Phosphatidylserine (made from non-GMO soya lecithin) assists both the young and old in maintaining and improving brain function and is likewise a must for competitive athletes as a cortisol blocker.
Phosphatidylserine (made from non-GMO soya lecithin) plays an important role in maintaining and improving brain function and is especially important for every athlete who wants to keep their body extremely strong.
Phosphatidylserine has an effect on the whole body, but focuses on the brain and the central nervous system. Phosphatidylserine is one of the most important nutrients when it comes to transmitting signals and naturally supports the brain cells in storing and recalling information. This important substance is responsible for several bodily functions and can help to prevent illness.
IMPROVING BRAIN FUNCTION
A cognitive increase in performance has already been proven in more than 30 international studies. Older test subjects who were treated with phosphatidylserine noticed vast, positive changes with regards to memory and learning ability as well as attention span and mood.
Forgetfulness, poor attention span and lower concentration can be signs of a phosphatidylserine deficiency. Normally, nutrients are produced by the body itself – however our modern, low-fat diet limits the main suppliers of phosphatidylserine. These include organs (liver, kidneys, etc) and cold meats. The resulting deficiency can lead to the brain trying to compensate for it. As a result, stress hormones are released.
A phosphatidylserine from non-GMO deficiency in children can lead to attention deficit disorders or ADD. In multiple studies on patients with ADD, PS eased symptoms in 98% of cases.
HELPING THE AGEING PROCESS
In old age, physical and mental ability declines – this is completely normal and affects everyone. It has however been proved that phosphatidylserine improves brain function during old age. Alongside the relevant brain training, phosphatidylserine helps to avoid dementia and is a scientifically proven way of tackling forgetfulness.
The second, not less welcomed effect is the increase in well-being. Acknowledging that you are no longer “operational“ leads to many older people being consumed by feelings of negativity, which eventually leads to depression. Phosphatidylserine can clearly alleviate the age-related decline of cognitive functions and also contributes to mental health.
ESSENTIAL FOR PERFORMANCE ATHLETES
Many studies show that phosphatidylserine does not just improve concentration- it also reduces cortisol levels. This means that the anti-catabolic effects which are caused by high intensity or long periods of training (tissue breakdown, exhaustion, aching muscles) are greatly reduced. IVOVITAL PS also makes sure that after training, the body recovers more quickly. Because of this, it is now necessary for athletes to take phosphatidylserine.
Phosphatidylserine is a completely natural substance extracted from non-GMO soy beans.
