This supplement contains two very important phospholipids: Phosphatidylcholine and Phosphatidylserine. Phosphatidylcholine (PC) is an essential component of every cell membrane, including the brain.
It is also the precursor for acetylcholine, a neurotransmitter responsible for memory, focus, processing speed and executive functioning. PC has also been used as a treatment for liver disease, high cholesterol, anxiety, eczema, memory loss, preventing aging, and gut healing. Phosphatidylserine (PS) is an essential component of brain cell membranes.
It helps with memory and concentration, as well as with overall brain wellness. PS also increases acetylcholine levels in the brain and helps maintain healthy cortisol (stress hormone) levels. PS has been used in the treatment of dementia, age related decline, depression and ADHD.
Developed by Dianne Rishikof, MS, RDN, LDN, the “Health Takes Guts” supplement line draws from both personal and professional experience.

These supplements will help individuals restore and maintain their health. Dianne is a functional and integrative nutritionist with a private practice outside Boston specializing in gut health, adults and kids, fatigue, anxiety and overall wellness.
