Our First Impressions: Neuro-PS is another nootropic that makes the umbrella claim of helping millions of people with brain health concerns, in particular through helping replenish phosphatidylserine (PS) levels that can decline with age, and helping support brain function overall. It devotes such attention to PS as this phospholipid compound forms parts of cell membranes located everywhere but most importantly in the brain. PS is believed to work with the nervous system by supporting the ability of neurotransmitters , chemical messengers that send and receive electric impulses to bind to the brain cell membranes. The result that follows is support for brain function.
Manufacturer: This brain health supplement is manufactured by Puritan’s Pride, a widely recognized carrier of natural supplements for various functions. It is well-positioned in the online retail world, and may surpass others in name recall and credibility. The merit of Neuro-PS, however, needs to be investigated on its own and not just because there’s strong recall of its manufacturer’s name.
Marketing Practices: The touted benefits are simple and rather predictable: aiding in brain function, supporting a healthy mind, and helping replenish PS levels.
Ingredients: Neuro-PS contains phospholipid complex from soy, DHA, ginkgo biloba, acetyl-L-carnitine, gotu kola extract, Centella asiatica, choline bitartrate, and vinpocetine. Other ingredients include gelatin, vegetable glycerin, soybean oil, and natural caramel color.
Results: We feel that the benefits need substantiation, as the official product copies lack the presentation of science and numbers to back them up. We have had our share of bad experienced with Puritan’s Pride, including disintegration of pills, but we did not let these cloud or judgment when we were conducting product trial. We conclude that Neuro-PS works and delivers, but only to a certain time period. We can liken its actions to a mass-produced/high-volume supplement that is promising and decent, but stops working eventually and bringing in the projected perks.
Other Reviews: We found an average rating of the nootropic online, delving on areas like value, quality, and user satisfaction. There are complaints about leaky or sweating soft gels as well as the non-vegetarian friendly nature of the product, but other reviews point to its efficient and noticeable results, especially for those who tend to be forgetful with age.
Cost: Neuro-PS offers a two for $70.99, which means about $35 per bottle. This is very competitively priced, but one should be careful about the lack of premium qualities that put the product in the category of mass-produced, or average, if you can call it that.
Summary: This nootropic from Puritan’s Pride sheds light on the importance of phosphatidylserine (PS) levels, which can decline with age. PS is estimated to support brain function overall – a phospholipid compound that forms parts of cell membranes located everywhere but most importantly in the brain. The official product copies lack the presentation of science and numbers to back them up, although we found mixed user reviews. Neuro-PS offers a two for $70.99, which means about $35 per bottle, appearing to be very competitively priced.
