Phosphatidylserine (Seriphos)

by admin_amy | Published October 31, 2018

Phosphatidylserine is a type of fat found in every cell of the human body, but most concentrated in the brain tissue. It enables the brain to use glucose (blood sugar) more efficiently. Glucose is brain fuel, and when the brain has better access to fuel, it thinks better.

When our cortisol (stress) levels  are out of control, the body loses equilibrium. Chronic stress levels cause the adrenal glands to pump out mega-doses of cortisol, which then desensitize two parts of the brain called the hypothalamus and the hippocampus. These act as the shut-off valves for cortisol. When they become desensitized, cortisol levels go haywire.

Phosphatidylserine  stops hyperactive production of cortisol (the stress hormone) in the body, allowing unhealthy, elevated cortisol levels to decrease, and consequently, more restful sleep to occur. It has been shown that it May Improve Symptoms from Alzheimer’s Disease (memory) , Aids the Slowdown of Age-Related Cognitive Decline, Combats Depression, Improves Parkinson’s Disease Symptoms, Treats ADHD Symptoms, Boosts Athletic Performance, effects metabolism (weight loss),  and calms anxiety.

Remember, phosphatidylserine reduces cortisol levels. Cortisol plays a crucial role in your energy level, and should peak in the morning.  It is often recommended to take your first dose of phosphatidylserine after 12pm. Take it at supper and bedtime to promote sleep as it makes Cortisol taper off so you can sleep sound. To learn more, read these articles:
