Phosphatidylserine is a chemical that the body can make, but most of what you need comes from food.
These supplements used to come from cow brains, but mad cow disease has caused it to be created from soy or cabbage.
The supplement Phosphatidylerine is used for Alzheimer’s disease, age-related mental decline, improving thinking skills in young people, attention deficit-hyperactivity disorder (ADHD), depression, preventing exercise-induced stress, and improving athletic performance. In 2003 the FDA approved limited health claims for phosphatidylerine.
I am interested in nootropics (aka smart drugs) as when boosceuticals offerd me a chance to review their product I gladly accepted.
I have been taking their product for 2 weeks at the recommended dosage of 2 pills three times a day. I don’t have any scientific data to back up any claims of becoming a super brain, but I do feel better and my wife says I am a little “nicer” – I feel less stressed and I have been able to work a little longer without being so tired (even if I am rewarded by being sore the next morning).
I think it is working, and I do feel like I am better able to concentrate and have less mental “fog”. To me it is worth trying, but as I said, I did not take any scientific tests to prove it, but I did pass a course without doing any homework (YMMV).
