Phosphatidylserine Supplement Info
Phosphatidylserine is a naturally occurring molecule that is essential for brain function. Early research suggests that phosphatidylserine supplements may be effective for treating Alzheimer's disease and improving mental function in people with cognitive decline unrelated to Alzheimer's. Depression and attention deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD) are two of the other conditions it is claimed to treat. However, there is not enough reliable scientific evidence to suggest that it works for these conditions.
Before taking phosphatidylserine supplements, be sure to review the safety information. For example, it's important to be aware of possible side effects (such as insomnia and upset stomach) and know the warning signs of an allergic reaction or other serious problem that requires prompt medical attention.
