Brain Magic's Phosphatidylserine
Phosphatidylserine (PS) is a naturally occurring phospholipid nutrient. It is essential to the functioning of all the cells of the body, but mostly concentrated in the brain. Several clinical studies have suggested that PS can support brain function that tends to decline with age. Until recently, PS was only available from animal sources, Now with new technology, Brain Magic's PS comes from a concentrated and patented plant source.
Recent census figures suggest that more than 30 million U.S. citizens are over the age 65 and of those, more than half are experiencing impaired capacities to recall names and numbers, to manipulate words, or to concentrate at work and maintain focus while at play. Progressive loss of mental functions can bring considerable distress to aging adults as well as affect personal productivity.
As people age, they inevitably lose some sharpness in the higher-level functions of memory and cognition. These functions have been found to decline during middle-age and later life, often in people who are clinically healthy. This decline seems to be the most evident in the fifth decade of life. As memory and cognition slows, nerve cell density and number (referred to as "dropout") of synaptic connections fall.
What Can Brain Magic Do For Me?
Brain Magic increases metabolism throughout your entire brain. Over 3,000 published research papers and more than 60 clinical trials have established that Brain Magic's PS can rejuvenate your brain cell membranes and thereby:
- Strengthen your memory
- Increase vigilance and attention
- Boost learning
- Increase mental acuity
- Intensify your concentration
- Relieve depression and improve mood
- Inhibit increases in cortisol, induced by stress and exercise
- Decrease stress - whether you are young or old
What is Brain Magic?
Brain Magic is Phosphatidylserine (PS), which includes amino and fatty acids such as (DHA), and the powerful antioxidant Alpha Lipoic Acid.
Brain tissues are especially rich in PS, but aging causes a decline in the PS content of cells throughout the body.
Brian Magic's PS is a phospholipid that is vital to your brain cells. Phospholipids are molecules containing both amino and fatty acids, found in every cell membrane within our bodies. The fatty acids include omega-3 and omega-6 fatty acid molecules - essential for life.
Actually, PS is universally present in living things from the most simple to the most complex. It is present in every one of our cells. PS has many known functions throughout all of our tissues and organs, but is most important as the key building block for the billions of cells that make up our brain.
Alpha Lipoic Acid helps neutralize free radicals in both the fatty and watery regions of the cells, and has been shown to directly recycle and extend the metabolic lifespan of Vitamin C, glutathione, and CoQ10.
Why Do I Need Brain Magic?
Your body cannot produce Phosphatidylserine in sufficient amounts when under stress, when aged, or when lacking the necessary enzymes and metabolic cofactors. It is because of stress, aging, and our modern eating habits and food-production methods.
Stress: Like burning a candle at both ends, stress increases the demand for and depletes your PS levels at the same time.
Aging: The elderly particularly benefit from taking PS. While aging increases our brain's need for PS, aging also creates digestive and metabolic inefficiency so that it's simply not possible to get enough PS in your diet. Considerable research has proven that the ingredients in Brain Magic improve age-associated memory impairment and continued use prevents age-related decay of brain functions.
Modern Diets: Modern low-fat and low-cholesterol diets lack up to 150 mg per day of dietary PS. A vegetarian diet may undersupply as much as 200 to 250 mg per day. Other eating styles also create a demand for more PS. For example, a diet deficient in omega-3 fatty acids may reduce the amount of PS in the brain by 28% and thereby impair your brain's ability to form, store, process and remember.
Modern Food Production: To make matters worse, modern industrial production of fats and oils decreases all of the natural phospholipids - including PS.
PS is not abundant in foods that are common to our diet. In addition, the body can only make PS through a complex series of reactions and requires a substantial energy. Given orally, PS is rapidly absorbed and readily crosses the blood-brain barrier to reach the brain. Its sites of action appear to be exclusively in cell membranes.
How Does Brain Magic Work?
Brain Magic restores your brain's supply and output of acetylcholine (a neurotransmitter essential to memory). Change the way you grow older by recharging your memory for the many years ahead.
