an inner layer exposed to the inside of a cell, and an outer layer exposed to the environment of the cell. PS is located mainly in the inner leaflet of cell membranes where it is involved in a number of cellular activities related to enzymatic functions and the transfer of signals from and to the cell (signal transduction).
While in most tissues PS in not a major constituent of cell membranes (no more than 3% in most tissues), human brain and other neuronal cell membranes are highly enriched with PS (up to 18%). Nerve cells depend on healthy membrane function for normal neuro-transmitter metabolism and nerve signal transmission.
Elevated PS levels in neuronal tissues ensures adequate structure and proper functioning of these important cells. Maintaining brain PS levels has been associated with normal and efficient signal transduction processes, efficient glucose metabolism and other biological pathways, which are crucial to the maintenance of normal and healthy cognitive and mental functions.
What it does: Activation of signal molecules such as Akt. Activity of Akt within neurons is mediated through PS and its activation promotes the survival of neurons. Human have the same number of neurons in their brains from their birth till adulthood - so keeping the neurons in good health is of UTMOST importance.
Activation of cellular enzymes such as protein kinase C (PKC). Activation of PKC is known to be PS dependent and its activity is essential for cognitive processes such as memory and learning (information storage processes).
Reduction of cortisol levels. Administration of PS may counteract stress-induced activation of the hypothalamic-pituitary-adrenal axis in humans.
Glucose is the preferred energy substrate for nerve cells and an indicator of brain activity.
