Phosphatidylserine is essential for intercellular communication. A voluminous amount of in vitro studies utilizing primary human neurons has shown that phosphatidylserine is absolutely vital for proper neuronal function. Phosphatidylserine is known to be vital in the vesicular release of neurotransmitters from presynaptic terminals, transduction of neuron-to-neuron signaling, preserving Na+/K+ balance, and regulate neuronal growth homeostasis. These essential neuronal functions eventually decline with age, and their proper maintenance is required in order to maintain proper neurological health and cognition.
Several preclinical and clinical studies have shown that the dietary supplementation of phosphatidylserine has both a neuroprotective and a neuroenhancing effect:
In a preclinical model, aged rats were fed various forms of phosphatidylserine. The researchers observed a significant improvement in three different, independent cognitive tests. Ultimately the authors of the study conclude that there was an increase in psychomotor capacity and overall cognitive improvement.
