Phosphatidylserine (PS) levels decline as we age. PS has been shown to support memory function, cognitive function and learning. It may also help support a healthy endocrine response to acute mental stress. As PS is easily absorbed through the blood-brain barrier; taking a PS supplement supports nerve cell health.
When taken consistently, a PS supplement may help support cognitive, brain, and overall nerve health.

- Cognitive function
Phosphatidylserine may enhance our ability to store and retrieve memories, learn and recall information, concentrate and communicate, and solve problems. Similarly, a product with a combination of PS and the fatty acid DHA may prevent memory loss in older women.
- Locomotor function
Phosphatidylserine has been shown in studies to promote faster reaction times and reflexes.
- Exercise-induced stress and soreness
Athletes who take a PS supplement during intense periods of training may feel better emotionally after exercising. In addition, athletes who take phosphatidylserine may experience less muscle soreness.
Results of a study suggests this dietary nutrient also has a positive effect on our stress response. In one double-blind study, participants were given a PS supplement over 30 days before completing tests meant to gauge their acute mental stress. Those deemed most susceptible to stress before the study felt more relaxed after taking a PS supplement.
