SerinAid® PhosphatidylSerine (PS) can play a critical role in both maintaining and improving mental performance - name and face recognition, recalling locations of misplaced objects, concentration, and focus - which is often an unfortunate component of the normal aging process.

A multitude of scientific studies have shown that SerinAid® PS can significantly help maintain and improve mental performance, can help improve mood, and can make a valuable contribution to lowering both physical and psychological stress.

To demonstrate just how effective PS really is, the US Food and Drug Administration (FDA), in February, 2003, granted two significant health claims for PS, indicating that PS may reduce the risk of cognitive dysfunction and dementia in the elderly. As an active ingredient, SerinAid® PS is ideally suited for use in dietary supplements, functional foods, and medical foods.

Health Benefits

Improvement in key brain functions, including memory, concentration, learning, recall, and focus.

  • Prevention of memory loss, especially age-related cognitive decline.
  • Reduction of elevated cortisol levels and reduction of stress.
  • Improvement in athletic activities including running, weightlifting, and golf.
  • Helps reduce fatigue, reduces muscle soreness, and hastens recovery, in active and athletic individuals.
Science Information

SerinAid® PS assists proteins that manage membrane functions, assists the entry of nutrients into cells and the exit of harmful, stress-related waste products out of cells, and is involved in transmission of molecular messages from cell to cell. Collectively, although the results of PS supplementation in children have not been conclusive, many physicians and holistic practitioners, believe that PS can help children and young adults with their behavior disorders and also with their mood and stress related challenges.

It is widely known that the use of statins (cholesterol lowering drugs) can severely impact skills involving brain function. It is estimated that approximately 20 million Americans already use statins, and that this number might double if the cholesterol standards are actually lowered, as more people are prescribed statins.

Studies have shown that after six months of statin use, patients performed poorly in tests involving complex mazes, psychomotor, and memory tests. In addition, recently published studies have indicated that in addition, obese individuals often suffer from memory loss and other cognitive impairments. Again, PS has become a widely used safe nutrient to support mental performance under these circumstances.

Elevated levels of cortisol, a catabolic stress hormone released by the body when a person is subjected to physical and emotional stress, can ravage both muscle tissue and brain cells, thus impairing optimal cellular activity. With regular dietary supplementation using SerinAid® PS, elevated cortisol levels can be safely reduced, and both cognition and immune system functions can be optimized.

Current research has been conducted in assessing how PS might act as a true ergogenic agent in improving exercise performance. A number of recently published findings have shown that PS can significantly help exercising individuals improve exercise capacity, reduce muscle soreness, reduce fatigue, and hasten recovery. Finally, PS has been shown in a published research study to aid golfers in their ability to accurately drive a golf ball and to reduce their stress levels.

PS is a proven, efficacious, natural, and extremely well tolerated nutrient, and of course, it is safe to use every day. That is why PS has become such a highly recognized and highly respected mental performance supplement.

PS is extremely well documented, and has been researched in more than 40 human clinical trials over a period of more than 30 years in research studies throughout the world. More than 20 placebo controlled clinical trials have consistently proven that PS has considerable value as a dietary supplement, and that the normal diet provides an insufficient amount of PS.

It has been shown that the addition of supplemental PS contributes to the maintenance and improvement of many critical brain functions. Through various physiological pathways, PS becomes available as an important compound for cell turnover, and through the production of short half-life metabolites, PS powerfully contributes to the fine-tuning of physiological well being.

  • Dietary supplements.
  • Functional foods.
  • Functional beverages.
  • Functional pet foods.
  • Medical foods.

The ingredient compound SerinAid® PhosphatidylSerine (PS) is available in both powdered and liquid forms, and has particular application in mental performance, anti-aging, and sports nutrition finished products. SerinAid® PS will perform exceptionally well in functional foods and medical foods, because it contributes no objectionable taste to these formulations. And because it is a GRAS ingredient and is Kosher certified, it can be used as a true functional ingredient.
