By Peter Uys HALL OF FAMETOP 500 REVIEWER on Dec 15 2011
Format: Paperback
The book is based on the findings of numerous clinical studies spanning more than two decades. The phospholipid phosphatidylserine shows great promise as a brain nutrient.

Phospholipids consist of fatty acids, glycerol, the mineral phosphorus and an amine (a molecule with nitrogen and carbon atoms). The most abundant phospholipid in the membranes of brain cells is phosphatidylcholine (Lecithin).

According to the clinical trials, phosphatidylserine performs a variety of functions like determining which nutrients may enter the cell, influences the shape of receptors, promotes the growth of dendrites and boosts the mitochondria (cell engines) in generating energy.

Our brain cells use PSerine to generate and transmit the electrical signals needed for brain function. PS assists the nerve cells in generating the energy they need to maintain the brain's electrical circuits. It appears to be a valuable tool in preventing memory loss in the elderly and to combat depression and anxiety in younger, healthy people, especially when taking with Omega 3 fatty acids.

Phosphatidylserine may have two distinct effects: one of boosting the cognitive functions, whilst the other ameliorates behavior such as apathy and withdrawal. It enhances the cognitive effects of vigilance, focus, and short-term memory, counteracts apathy and withdrawal and assists in managing physical stress. The effective dose would appear to be 300mg per day.

The book includes an appendix on double-blind trials for memory, a glossary of technical terms and a list of references cited in the text.

HASH(0xa15c9240) out of 5 stars Convincing Jan. 1 2013

This is an eye-opening, well researched booklet. Definitely worth the low cost. Convincing argument to at last try phosphatidylserine if you want to save your memory.
