Can taking phosphatidylserine produce side effects?
There is both natural and synthetic phosphatidylserine. The main source of phosphatidylserine on the market at present is natural soy phosphatidylserine liquid, which is considered to be safe. We need phosphatidylserine to maintain some functions, including memory, attention, etc., and we can supplement phosphatidylserine when we are deficient.
To date, no toxicity or adverse reactions have been reported in patients taking phosphatidylserine. A few studies have been conducted on phosphatidylserine. In most cases, side effects are virtually nonexistent.
Phosphatidylserine has been evaluated to help combat dementia and other cognitive disorders, maintain brain health, and improve cognitive function in older adults, reducing or avoiding dementia.
