Phosphatidyl Serine by Solgar is a dietary supplement made from phosphatidyl serine, a type of fat called phospholipids. Phospholipids are an essential component of cell walls, that helps to repair and maintain healthy cells and help them communicate with each other.
Phospholipids are found in very high concentrations in cell membranes with high metabolic activity such as the brain, heart, liver and skeletal tissues. Several studies show the benefits of phosphatidyl serine in improving cognitive functions (concentration, learning ability and memory) and avoiding the symptoms of phosphatidylserine deterioration that occur as part of aging. Several studies have been able to show that phosphatidylserine can improve the symptoms of Alzheimer's disease, the most common form of dementia.
Phosphatidylserine may also help reduce the symptoms of depression and reduce the blood levels of cortisol.
