Phosphatidylserine (PS) is an important phospholipid membrane component (what coats and nourishes the myelin sheaths in the brain) and is essential for proper neurotransmitter production and communication. PS plays a key role in cell cycle signaling, specifically in relationship to apoptosis. PS binds to extra cortisol which can help improve sleep quality and help resolve adrenal fatigue complications. Good sleep increases glucose metabolism and is linked to better blood sugar control. Studies have shown that just one night of poor sleep can increase leptin, insulin and cortisol while decreasing ghrelin (our satiety hormone).
PS 150 features 150 mg of non-soy, sunflower-sourced phosphatidylserine (PS) per capsule. There are no foods rich in PS, so supplementation is essential in order to increase the body's levels of this brain-supportive nutrient. Made with non-GMO ingredients.
