SUPPORT FOR MEMORY AND BRAIN FUNCTION*
Balanced Brain™ Contains a naturally occurring phospholipid that makes up the Basic Structural Components of Cell Membranes, and plays an important role in how the they communicate with the body. This is called “Cellular Communication” the proper functioning of this process is essential to the Central Nervous System.
In other words, Balanced Brain™ supports healthy Neurotransmitters which are defined as chemical messengers that Carries, Boosts, and Balances Signals between Neurons, or Nerve Cells, and other Cells in the Body. These chemical messengers can affect a wide variety of both physical and psychological Functions including heart rate, sleep, appetite, mood, fear, memory, learning and Focus.
Neurotransmitters are chemical messengers in the body. Their job is to transmit and deliver signals to over a Billion nerve cells to target cells in seconds. … The Brain needs Neurotransmitters to regulate Necessary Functions For The Body.
Balanced Brain™ contains the much needed Brain Food Health and Support for Cell Membranes and Central Nervous System.
Phosphatidylserine supplements have been made from cabbage, soy, and other sources. We use non-GMO soy lecithin with naturally occurring phosphatidylcholine and phosphatidylethanolamine as a safe, sustainable, and vegan-friendly source.

BENEFITS OF BALANCED BRAIN™
The key ingredient in Balanced Brain™ is a vital component present in the inner surface of brain cell membranes. And is the major acidic phospholipid class that accounts for 13–15 % of the phospholipids in the human cerebral cortex.
It is important for cell membrane function and plays a major role in cellular metabolism and communication.
BALANCED BRAIN™ CAN HELP...
HOW BALANCED BRAIN™ WORKS
By promoting increased brain activity through the neurotransmitters ( The Messengers ), key ingredient phosphatidylserine improves the ability of ADHD and Older Patients to Focus, to control their impulses and to learn better without getting fatigued easily.
Balanced Brain promotes communication between brain cells by stimulating the release of neurotransmitters ( The Messengers ) and increases the number of membrane receptors for signaling and relaying this communication.
It supports human cognitive functions, including the formation of short-term memory, the consolidation of long-term memory, the ability to create new memories, the ability to retrieve memories, the ability to learn and recall information, the ability to focus attention and concentrate, the ability to reason and solve problems, language skills, and the ability to communicate.
Among the natural sources of phosphatidylserine, the highest concentration of this bioactive nutrient is found in cow brains. However, concern over infectious diseases contained in cow brains may prohibit their consumption.
Mackerel and tuna fish are also good sources of phosphatidylserine.
Other sources include organ meats, such as the kidneys and livers. Some plants such as soybeans, white beans and cabbage, also contain phosphatidylserine.
The most convenient source of phosphatidylserine is a good quality supplement. There are many low-quality phosphatidylserine supplements on the market. Many are simply soy lecithin supplements that are not standardized for phosphatidylserine content. Look for those containing at least 40% phosphatidylserine.

Phosphatidylserine is a vital component present in the inner surface of brain cell membranes. It is important for cell membrane function and plays a major role in cellular metabolism and communication. Normally the brain is capable of manufacturing sufficient amounts of phosphatidylserine; however, in the absence of adequate essential fatty acids and vitamin B, this production may be insufficient. This bioactive nutrient is commonly used by natural health care practitioners to treat cognitive disorders, including attention deficit in children and adults.
With the high number of studies done on phosphatidylserine, scientists have identified a number of ways by which the bioactive phospholipid produces its positive effects.
First, phosphatidylserine drives glucose metabolism in the brain cells. This effect provides brain cells with the nutrient and energy to function optimally.
Secondly, phosphatidylserine promotes communication between brain cells by stimulating the release of neurotransmitters and increasing the number of membrane receptors for signaling and relaying this communication. By promoting increased brain activity through the neurotransmitters, phosphatidylserine improves the ability of ADHD patients to focus, to control their impulses and to learn better without getting fatigued easily.
Also, phosphatidylserine also increases the level of acetylcholine in the brain. The amount of this neurotransmitter is reduced as we age. But by returning acetylcholine level to its value when the patient is younger, phosphatidylserine improves memory and reverses the sign of aging in the brain. To increase the level of acetylcholine, phosphatidylserine increases the amount of its precursor (choline) produced in the cells. Strangely, phosphatidylcholine, a related phospholipid, does not increase acetylcholine levels. Acetylcholine is not the only neurotransmitter affected by phosphatidylserine. Dopamine levels are also increased. In this way, phosphatidylserine produces an effect similar to the known ADHD medications. By boosting dopamine production, the phospholipids allow more dopamine to get to the synapses between the neurons of the central nervous system.
Furthermore, this phospholipid is known to control some of the functions of cell membranes, especially their fluidity. This allows a greater efficiency when brain cells are sending and receiving chemicals and signals.
As per the Centers for Disease Control, ADHD or attention deficit hyperactive disorder, affects over 5 million American children aged between 4 and 17 years. Attention deficit is the most common behavioral disorder found in children, and this condition is characterized by inattentiveness, hyperactivity, and impulsiveness. Conventional medications might result in side effects; hence, some parents prefer alternative methods to treat ADHD. Phosphatidylserine is a promising bioactive nutrient used to alleviate ADHD symptoms.
With over 3,000 studies done to access the efficacy of phosphatidylserine in the treatment of ADHD, the bioactive molecule is now believed to provide positive benefits. In fact, parents who take their ADHD children off stimulant ADHD medications and start them solely on phosphatidylserine still report improvement of symptoms.
Scientists are just starting to find out the role of phosphatidylserine in the management of attention deficit hyperactive disorder. Dr. Balch and Dr. Stengler, authors of the book ‘Prescription for Natural Cures,’ have listed phosphatidylserine as a fantastic prescription for ADHD and emphasize that it assists brain cells function in the right way. Phosphatidylserine stabilizes the brain cells function by tempering brain-lipid content. One study discovered that nearly 90 percent of the subjects, administered 200 to 300 mg of the bioactive nutrient daily, experienced steady improvement in ADHD symptoms.
More than 3,000 published research papers and over 60 clinical trials have recognized that phosphatidylserine can renew brain cell membranes.
- Improve memory power.
- Increase vigilance and attention span.
- Enhance learning and grasping capabilities.
- Boost mental acuity.
- Strengthen mental focus.
- Ease depression and uplift mood.
Athletes use phosphatidylserine as a nutritional supplement to combat stress from strenuous exercises. The phospholipid aids muscle recovery and contributes to hormonal balance in athletes. It is believed to work in sport nutrition by reducing the production of cortisol during and after workouts.
For people diagnosed with ADHD, phosphatidylserine produces the following effects:
- Increase vigilance, mental focus and attention.
- Promote memory formation, learning and cognition.
- Relieve depression and boost the mood.
- Relieve signs of stress caused by hyperactivity through a reduction of cortisol levels.
The use of phosphatidylserine has been proven safe in standard toxicology tests. The large number of clinical studies and researches conducted on phosphatidylserine produced a flawless record. Dr. Balch and Dr. Stengler advise a dosage of 300 to 500 mg of this natural ADHD supplement daily for 3 months, followed by a dosage of 100 to 300 mg. Phosphatidylserine is generally considered safe when taken in the recommended doses, with very mild side effects rarely reported.
A safe commercial source of the phospholipid is soy lecithin. Phosphatidylserine should not be confused with phosphorylated serine which is often wrongly claimed by some manufacturers as a substitute. Phosphorylated serine is not a phospholipid and does not produce the same beneficial effects in the body.
