Improves post-exercise recovery


Reduces Cortisol synthesis



Phosphatidylserine is a phospholipid mainly involved in the maintenance of the structure of cell membranes. It is in charge of repairing the damage caused to membranes by free radicals, stress and nutritional deficiencies.

Phosphatidylserine from Starlabs Nutritionhelps you recover faster, preventing muscular soreness, and promotes muscle growth, thanks to the strengthening of the muscular cell membranes and helping the uptake of nutrients.

Numerous studies have also shown that phosphatidylserine decreases cortisol production, minimizing muscle catabolism in 
times of increased stress or during prolonged periods of fasting.

Phosphatidylserine is directly related to the functioning of neurons, allowing the homeostatic balance of these and repairing them after external or internal damage. It is also very important in the immune process, facilitating the recycling of aged cells and allowing the production of new cells.

Phosphatidylserine increases the metabolism of glucose in the brain and improves neurotransmission.

Phosphatidylserine and the athlete

Adaptation from training only occur when restoration exceeds the catabolic effects produced during training. Numerous factors affect recovery, such as life stress, that can negatively affect restoration, as well as performance.

Phosphatidylserine has unique properties on this recovery and human performance, and has also been shown to enhance mood, immunity, decision making, and accuracy.

Literature suggests that Phosphatidylserine can be used as a post-workout supplement due to its anticatabolic nature, as well as its effects on lowering cortisol and ACTH (Adrenocorticotropic hormone).


1. Improves recovery post-exercise

2. Reduces cortisol synthesis

3. Increases cell membranes permeability

4. Prevents from muscular soreness


  • Athletes who wish to minimize the catabolic process during periods of greater stress or prolonged fasting.
  • Athletes who make an extreme body effort associated with intense or long-term training, who need to recover better and faster.
  • Individuals with a tendency to depressive states, stress or anxiety.
