Any time a person undergoes excess stress the body responds. To support coordination of a proper responseAdaptogens ( enhancement of the body’s ability to resist a stress) should be used.
Chronic stress that goes on daily may develop into an adrenal stress syndrome and may not respond well to adrenal support without a deeper level of support.
The chief problem becomes short term memory loss and other unstable patterns of normal function.
Compounds with adaptogens found in Adaptocrine and rejuvanators like phosphatidylserine need to be given in a cream to improve absorption – AdrenaCalm.
Phosphatidyl serine (PS) is a naturally-occurring phospholipid and is similar to other phospholipids that include phosphatidyl choline (PC) and phosphatidyl inositol (PI).
The concentrated phosphatidyl serine (PS) derived from soy phospholipids and clinical studies have shown that when it is taken on a regular basis, it can help adults maintain and improve learning and memory. Placing the PS into a cream allows more to absorbed and used in the brain.
Human research studies dating back to the ’70s indicate that phosphatidyl serine tends to decline with age and that supplementation can benefit many cognitive functions (the capacity to think and reason).
In two of the studies conducted in 1991, Thomas Crook, Ph.D., of the Memory Assessment Clinics, Bethesda, Maryland, studied 149 subjects between the ages of 50 and 75.
The patients received either a placebo or 300 mg of phosphatidyl serine (100 mg three times a day) in a double-blind study for 12 weeks.
The researchers noted that phosphatidyl serine (PS) reduced the “cognitive age” of 64 to the cognitive age of 52 — roughly 12 years of improvement! Following six months of phosphatidyl serine supplementation, scores on memory and learning improved significantly.
At the conclusion of an Italian study the author stated, “Phosphatidyl serine appears to exert an action in two distinct contexts: one relating to the cognitive effects of vigilance, attention and short-term memory, and the other relating to behavioral aspects such as apathy, withdrawal, and daily living.” Since phosphatidyl serine is not found readily in common foods, supplementation with the concentrated product may prove to be highly desirable, particularly to mature adults experiencing a decline in mental ability.
