Phosphatidylserine helps me in 3 ways: it decreases my anxiety subtly, it gives me a bit more endurance during the day, and most significantly, it helps me think sequentially instead of going through the day in a fog. I think it has helped decrease my memory blips, ie words on the tip of my tongue I just can't think of, and hold onto my train of thought instead of starting to write or talk about something and then completely forget where I was going with it. At the health food stores in my area, there are Phosphatidylserine supplements that have other ingredients in them and market themselves as brain food/cognitive clarity helper, but I am very cautious about what I put in my body because I feel extremely sensitive to things. I tried Jarrow Formulas PS-100 that only has soy-based Phosphatidylserine in it, and I've taken one a day for almost a year and a half now. It was amazing to find.. the only good thing I got from that certain MD I saw.

This new holistic doctor that I saw gave me these to take at night, 5 capsule, I think each is like 100 mg or something. She says it will help decrease my cortisol level. Last time my blood test showed double of what is normal. Also, she said it will calm down my anxiety a bit and help me sleep better thruout the night. Hope it works. The one that I bought is really expensive like $80, I saw online they sell cheaper ones, buy they have some other ingridiences in them.

Did she check your DHEA levels? I've also been reading about high cortisol levels at night and wonder if this could be my son's problem. What kind of blood test was done. Was it a fasting? Was it done at night? I know a salvia test can be done but most MDs will not pay any attention to this information. At one time my son had extremely low levels of cortisol upon awaking. This was recognized by a blood test but no doctor ever took it seriously except the headache specialist that he saw in a different state. You may want to go see a endocrinologist, they deal with this area. If it is a problem, they can run some very specific blood work. Cortisol levels can rise because of extra stress levels on the body.
