Phosphatidylserine Offsets Heavy Stress
Phosphatidylserine has been shown to offset the stress of intense exercise1, a finding that transfers directly to any person under intense stress. Cortisol is released during stress and your body's ability to get cortisol to perform properly has a profound effect on your ability to manage stress and your health. When this system is not working well then your brain and your body begin to succumb to the wear and tear of stress. This results in cognitive decline, poor mood, fatigue, wear and tear, and weight gain.

Phosphatidylserine helps to maintain a higher level of brain function so that stress and cortisol can be processed at a higher level. This is a unique tool that should be considered for use any time you are under extra high stress. Of course, phosphatidylserine has always been a great nutrient for memory, coordination, and learning and so can be used on a regular basis, as desired.

A great deal of new science suggests that maintaining cortisol in good working condition is central to managing stress and maintaining your health.
