Phosphatidyl serine is involved in memory recall and adrenal function. It is found in all membranes and body cells and is the major phospholipid in the brain.
Phosphatidyl serine aids nerve transmitter release, nerve cell homeostasis, maintenance and specialised functions all involve membranes based processes that rely on phosphatidyl serine. Phosphatidyl serine facilitates membrane to membrane fusion, a central process in nerve transmitter release
In athletes, phosphatidylserine has been shown to improve performance, endocrine response to exercise stress and decrease muscle damage in athletes involved in cycling, weight training, golf and endurance running.
