SharpMind And Phosphatidyl Serine
Phosphatidyl Serine is an organic chemical produced inside human body; Phospholipids and amino acid Serine combined together and form this essential compound that contribute building the membrane of human cells. But PS is more significant for it's association with memory, brain functions and cognitive skills of human body.
History and sources
PS is generally produced inside human body itself, but with increasing age the production of this chemical slows down resulting in cellular decays. First time, the chemical was isolated from bovine brain cortex in 1942. Since then, continuous studies, practical applications and authenticated data has established this chemical to be an effective treatment to Alzheimer's disease, amnesia, age-related memory complexes, ADHD, ADD and concentration malfunctions.
Till 1990s, cow brain was the primary source of PS which later was replaced by soy beans due to increasing incidences of mad cow disease and its zoonotic spread to the humans.
Benefits of using Phosphatidyl Serine
* Enhance and reinforce memory
* Increase awareness, concentration and vigilance
* Directly influence learning skills
* Intensify mental perception and stability
* Elevate mood and relive depression or frustration
* Reduce stress regardless of recipient's age
How the supplement works
The chemical is present in every cell of human body and contributes maintaining the cell wall and membrane functions. Presence of these organic molecules is much higher in brain cortex and medulla because in this region, cellular functions are more vigorous and the receptors are hyperactive compared to other bodily organs.
In the brain cortex, this chemical increases glycolytic activity and thus influences better neurotransmission. Transfer of information in the brain increases through the powerful signals of neurotransmitters (acetylcholine) and well-maintained receptor-rich brain cells take action immediately. PS also influences the production of choline and dopamine that simultaneously aid in elevated mood and brain functions.
Diets we usually take carry this chemical in trace amount so the body needs to produce that inside. With increasing age, body fails to produce sufficient amount of Serines and thus cellular decays become prominent. If you add the supplements to your diet, the brains cells will be prevented from decaying and result in better memory and cognitive skills.
Side effects: *No Significant side effects associated with this substance
The chemical may interfere to drugs used in treating bleeding disorders such as anti-coagulants or anti-platelet drugs. The chemical might give rise to allergic reactions so prescribing the supplements should be more precise. The supplement should be avoided for patients suffering from sickle cell disease and antiphospholipid syndrome. Safe dose schedules of Phosphatidyl Serine
According to FDA, the chemical is classified as GRAS (Generally Recognized As Safe) ingredient. Food and Drug administration authority has no specific restrictions and dose requirements for this product. Though this supplement is mostly compatible with other drugs, it's important to consider drug interactions carefully. Experts recommend an adult dose schedule of 200 mg thrice a day for this supplement. The chemical supplement is available in liquid ingestible form. It is considered as an OTC (over the counter) medicine so anyone can purchase and consume it. But, it's better to consult with your physician about this for ensuring better health-safety.
