Lipogen targets stress management with new PSPA ingredient

Lipogen offers the next generation of PS brain ingredient, Lipogen PSPA. Lipogen PSPA is a new, patent-protected solution for stress management and brain health support.

PSPA is a natural, high-quality blend of phosphatidylserine (PS) and phosphatidic acid (PA). It has been successfully demonstrated in two separate, controlled clinical trials to improve stress response under psychological and socially demanding conditions measured by lower levels of stress hormone (cortisol).

According to an article published on January 2015 in Forbes Magazine, workplace stress causes additional expenditure of up to $190bn of US healthcare annual costs. The biggest factor of these costs stems from modern stressful and demanding work.

A randomised, double-blind, placebo-controlled study of 75 healthy male volunteers, published in July 2014 by Hellhammer, et al., in the peer reviewed journal, Lipids in Health and Disease, examined the effects of 6 weeks of daily oral supplementation of PSPA 400 (PAS 400), a complex containing 400mg of PS and 400mg of PA.

Results showed that the supplementation was effective in stabilising the endocrine response to a stress test (Trier Social Stress Test) in chronically stressed subjects, observing normalisation of cortisol.

'Lipogen PSPA, a new plant lecithin-derived ingredient, was designed to help reduce the response to the stressful modern lifestyle and improve cognitive performance on a daily basis,' says David Rutenberg, CEO for Lipogen.

Lipogen PSPA is available in liquid and powder formulations, and is non-GMO and kosher certified. It has been proven to be safe and effective for daily use.

'Lipogen PSPA efficacy has been successfully tested in two clinical trials,' adds Rutenberg. Lipogen holds US, EU and Canadian patents for the Lipogen PSPA stress management solution, allowing protection and support for PSPA marketing partners.
