PhosSerine® Complex contains phosphatidylserine, a structural component of the inner layers of cell membranes in plants, animals and other life forms. It is also involved in signal transduction activity. Research indicates that phosphatidylserine may enhance cognitive activity.
Phosphatidylserine is a phospholipid that was originally isolated from bovine brain lipids and now is derived from soybeans. Phosphatidylserine is comprised of two fatty acid molecules and the amino acid L-serine linked to a glycerophosphate skeleton. The fatty acids found in soybean-derived phosphatidylserine are mostly polyunsaturated, while bovine source phosphatidylserine contains mainly saturated and monounsaturated fatty acids. PhosSerine® Complex is obtained from soybeans.
Animal studies show phosphatidyl-serine supports synthesis and facilitates release of acetylcholine. Exogenous phosphatidylserine can cross the blood-brain barrier, where it may support healthy dendritic spine density of pyramidal cells in the hippocampus. It may also stimulate calcium uptake into brain synaptosomes and activate protein kinase C. It has been shown to enhance neurotransmitter and central nervous system signal transduction. Human studies support phosphatidylserineâ€™s potential to support and enhance cognitive, memory, mood and learning functions. Health Functions:
