What does phosphatidylserine do in the body?
Phosphatidylserine is a phospholipid, a type of water-soluble substance that is found naturally in the body’s cell membranes, including in the brain. The cell membranes are what surround all the cells of the body and the phospholipids are an important component in these. The phospholipids have several functions, among other things, they help to maintain the flexibility of the membrane and to normal signaling between the cells. They are also involved in hormone regulation and fat breakdown. For these important processes to work optimally, it is important to have sufficient levels of phospholipids in our cell membranes.
Due to its function as a phospholipid, phosphatidylserine has appeared in several interesting studies on its possible effects on the brain and our cognitive ability. Among other things, research has been carried out on how the subject can affect memory, learning ability, alertness, mental stress and difficulty concentrating. One area of research that has received much attention is phosphatidylserine and its possible effect on brain aging. As we age, the structure and biochemistry of the brain are affected, which can lead to impaired cognitive function in many areas. As phosphatidylserine is an important component in many important cognitive processes, many studies are underway regarding the substance's effect on the vitality and brain function of aging brains.
