Brain Bioactivities: PS is a phospholipid compound that comprises 15% of the brain’s fats. It is concentrated in brain cell membranes, where it helps maintain fluidity, optimises receptors and promotes neurotransmitters like acetylcholine and dopamine. It supports brain cell energy production by enhancing glucose metabolism. It may increase nerve growth factor (NGF) to support brain cell creation, maintenance and repair. PS also helps immune cells dispose of damaged, toxic brain cells – sparing neighbouring brain cells from collateral damage.

Potential Nootropic Benefits: PS may sharpen memory, slow cognitive decline and promote a positive-minded outlook. It has shown promise for helping elderly subjects with brain degeneration – apparently slowing the progression of memory loss while helping with mood, anxiety, socialisation and mental clarity. As a result PS is the only nootropic with an FDA-qualified claim for reducing cognitive decline risk.
