Phosphatidylserineis a phospholipid found in food and plants that is essential for neural processes including neurotransmission, brain cell maintenance that reduces neuroinflammation, and neurochemical regulation. Studies demonstrate the benefits of this compound to improving memory and mood, thus its potential for addressing Alzheimer's disease and depression. Although the human body is capable of producing phosphatidylserine, there is plenty of it in our diet. This compound can be sourced in common food such as fish, cow milk, carrots, rice, and potatoes. When the body's phosphatidylserine requirement cannot be met with food, it is available as a supplement [Bazinet and Laye 2014; Glade and Smith 2015].
