Phosphatidyl Serine is a phospholipid that supports healthy brain function and lowers cortisol levels. Participants who add serine to their program transition more easily from medications to EMPowerplus™. Stress caused by medication reductions and general stress raise cortisol levels. Some of the symptoms associated with high cortisol levels are anxiety/panic, depression, and feeling exhausted. Even if a person is not taking medications when they start the program, phosphatidyl serine can be suggested if raised cortisol levels are suspected. Serine is a natural component of the brain and is integral to all brain cell activity.** These statements have not been evaluated by the Food and Drug Administration.
