What is Phosphatidylserine?

Phosphatidylserine, also known as complex nervonic acid. The English name Phosphatidylserine, referred to as PS, is extracted from the residue of natural soybean oil. It is an active substance of cell membranes, especially in brain cells. Its function is mainly to improve the function of nerve cells, regulate the conduction of nerve impulses, and improve the memory function of the brain. Because of its strong lipophilicity, it can quickly enter the brain through the blood-brain barrier after absorption, so as to relieve vascular smooth muscle cells and increase the brain. The role of blood supply.

What is the role of phosphatidylserine in the brain?

 It is known as a new “smart nutrient” after choline and “brain gold” DHA. Experts believe that this natural substance can help the cell wall remain flexible, and can enhance the efficiency of the neurotransmitter that transmits brain signals, help the brain to operate efficiently, and stimulate the activation of the brain. Specifically, phosphatidylserine has the following functions.

(1) Improve brain function, concentration and memory.

Supplementation of it can increase the number of synapses in the brain, the fluidity of brain cell membranes, and promote glucose metabolism in brain cells, thereby making brain cells more active, promoting concentration, and improving alertness and memory. Phosphatidylserine supplements are widely used in Italy, Scandinavia and other European countries to treat aging-induced cognitive impairment and memory loss in the elderly.

(2) Improve student achievement.

Students who used phosphatidylserine were better than the control group in terms of responsiveness, confidence, and performance, and they scored better on the exam.

(3) Relieve pressure and promote the recovery and emotional balance of brain fatigue.

A number of studies have shown that phosphatidylserine can significantly reduce the level of excessive stress hormones in stressors, reduce stress and relieve brain fatigue; phosphatidylserine can also act on neurotransmitter levels in the brain that affect mood, Promote concentration, alertness and memory, and help alleviate negative emotions (such as depression, depression, etc.).

(4) Help repair brain damage.

Phosphatidylserine is one of the main components of the brain’s nerves. It can nourish and activate the activities of various enzymes in the brain, delay the process of neurotransmitter reduction, help repair and renew damaged brain cells and remove harmful substances. It restores the memory of older people to levels 14 years ago. Studies have shown that after 12 weeks of eating phosphatidylserine, 66-year-olds have the memory of a 52-year-old.

The application of phosphatidylserine in food and beverage mainly has the following aspects:

Solid foods: In general, it is more stable in solid foods, such as choline-fortified cereals;

Beverage: Since it is an active substance, it is recommended to add it in a functional drink;

Milk: The added it can enter the fat droplets of milk, avoiding the hydrolysis reaction of PS and having good stability;

Yogurt: Drinking yoghurt with enhanced it has no content loss during pasteurization, indicating that phosphatidylserine has strong stability in yogurt;

Milk powder: it can be added to adult milk powder and elderly milk powder, and has strong stability;

Health care products: it can be added to maternal DHA and other health products, and coordinate with DHA to protect 2A nervous system

Food dietary supplements: Beans and seafood contain it, which helps the brain to function. At the same time, it also has the effect of relieving depression and preventing Alzheimer’s disease. It has a good effect on students, white-collar workers and the elderly.

At the same time, it is also possible to supplement nutrients for improving memory, such as the natural treasure, easy to be, rich in phosphatidylserine contained in soybeans, to help improve memory.
