Phosphatidylserine (PS) is one of the body's essential building blocks and is a member of the phospholipids family. It is naturally found in the cell membrane and in our tissues and is crucial for optimal membrane and cellular functions.
PS is also a natural part of our diet, found abundantly in the internal organs of animals and some types of fish. However, modern diet contain low levels of PS.
PS consumption was shown to contribute to a variety of health benefits such as cognitive, stress, muscle and skin health.
