Alzheimers Home > Phosphatidyl Serine

Were you looking for information about Phosphatidylserine? Phosphatidyl serine is a common misspelling of phosphatidylserine.
 
Phosphatidylserine is a naturally occurring molecule sometimes used in dietary supplements. Early research suggests that the supplement may be effective for treating Alzheimer's disease and improving mental function in people with cognitive decline unrelated to Alzheimer's. There is not enough reliable scientific evidence to suggest that it works for depression, ADHD, or for improving athletic performance.
 
Although this product is essential for normal brain function, it is not known whether it is safe or effective as a supplement. People with liver or kidney disease may not be able to take it safely. Side effects that have been reported with phosphatidylserine supplements include gas, upset stomach, and insomnia.
