Phospholipids refers to a special category of fats, which are critical components to cell membranes and important in a wide variety of processes in the brain as well as throughout the body. Specific phospholipids with important functions in brain include phosphatidylcholine (PC), and phosphatidylserine (PS). Omega-3 fatty acids (DHA and EPA) can only enter brain in appreciable levels if they are complexed into phospholipids, and thus phospholipid sources of omega-3s, including krill oil, are preferred for brain health. PC and PS are frequently recommended as supplements for a variety of brain disorders including memory loss, Alzheimer, cognitive dysfunction, anxiety, and depression. In particular, these phospholipids are often recommended in people with ADHD. Side effects are rare and not expected at the doses present in OmegaNeeds®.
