Phosphatidylserine is a naturally occurring membrane phospholipid that is found in high concentrations in brain tissues where it compromises 10-20% of the total phospholipid pool. Performance anxiety in athletes affects sports health. Therefore, phosphatidylserine helps to relieve anxiety and stress, works on cortisol to balance, and control hormonal levels in the brain.

Phosphatidylserine usage in sports is known for improving performance during stress, by suppressing cortisol levels. Studies involved athletes in various sports suggest that it’s usage;

  • Speed up recovery
  • Prevent muscle soreness
  • Improve well-being
  • Improve concentration
  • Help in increasing the rate of glucose transportation to muscle cells and enhances recovery of muscle glycogen following heavy exercise

For better functioning of the brain, your diet must include essential fats such as Phosphatidylserine, which is a major component of brain health & is responsible for passing cognitive signals to respond to stimuli better. Sleep deprivation also increases cortisol, leading to increased stress levels and ultimately affecting sports performance.

“Stress is inevitable for athletes”

What happens when a sports person gets stressed?

During stress, the adrenal cortex gland releases a hormone called cortisol, which initiates a response by increasing the heart rate, metabolism and creating a sense of anxiety. The excess cortisol response to exercise-induced stress in sports results in sore muscles, decreased performance, injury, low immunity, and depression.

Thus, phosphatidylserine by Best Source Nutrition is a natural brain supplement & helps in managing cortisol secretion (stress hormone) and anxiety faced in sports and enhances performance. This supplement provides neuron support, improves memory, and neuroplasticity for better communication, focus and concentration.

How Phosphatidylserine is useful for Sports health?

As stated in the Journal of the International Society of Sports Nutrition, many clinical studies in sports have suggested that Phosphatidylserine speed up recovery, prevent muscle soreness, improve well-being, possess ergogenic properties, and suppresses cortisol. Also protects muscle membranes against phospholipase damage, which is formed in response to muscle trauma.

A study conducted by M. Kingsley and others on 14 active males, who were given 750 mg of soybean extracted phosphatidylserine for 10 days increased exercise exhaustion time following supplementation. The vital nutrients for brain function: Phospholipids-phosphatidylserine (PS) and phosphatidylcholine (PC). A steady and good supply of these dietary phospholipids from supplementation will ensure optimal brain health.

The two important reasons to opt for BestSource Nutrition’s Phospholipid Complex enriched phosphatidylserine is:

  • It is from a non-GMO, high-quality Soy source and natural source of dietary phospholipids. Best Source Nutrition’s Phospholipid Complex contains a very good standardization of PS & PC 20% phosphatidylserine (PS) and 20% phosphatidylcholine (PC).
  • It comes in the form of vegetarian capsules, suitable for all.

Sporty Glimpse:

Sportspersons dedicate hours to exercise and training to give their best performance. But sports overtraining can lead to performance stress and high cortisol levels. Chronic overtraining often causes a disturbance in the ratio between anabolic hormone- testosterone and catabolic hormone- cortisol. It is necessary to take care of cortisol levels for optimum performance and better sports health. By reducing cortisol levels, athletes can enhance their focus, performance, and concentration. Brain supplement like phosphatidylserine (PS) is the best investment in sports nutrition.