Phosphatidylserine (PS) enables your brain cells to metabolize glucose and to increase and bind with neurotransmitters, all of which are important to learning, memory and other cognitive functions.
The generation of electrical current, the transmission of the current along the cell, and the relaying of the current across the cell-to-cell chemical synapse are all neutron-driven events. Membrane proteins play key roles in all these processes, and PS is important for regulating the activities of such proteins. The phospholipids (like PS) of the membranes literally act as a solvent for the proteins of the membrane.
PS increases communication between cells in your brain by increasing the number of membrane receptor sites for receiving messages. PS modulates the fluidity of cell membranes - essential to your brain cells' ability to send and receive chemical communication.
Scientific studies demonstrate that PS restores the brain's supply and output of acetylcholine, the neurotransmitter so important to memory, and so may turn back the clock in an aging brain.
Brain Magic restores your brain's supply and output of dopamine - (essential to memory, attention and problem-solving).
PS stimulates your brain to produce dopamine and this is likely why patients diagnosed with clinical depression have shown marked improvement in their symptoms as a result of taking PS daily. Reduced dopamine levels are also thought to contribute to attention deficit disorder (ADD) and this natural substance has proven to be an effective therapeutic agent for ADD and ADHD.
Brain Magic can increase the availability and release of endogen.
Endogenous substances are those that originate from within an organism, tissue, or cell. PS has been shown to be especially beneficial in increasing the availability of endogenous choline to help the synthesis of complex molecules, and endogenous release, while similar treatments with phosphatidyl choline had no effect.
Brain Magic inhibits increased Cortisol, induced by stress and exercise.
One study indicated 800 mg of PS per day dramatically reduced cortisol (a harmful stress hormone) levels in athletes and improved their immune system.
Studies examining athletes involved in cycling, weight training and endurance running show that PS can speed recovery, prevent muscle soreness and help athletes to feel their best during the rigors of training.
We also know that PS is important in bone matrix formation, testicular function, beat coordination of the heart, hormone secretion by the adrenal glands and cell repair and removal by the immune system.
Is Brain Magic Safe?
Yes! The uses of the ingredients in Brain Magic are well validated through clinical research and proven safe in standard toxicology tests.
From the large number of human studies conducted, the ingredients in Brain Magic developed a flawless safety record. First, they have proven compatible with a wide array of medications including: antacids, anti-hypertensives, anti-inflammatories, anti-ulcer and mucolytic agents, diruetics, anti-thrombotics, hypoglycemics, anti-arrhythmeics, insulin, calcium channel blockers, calcitonin, chemotherapy drugs and other prescription medications. Second, Brain Magic's ingredients are well tolerated by elderly patients with chronic diseases such as cerebrovascular, artery and vein disorders, heart diseases, high blood pressure, diabetes, lung diseases, digestive system diseases and arthritis.
Interestingly, clinical researchers found the ingredients in Brain Magic lowered uric acid levels and liver SGPT (serum glutamin pyruvic transaminase) in their elderly patients - which can signify improved liver health.

Brain Magic Summary
PS is a useful dietary tool for the metabolic support of memory, learning and behavior. It holds the most promise as a brain nutrient since it is able to cross the blood-brain barrier. It is best useful in combination with vitamins, minerals, antioxidants, and other appropriate nutrients as part of an integrated personal supplementation program.
PS has good bioavailability by the oral route. Uptake begins in the brain in approximately 30 minutes. When needed, it can be enzymatically converted to phsphatidylethanolamine (PE), an important backup cell membrane phospholipid and/or converted to phosphatidylcholine (PC).
It is recommended to take PS with meals. Taking PS just before going to bed is not recommended as it may delay falling asleep.
PS is not water soluble and is best taken with a meal. It may be sprinkled on salads, or mixed with an array of foods, added to smoothies, or mixed with olive oil or flax oil. Even though it is not water soluble, it can be blended into water or fruit juice as a carrier.
