This is my second bottle of PhosphatidylSerine from Double Wood supplements, and it's made a big difference in giving me both calm and focus. That might not sound like a huge deal, but here's the situation: In February, my company went out of business without warning and I suddenly lost my dream job. That sent me into a complete tailspin. Not only did I felt panicky and anxious virtually 'round the clock, I also gained a significant amount of weight in a short time without changing anything in my diet (I was NOT stress eating).
After a few months of struggle, I realized the problem had to be cortisol-related due to the overwhelming stress. I could feel panicky and manic and yet not have the energy to do anything but lie in bed all day. After doing some research on various cortisol blockers, I felt the mechanism of PhosphatidylSerine (assisting in cortisol uptake rather than attempting to block it) was a good choice for me. I have now been taking 450mg (3 capsules daily
) for about two months, and the change is awesome.
I now feel calm and focused, but also energized. I can get through my day without feeling exhausted. I have a more positive outlook and hope for finding another great job. In comparison, I took a prescribed antidepressant early on, and it made me feel like trash. One thing I will say is that I have learned to avoid taking the PhosphatidylSerine in the early afternoon as taking it at that time makes me drowsy. Conversely, if I take it in the morning before Pure Barre class, at noon before I ride my horse, and in the evening before I hit the gym, I have energy to get through all of these activities.
If you feel stressed and exhausted, and think cortisol might be your culprit, I would definitely suggest giving this a shot. BONUS, the capsules are small and easy to swallow.
