Give it a shot if you want to. You should be taking that much vit c a day regardless and its cheap so no biggie. The PS cant hurt, but evidence that its really gonna make a significant contribution to your efforts is not great.
Bottom line is concentrating on things like cortisol control or GH release is faulty thinking. Sort of like not seeing the forest for the trees. Its better that you look for supplements that have been shown to be effective in your ultimate goal, which is getting ripped. I understand your desire to experiment and try to be sophisticated about it
Thanks for the feedback. As far as PS, I will give it a shot for a month and evaluate from there. It is a little on the pricey side, so I am not sure the benefits will outweigh the cost.
Also, I noticed that alot of PS supplements contain more than this particular phospholipid. See ex: below
PHOSPHATIDYLSERINE COMPLEX (SHARP*PS) 500 Mg
Phosphatidylserine 100 Mg
Phosphatidylcholine 25 Mg
Phosphatidylethanolamine 2.5 Mg
Phosphatidylinositol 1.5 Mg
Any benefits to the other 3? I have only seen extensive research done on phosphatidylserine (albeit mostly done on PS extracted from cows brains, I believe most are now from soy)
To me, this "complex" is only an example of padding the numbers per se, as the most desired form is the Phosphatidylserine itself. Others added for fluff?
