Memory Plus is a supplement containing the memory enhancing nutrient, Phosphatidylserine (PS). PS is a type of fat found in every cell in the body. It is particularly concentrated in the brain, where it keeps cell membranes fluid, flexible, and primed for nutrient absorption. PS allows cells to better “speak” to one another by keeping cell membranes fluid so chemical messages can be sent back and forth.
PS levels naturally decline with age, and so too does the ability to learn, remember, and focus. PS supplements are rapidly absorbed into the brain and may compensate for low PS levels to prevent and possibly reverse age-related declines in brain function. PS naturally appears in numerous foods, including rice and green leafy vegetables, but only in small amounts. The Center for Nutrition’s Memory Plus is a concentrated source of PS, offering 100 mg per Vcap.
