Phosphatidylserine (PS) is often used in clinical medicine to treat brain aging. In recent years, it has received more attention as a "brain-specific nutrient".
Phosphatidylserine (referred to as PS) is the main phospholipid in human membranes, and it constitutes 2% to 20% of the total phospholipids mass of plasma and intracellular membranes. Within the healthy human brain, PS is mainly located in the intrinsic leaflet of the cell membrane, accounting for 10%-20% of the total phospholipid in the bilayer of the cell membrane. PS is rich in myelin, and it is up to 70% in nerve tissue, thus plays an important role . In addition, PS also assists in the communication between brain and nerve cells.
Phosphatidylserine can promote brain recovery and nutrient absorption, increase brain vitality. And IT has a significant effect on improving memory loss and concentration. Scientific research has confirmed that this natural substance can help the cell wall maintain flexibility, and enhance the efficiency of neurotransmitters that transmit signals and stimulate the activation state of the brain. Let's see what specific functions PS has:
1. Improve brain function, improve memory and concentration.
The aging of the human brain is related to the loss of neurons, dendritic atrophy, loss of synaptic connections, decreased synaptic density, decreased synthesis of neurotransmitters, and abnormal lipid composition of neuronal membranes. The nerve cell membrane contains a large amount of PS, which plays an important role in the maintenance, repair and function of nerve cells. PS increases the production of the neurotransmitter acetylcholine, enhances the metabolism of glucose in the brain, thereby making brain cells more active, enhancing the activity of nerve growth factor and the number of neuronal synapses in the brain. Studies have shown that supplementing with PS can slow down or even reverse dementia or the decline in learning, mood, memory, and attention loss related to aging.
2. Relieve stress and promote the recovery of brain fatigue.
PS can stimulate the release of dopamine. This neurotransmitter secreted by the brain can affect a person's mood, make people feel good, reduce stress, and relieve brain fatigue.
3. Help repair brain damage.
Phosphatidylserine is one of the main components of brain nerves, which can nourish and activate the activities of various enzymes in the brain, can delay the reduction of neurotransmitters, help repair damaged brain cells and remove harmful substances, and restore the memory of the elderly .
4. In addition, phosphatidylserine when combined with DHA (OMEGA-3) can promote mutual absorption and protect nerve cells.
At the same time, sufficient phosphatidylserine can increase the fluidity of the cell membrane, and the two together protect the central nervous system. Phosphatidylserine can quickly penetrate the blood-brain barrier, sooth cerebral capillary smooth muscle cells and increase brain blood supply.
Phosphatidylserine is only found in low amounts in food. This makes it difficult to obtain sufficient phosphatidylserine from our daily diet, so additional supplementation is recommended. Allysian star product MASTERMIND contains high potency and quality phosphatidylserine extracted from natural organic soybeans. Taking it daily to help us achieve and maintain a healthier brain.
