Could phosphatidylserine assist in weight loss?

Could phosphatidylserine assist in weight loss?

Probably not: THE SUPPLEMENT INDUSTRY EXISTS BECAUSE WE FAIL TO ADAPT HEALTHIER LIFESTYLE CHANGES. LOW GLYCEMIC/SUGAR DIET, DAILY EXERCISE OR WALKING FOR 60 MINS/DAY, 7-9 HRS OF SLEEP. LOW STRESS, NO TOBACCO USE, MINIMAL ALCOHOL CONSUMPTION AND SPEAKING WITH A NUTRITIONIST IS A STARTING POINT. I CONSUME BERBERINE TWICE A DAY BEFORE A MEAL BECAUSE IT PROTECTS FROM SUGAR SPIKES IN OUR BLOODSTREAM. ...Read more

Does phosphatidylserine interact with levothyroxine?

Does phosphatidylserine interact with levothyroxine?

No: There is no interaction. Phosphatidylserine is synthesized by every cell of the body and is an important membrane lipid. I doubt that there is any evidence that eating more will be of any benefit, but it will not interfere with your thyroid medication. ...Read more

Would it be bad to take phosphatidylserine if I have hypothyroidism?

Would it be bad to take phosphatidylserine if I have hypothyroidism?

Depends: Phosphatidyl serine (ps) can lower cortisol levels, so best to take it at night. Hypothyroidism often coexists with adrenal fatigue, and many people can have too low cortisol in the am and too high at night, making them tired in the am and awake at night. Ps can help this. ...Read more

Can you tell me if i could take reishi, ashwagandha, bacopa, phosphatidylserine together?

Can you tell me if i could take reishi, ashwagandha, bacopa, phosphatidylserine together?

Why????: (sigh) Why are people so willing to do things to their bodies they'd NEVER do to their cars? If a fuel additive sold at Pep Boys had as little evidence of efficacy as these herbals, you'd NEVER trust it in your gas tank. Think critically. Be skeptical. Look at FACTS. Acquire some real knowledge. Don't get taken in by every traveling medicine show or snake-oil salesman that comes down the pike. ...Read more

Is it safe to take phosphatidylserine and melatonin together?

Is it safe to take phosphatidylserine and melatonin together?

Drug interactions: Melatonin is used to advance sleep onset, and phosphatidylserine is usually used or promoted for brain function. Taking them together should not be an issue but there are websites that can do drug interaction analysis. Also are you taking any other medications as these can play a role together. What doses are you taking as this too can play a role. Taking these then you need to see md for help. ...Read more

Could phosphatidylserine plus be taken while a patient is using aricett?

Could phosphatidylserine plus be taken while a patient is using aricett?

Possible conflict: Aricept (donepezil) and phosphatidylserine are different, but work in the same direction. Aricept (donepezil) slows metabolism of acetylcholine, and phosphatidylserine may increase acetylcholine & others. Net result could be more acetylcholine which helps brain neurotransmission, but combining both could expose you to cholinergic side effects: vomiting, diarrhea, dizziness, headache, irreg heartbeat, wheezing, etc. ...Read more
