Sharp●PS™ GOLD - An exclusive phosphatidylserine-DHA conjugate
Sharp●PS™ GOLD is a phosphatidylserine (PS)-DHA conjugate which resembles the PS of human brain.
PS is an essential phospholipid of brain membranes and an important player in brain-related biochemical pathways. This clinically-proven ingredient is nutritionally supplemented to help adults slowing down and improving age-related decline in memory and other cognitive capabilities, as described in two qualified health claims, approved by the US-FDA.
DHA is the major long-chain polyunsaturated fatty acid (LC-PUFA) found in the human adult brain, mostly attached to the backbone of phospholipids. Lower levels of phospholipids-DHA have been clinically associated to the decline in a variety of cognitive functions, cognitive impairments and neuropsychiatric disorders, including memory decline, dementia, and depression.
In the past, PS was extracted from bovine brain; however due to concerns about the possible transfer of infectious diseases, PS from this source is no longer being used.
Sharp●PS™ GOLD is an exclusive cognitive active ingredient, developed and produced solely by Enzymotec. It mimics the bovine PS in both the glycerophospholipid backbone and the level of DHA attached to this backbone (8% of total PS fatty acids), ensuring higher cognitive efficacy and wider scope of benefits relying on the vast body of clinical trials performed on bovine PS.
