Phosphatidylserine (PS) has shown to be potent for cognitive activity, according to Enzymotec. Through clinical data obtained by Enzymotec and others, PS was shown to be beneficial for cognitive functions such as concentration, focus, learning, memory and to significantly improve cognitive ability in elderly adults with memory complaints.
PS is one of the body’s major building blocks. It is a natural nutrient found in the cell membrane and particularly abundant in the brain. PS has a crucial contribution to the structure and function of the nerve cells, and as suggested by its high abundance in the brain, has a crucial role in the maintenance of nerve cell function, such as neurotransmission of specialized chemicals, signal propagation and more.
PS is the only cognitive bioactive ingredient that has been granted with a qualified health claim by the FDA, related to cognitive dysfunction and dementia in the elderly.
Enzymotec develops and provides second-generation PS products including Sharp PS® Gold and Sharp PS® Green.
