What is Doctor’s Best Phosphatidylserine? Doctor’s Best Phosphatidylserine provides the vital brain nutrient phosphatidylserine in a matrix of other phospholipids. Phosphatidylserine is a building block for the brain’s nerve cell connections (synapses) can enhance cell-to-cell communication. More than 30 double-blind clinical trials document the benefits of phosphatidylserine for memory, learning, and other cognitive functions. Phosphatidylserine helps in coping with mental and physical stress. How does it work? Phospholipid molecules are key components of cellular membranes that facilitates healthy cell function, toxin removal and cellular signaling. Phosphatidylserine (PS), one of the most important of these compounds for neural cells, makes up about 10% of the composition of neuronal cell membranes. Phosphatidylserine can be made by the body but supplemental phosphatidylserine may be highly indicated as we age, since our natural diets may contain suboptimal amounts of phosphatidylserine. Phosphatidylserine is thought to be especially important in maintaining the general structure and function of neurons. Supplemental phosphatidylserine may benefit memory function by allowing neurons in the neuron networks to more effectively communicate with one another. Why should I take Doctor’s Best Phosphatidylserine? Phosphatidylserine and other phospholipids are structural components of brain neurons that can enhance cell-to-cell communication. Studies have shown the ability of supplemental phosphatidylserine to support healthy cognitive function. It may enhance healthy memory and thinking ability by facilitating neuronal communication. It also helps support the body during stressful times.
