Dietary Supplement Phosphatidylserine May Stimulate Neurotransmitters for Mood

Second hand stressIt should come as no surprise that anxiety and depression rates are running rampant in America, for a large number of reasons. People definitely are not incorporating nature into their lives as much as they should be, and their diets are also high in trans fats and refined sugars, which wreaks havoc on the body. Many are taking prescription after prescription to no avail.

Some find that even after strict lifestyle changes, they are still suffering.

The answer may lie in a phospholipid called Phosphatidylserine, that our body produces from the food that we eat. According to an article titled “Phosphatidylserine For Brain Nutrition” published by Be Well Buzz, “Phosphatidylserine can stimulate neurotransmitters and brain chemicals that regulate mood. For instance, this chemical can lead to an increase in the production of dopamine, a neurotransmitter that plays a key role in regulating mood and emotions.”

So, for those who have a genuine imbalance, this may be the answer you’ve been looking for without all of the harsh side effects that many anti-depressant and anti-anxiety medication can bring along with them.

A few other benefits of Phosphatidylserine include “Improved memory, boost learning, increased attention and vigilance, enhance mental acuity, improved concentration, improved mood, relieved or reduced the intensity of depression, reduced stress, and inhibit increase in cortisol due to exercise and stress,” as listed by Be Well Buzz.

It is common to feel as if a brain fog has lifted after supplementing with Phosphatidylserine.

If you’re looking for new answers to old problems that are unresolved, such as depression, Phosphatidylserine may just be for you. You may just start seeing more benefits than you ever could have imagined.
