"Jarrow Formulas offer a Sunflower Version which is non GMO and contain no soy. I bought the 120 Capsules due to price value not realizing they were not the same formula. My mistake for overlooking... I will go back to my original purchase of the Sunflower Version without hezitation and hoping Vitacost will carry the larger countainer at some point soon."
"Jarrow products are in general the best available on the market.
I take Jarrow Formulas PS 100 in combination with Acetyl L Carnitine and Gingko Biloba to maintain and improve brain function. I find that I can concentrate for longer periods of time and am better able to remember things. I have been using this combination for the past 10 years. I believe it is very effective."
"My husband and I take this. Our thoughts are clearer and more calm. These effects are subtle but tangible, especially during periods of additional stress. The dose can be adjusted, for example, one gel capsule per day for maintenance, up to three capsules per day, according to the label. We've taken a higher loading dose, about double the recommended amount, for one to two weeks with only positive effects."
"I started taking phosphatidylserine 8 years ago on recommendation by a nurse-practitioner when my memory (initially helped by other mid-life supplementation) started to get spotty again. When I told her how much it helped, she said, "It doesn't work for all my patients, but when it does, it works really well." I now buy Jarrow PS-100 because their other products are clearly better than other brands so I trust them, the cost-benefit ratio is good, and it performs at least as well as two other brands I've tried.
I don't think the effect is just placebo. Twice during the first couple of years (at long intervals), when I was extremely busy at a new job in a new city, I forgot to hunt down some more and ran out. Both times, I didn't realize I'd run out until I forgot something really major and suddenly remembered! A couple of days after resuming the PS-100, I could actually feel my brain being blank and then searching, sifting until it found the memory.
By the way, I've consume good oils in quantity all these years (olive, stir-fry tea oil, flax, sometimes canola, safflower, soy), so even though this is "just" a distillate of, I think it's soy oil, it does things the oils alone have not."
"3oo mg daily. I didn't notice the improvement immediately this time but since I had used it effectively before, I kept on taking it. I can now expect my brain to respond with greater accuracy and to be able to recall 50% better; that can be the ultimate gift to give yourself."
