Differences Between Smart PS™ and Smart PS™ Green
Smart PS is a phosphatide complex that contains a blend of Phosphatidylserine, Phosphatidylcholine, and Phosphatidylethanolamine. Smart PS Green contains Phosphatidylserine only and is a soy-free variation of Smart PS derived from sunflower.
What is Phosphatidylserine?
Phosphatidylserine (PS) is a phospholipid that is a major component of cell membranes, making it a highly valuable nutrient for supporting cognitive function. Without sufficient levels of phosphatidylserine, brain cells may not transmit nerve impulses properly.
Phosphatidylserine is highly unstable and therefore prone to degradation. To overcome the issue of phosphatidylserine stability, enter Smart PS™ — an exclusive fluid dispersion of phosphatidylserine material, provided as finished dosage softgels, which has enviable stability. Shelf-life studies on Smart PS™ found that even after 24 months, the material showed absolutely no degradation. Smart PS™ Softgel Capsules are soy-derived. For those that are sensitive or allergic to Soy, we now also have a soy-free formulation that is derived from sunflower, called Smart PS green. Smart PS green still boasts the same great stability and bioavailability that is characteristic of soy derived Smart PS, allowing you to reap the same benefits, without the soy!
Smart PS™ enhanced-stability phosphatidylserine softgels overcome the problem of phosphatidylserine degradation for maximum brain benefits. Smart PS™ finished dosage softgels feature an exclusive fluid dispersion phosphatidylserine material that has significantly enhanced stability for maximum brain benefits.
Phosphatidylserine Benefits and Uses
- May help promote cognitive function
- May help support feelings of well being
- May help support energy
- May help promote healthy sleep habits
Phosphatidylserine vs Phosphatidylcholine
As phospholipids, both Phosphatidylserine (PS) and Phosphatidylcholine (PC) are major components of cell membranes. However, unlike phosphatidylserine, phosphatidylcholine has very limited value in improving mental function. Why? Weak bioavailability. As a nutritional supplement, Phosphatidylcholine is hoarded by the liver. As a result, hardly any of it actually makes it to the brain. Phosphatidylserine, on the other hand, is a modified form of phosphatidylcholine that does get to the brain, making it a highly valuable nutrient for enhancing cognitive function. Phosphatidylserine benefits may promote cognitive function, support energy, promote feelings of well being, and healthy sleep habits. However, phosphatidylserine sleep benefits have only been found in limited clinical trials.
What is Phosphatidylcholine?
Phosphatidylcholine is a phospholipid with two fatty acids bound to a glycerol backbone and are a major component of cell membranes. It is found in the highest concentrations within the liver and the brain. Phosphatidylcholine benefits are derived from the fact that it is a choline source and that a phosphatidylcholine supplement may enhance the production of acetylcholine in neurons, which ultimately promotes cognitive function. Yet, Phosphatidylcholine benefits are hard to achieve due to its poor bioavailability. Phosphatidylcholine benefits were noted in a trial aiming to reduce localized fat relative to baseline data. However this was only achieved through injection and results were inconsistent. Membrane mediated cell signaling and phosphatidylcholine transfer protein activation is believed to be the bulk of phosphatidylcholine function.
Fortunately, Phosphatidylcholine and Phosphatidylserine benefits can be easily reaped with Smart PS™ softgels. Phosphatidylserine is a modified form of Phosphatidylcholine that actually reaches the brain. Pharmacokinetic studies show that supplemental Phosphatidylserine easily crosses the blood-brain-barrier, making it a highly valuable nutrient for promoting cognitive function.
Research in Animals and in Humans has shown that Phosphatidylserine (PS) May:
- Support mood
- Support cognitive function
- Enhance athletic performance and recovery
As a dietary supplement, take one 100mg Smart PS™ or Smart PS™ Green softgel daily.
