PS+

PS+ is a phosphatidylserine supplement.


Phosphatidylserine (PS) is a phospholipid that builds cell membranes, guaranteeing their integrity and fluidity. Initially used for its effect on the memory and cognitive faculties, today it is also used for its effect on cortisol. In fact, exactly for its powerful anti-cortisol action, it is widely used in the world of sport. The ability to promote psycho-physical recovery during periods of stress and where high levels of concentration are vital makes taking phosphatidylserine indispensable.


The function of greater interest in sports of phosphatidylserine is its ability to inhibit the production of cortisol, which has a catabolic action. In stress conditions, cortisol activates the hepatic gluconeogenesis, which is the mechanism that allows the glucose synthesis from different substrates, including muscle proteins. The higher is the amount of cortisol, the higher will be the amount of proteins metabolized into sugar. Inhibiting cortisol will also be inhibited the use of use of proteins from the muscles and therefore their catabolism. That is the reason why it is believed that phosphatidylserine has anti-catabolic action.


The greatest fear in its use has always been linked to the fact that cortisol triggers the inflammatory response. By inhibiting its action we also risk to inhibit this process of defence of our organism. But the use of phosphatydilserine is not continuous. It is used on training days, usually 3-4 days a week. In the meantime, our organism is able to bring cortisol back in normal levels.
