Jarrow Formulas Yum-Yum PS100 Gummies deliver 100 mg phosphatidylserine per serving in a delicious gummy. Phosphatidylserine (PS) is a natural phospholipid that is an essential component of cell membranes.
PS promotes brain function by helping to maintain neuronal membrane fluidity to support cell-to-cell communication, which is essential for cognition, mental performance, attentiveness and reaction time.
PS may be beneficial during stress because it can modulate the release of cortisol, a catabolic stress hormone.
These gummies were especially developed for children or for those who do not desire to ingest capsules or tablets. This is a great tasting, sugar free product, customers of all ages will enjoy.
Phosphatidylserine (PS) and other phospholipids are the major components of the cell membrane, where they contribute to membrane permeability and fluidity. By regulating the movement and functionality of various molecules both permeability and fluidity impact cell-to-cell communication. PS is also found in the mitochondrial membrane, where it plays a similar role as in the cellular membrane, but may also serve as a metabolic reservoir for other phospholipids.
In the brain, PS is an abundant phospholipid, where it is a major building block for nerve cells. Its fundamental functionality is critical to neurotransmission and the normal brain functions that are required for healthy cognition, mental performance, attentiveness, and reaction time. In animal models, levels of PS in the brain have been shown to decline with age. Similarly, experimental evidence supports a role for PS in the developing brain. However, only small quantities of phosphatidylserine are present in dietary sources.
The Nutritional Years: A Child’s Developing Brain
The brain of a child is already equipped at birth with the same amount of neurons that exist in adulthood. As brain cells grow and develop through childhood and adolescence, connections form between brain cells that define who we are, our memories, skills and capabilities. These early connections have profound impact on one’s life later as an adult.
Nutrition plays a major role in the development of a child’s brain during the years of rapid growth. Malnutrition at a young age has an immediate effect on brain growth and its ultimate development; it can cause a variety of neuronal deficiencies in brain nutrition over a lifetime. Supplementation of PS into a child’s diet can help address these deficiencies and support brain function, as a child grows and learns.
More than 30 clinical studies have tested the effect of PS on the brain, with a significant amount of published clinical research demonstrating that PS supplementation supports cognitive function. This is especially true of the developing brain of a child.
One interesting double-blinded trial sought to determine the effects of PS in a pilot study (open label) conducted with children, monitoring for attention and activity levels, ages 6 to 12. Each child was given 200 mg PS per day for 2 months. After 2 months of PS supplementation, no adverse events and no side effects were observed. Attention, focus, and attention were improved. Additionally, visual perception was significantly improved.
Another study tested the effect of PS in milk on the cognitive performance of high school students. One hundred twenty students, ages 17-18, were randomized to receive either 250ml of milk supplemented with 100mg of PS, or an un-supplemented (placebo) of 250ml milk for 40 days. Results yielded significant improvement in memory and learning following PS supplementation. Beneficial areas of improvement included directed memory, associative learning, free memory of images, recognition of meaningless figures, and portrait features-linked memory.
Research studies conducted on children and adolescents not only have yielded positive results on cognitive and memory function but also attest to the safety of PS supplementation in children. In these trials, PS has demonstrated a very favorable benefit-to-risk profile. Studies conducted on children of school age (from ages 4 to 18) included PS supplementation of up to 200 mg/day with no adverse events. Most research on PS in adults suggests 300 mg to be an adequate daily serving for individuals who want to continue PS supplementation from childhood into adulthood.
Yum-Yum PS100 Gummies
Jarrow Formulas® Yum-Yum PS100 Gummies deliver 100 mg phosphatidylserine (from sunflower lecithin) per serving in a delicious, strawberry-flavored gummy. Phosphatidylserine (PS) is a natural phospholipid that is an essential component of cell membranes. PS promotes brain function by helping to maintain neuronal membrane fluidity to support cell-to-cell communication, which is essential for cognition, mental performance, attentiveness, and reaction time. PS also may be beneficial during stress because it can modulate the release of cortisol, a catabolic stress hormone.
For children ages 4 and up, chew 2 gummies per day (1 gummy twice per day) with meals or as directed by your qualified healthcare professional.
