Nootropics: Phosphatidylserine For Cognitive Decline
Nootropics have become a highly popular subject in the health community lately. And it’s not too surprising I guess considering the rise in dementia conditions in the US. We also had that popular movie “Limitless.” And we are all in a very fast paced rat race looking to get ahead, so we will seek out any advantages we can.
But the nootropic realm is filled with numerous different drugs and supplements. And frankly, there just hasn’t been enough time to compile great evidence on most of them yet. Many of them are unproven or don’t present long enough track records to show they are safe. But don’t get discouraged, I am going to give you one sure fire nootropic supplement that has the backing it needs. Phosphatidylserine.
Roughly 50% of PS in your body can be found in the brain tissue. This phospholipid plays a role in cell membranes. It can affect important signaling pathways for cell survival and communication. Because of its importance in brain function, Phosphatidylserine has become a well researched nootropic over the years.
Research has shown time after time that phosphatidylserine improves cognitive function, working memory, processing accuracy, processing speed, and general memory attention. Not to mention that PS is also known for reducing fatigue, stress, ADHD symptoms, and cognitive decline. There have even been great results shown for reducing symptoms of various dementias.
There are many reasons why PS is able to do this. For one, it enhances brain glucose metabolism thereby increasing the fuel for brain activity. It also increases acetylcholine production that is necessary for memory and learning. Add in the fact that it stimulates the release of dopamine while reducing cortisol levels, and now you are in a better state to think and learn.
Now to get the most effective dose of PS, you have to supplement it. The dosage used in many studies ranges from 300 mg to 800 mg per day. I would stick to the lower end of the range as it becomes quite expensive otherwise. The 800 mg seems to be used for those people doing weight training and looking for better recovery and progression. And finally, this should be taken on an empty stomach for best absorption.
Most of the supplements are going to come from soybean or soy lecithin. Many people don’t like to consume soy or can’t because of allergies to it. I avoid soy as much as possible, but in this case it’s fine. What harm the small amount of soy could do to you is completely nullified by what the PS is doing for you. Now if you are allergic or just want the alternative there is sunflower based PS too. It’s just a bit more expensive and a little harder to find.
So that’s the rundown on PS. It is one of my favorite supplements and I hope it can be of service to you and your health. Hit the like button if you enjoyed the video. You can also follow me on facebook. Stay well everyone!
