Never Forget Phosphatidylserine to Enhance Memory

An Elephant Never Forgets

An elephant never forgets. At least that's how the old saying goes. I don't want to be an elephant, but I sure like the idea of maintaining a healthy memory as long as possible. Maybe someday I'll be able to use a brain computer interface to backup and recall my memories. But there are other things I can try today. And one of the easiest is supplementing Phosphatidylserine.

Phosphatidylserine is a phospholipid that occurs naturally in human and other animal cells, and in their diets. It is safe to consume, and dietary sources are generally meat and fish. Supplemental phosphatidylserine used to come from cows, but now it comes predominantly from plant sources, such as soy. Multiple studies on humans have found that Phosphatidylserine may support healthy brain aging, particularly improving memory:

While Phosphatidylserine has been studied most frequently for supplementation by older persons, it has also demonstrated efficacy for younger persons. According to these studies, Phosphatidylserine may also improve memory and cognitive performance in young brains:

One study of Phosphatidylserine supplementation has reported divergent results. I'll refer to it as the "Jorissen study".

Another study challenged the divergent results of the Jorissen study:

Accordingly, when selecting a product, look for Phosphatidylserine in powder form rather than liquid form. This may provide the greatest potential for nootropic effect.

To improve the nootropic effect of Phosphatidylserine, consider combining it with Ginkgo Biloba. Ginkgo and Phosphatidylserine supplementation in combination may be more effective than either alone, according to this study:

Based in part on the studies cited above, Thrivous developed Alpha Neuroprotector. It's designed to enhance brain and nerve function for better aging. Each serving provides clinical doses of Phosphatidylserine and Ginkgo Biloboa. Alpha is available to purchase online in the Thrivous store.
