Swanson Phosphatidylserine is a dietary supplement with phosphatidylserine (PS), obtained from a soybean phospholipid composition.
Phosphatidylserine (PS) - in other words, phosphatide serine - a substance from the group of phospholipids of plant origin; a derivative of an amino acid called serine; it is an important component of phospholipid membranes which constitute the biomembrane - a biological membrane which surrounds every living cell in the organism and which allows sustaining its homeostasis and proper milieu intérieur - "the environment within". The membrane is crucial for transmitting signals in the cell cycle (cell-division cycle). Phosphatidylserine has a beneficial effect on the nervous system and is the main phospholipid building synaptic membranes in the brain.
During tests, no side effects and adverse drug reactions have been observed connected with oral administration of PS. What was shown, however, is its good digestibility and the ability to pass the blood-brain barrier and perform its main function there: it enables good concentration (attention focus) and associating facts; it improves data processing in the short-term memory; it reduces passiveness and apathy - it increases sensitivity to emotional and physical stimuli and improves psychophysical fitness.
Memory and cognitive functions: In 2003, The Food and Drug Administration (FDA) admitted that taking PS may reduce the risk of dementia and cognitive disorders in elderly people. On the other hand, researchers have found a relationship between the limitation of mental functions connected with aging (a decrease in productivity and efficiency, loss of energy, impairment of cognitive functions, the ability to learn and memorise) and the decrease of the amount of phosphatidylserine in the brain.
Application in sports: Research has shown that supplementation of PS in sportspeople improves results in sports (effort capability) and the hormonal response to stress stimulus during training, reduces post-workout muscle damage (anti-catabolic effect) in cyclists, strongmen and long-distance runners. What is more, phosphatidylserine is one of few substances that have the ability to reduce the level of cortisol even by 30%. It has been shown that it significantly protects the nervous system from the consequences of strong and permanent stress, including that caused by heavy physical effort. That is because cortisol is a stress hormone with catabolic features. Its permanently high level strengthens the degeneration of muscle tissue and makes reducing fat more difficult, which leads to an anaesthetic silhouette.
Alzheimer's disease: Supplementing PS sooths some of the symptoms of Alzheimer's disease as soon as after 6-12 weeks of treatment. According to researchers, it is the most effective in the first phase of the disease. In some cases, there was a partial or complete return to psychophysical well-being. An improvement in everyday functioning has been observed, as well as the activation and regeneration of nerve cells, an improvement in memory and vital functions
To sum up, Swanson Phosphatidylserine is a natural supplement with neurotropic, neuroprotective and neuromodulatory characteristics. It supports the functioning of the nervous system and the brain, prevents neurodegenerative diseases (Alzheimer's disease, dementia), greatly reduces the consequences of stress and improves intellectual abilities. It is recommended for students, white-collar workers, elderly people. It is also good for sportspeople thanks to its characteristics of improving effort capacity, stimulating regeneration after heavy workout and reducing the level of cortisol, which is quite significant for building an athletic silhouette.
Use 1 capsule 1-3 times a day and wash down with water.
