Safe Inattentive ADD supplements and inexpensive phosphatidylserine

I wanted to post a bit more information about phosphatidylserine because I got a few emails from folks wanting  more specifics.  The least expensive, safest and best way to ingest phosphatidylserine is in the form of Krill Oil or Neptune Krill Oil to be exact.  it turns out that these little shrimp (krill) are chock full of  VERY bio-available phosphatidylserine.  You want the phosphatidylserine to be as bio-available as possible because if you ingest it and it sits in your gut then it is money wasted.  It has to cross the blood brain barrier to do any good and the phosphatidylserine in Krill oil does that more effectively than any other form of phosphatidylserine.  Please see  my last post on phosphatidylserine for more information on that.  The link to that post is below.

I was recently asked two questions.  Where to get the phosphatidylserine inexpensively and where to find a reputable manufacturer.  You want a company that makes this stuff in the U.S., Europe, or Canada as the regulations there are standardized and products from these locations are considered to be safe.   You want the companies to be USP verified because those products have met the standards of safety.

The name of the product you want to get is Neptune Krill Oil or NKO.  All other Krill oil is not the same.  NKO has a significant amount of phosphatidylserine and it is the primary phospholipid in this substance.  I have included a list of USP verified companies below as well.  I was able to find a Schiff Nutrition NKO Product at Amazon with 90, 300mg softgels for $15.00 plus shipping.  The recommended dose is 1 per day so that is a price of $5.00 per month which your really can't beat.  The link to the Schiff product is up at the left and is below as well.

I really love all your comments on these  posts.  Let me know if I can answer any other questions.  Writing is easier for me if you comment otherwise it feels as though I am talking to myself and I did way tooooooo much of that as a kid!!!

  1. I want to have my 16 yr old daughter take this, but what if it wears off once she gets home from school? Taking two 300mgs pills a day I think would be too much. What product would you recommend for my daughter?


  2. Hi Britt,

    This is not like a prescription medication. It is more like a dietary supplement. She would take on a day much like she would take a vitamin.

    I will email you with more recommendations, as you requested in another comment.

    Thanks for your comments.

  3. I should probably send you my email then. I saw your post for today. Thank you for that. Its very helpful. We will start with your recommendations. We have tried coffee for days she has tutoring because they are long for her & she is always tired after school. The coffee does help her I've noticed. Thanks again for all of your information. It is nice to know someone is out there with insight & first hand experience.




  5. I was wondering about potassium after adaptation. Are there any special things I should do or is eating adequate protein enough? Also, I once ate nothing but animal products for eight weeks on a bet. I found I quite enjoyed it but felt I would have enjoyed it more if I could have had a small side of vegetable or use them as a condiment. Would that sort of diet be sustainable do you think? Toward the end of my eight weeks I must admit I didn't always feel my best. My husband thinks I was not eating enough. I love what I've read so far and will be visiting regularly.

  6. Great post shared by you. Dietary supplements are beneficial for those who are suffering from improper digestion, food breakdown and absorption of the nutrients problem. These supplements are safe to use and are 100% natural. But before the intake of any of them you must consult your doctor first.
