Help support your daily and overall quality of life with brain-health enhancing Swanson Ultra Triple-Strength Phosphatidylserine! Phospholipids, a unique group of substances that play many critical roles in the body, are so essential to life that they have been called vital lipids. Phosphatidylserine (PS) is one of these substances that occur naturally throughout the human body. PS and other phospholipids serve as cell membrane building blocks, lipoprotein building blocks, surface-active agents and as protein function regulators. PS has a unique molecular structure that makes it a building block for all the cells of the body and, when added to the daily diet as a supplement, has been shown to have great benefits, especially for the brain.
PS is more concentrated in the brain than in any other tissue of the body. Plant foods supply very little PS and animal foods (other than the brain, which is not common in the modern diet) have minimal amounts. Total intake of PS is between 75–100 mg daily. This modest supply of PS coming from the modern diet simply may not be adequate to support optimal brain function. This may explain why people can experience benefit from supplemental intakes of 100–300 mg per day; this amounts to a doubling of the daily intake of PS, at a minimum.
PS has been subjected to several double-blind clinical trials since the 1980s and has shown that, when taken as a dietary supplement of double or more of the normal amount, it has positive benefits such as:
