I'm going to give this NSI product a try.

Actually I'll order the (120 x version) which are a bit more just because they are ready to ship.

I think these are just as cheap as what you found.. and I know vitacost has no problems with shipping to Canada.

200mg * 300 pills / 7977 = 7.52 mg/cents

Not bad but still not close to the 9-10mg/cents. Reasonable though.

I wouldn't get anything less than 7.5 mg/cents.

Searching for Phosphatidylserine shows lecithin as a source but as a soy object that's bad I assume (but cheap!)
I remember reading a MILO article not long ago where someone was promoting lecithin as a supplement...
This article ends with this nice summation:

Quote:
When applied to fruits that are nearly ripe – going into puberty, so to speak -- LPE promotes ripening. When applied to picked fruit or cut flowers that are already ripe or blooming, however, it will "reduce senescence by inhibiting some of the enzymes involved in membrane breakdown." This can dramatically extend shelf life.38 Whether the substance could also keep human bodies fresh for funeral home viewings has not yet been investigated.

I found out, anecdotally, that lecithin increases ejaculate volume, way back when I was younger and had no idea about the tricks porn stars use.

Thanks for doing that research, Shafman.

I recently learned that the favorite studies of PS proponents were mainly done with multi-GRAM doses, and were given IV (not oral). This changes the game completely.

I am currently waiting on a shipment of some transdermal PS that is given in gram doses. I will report back.

It is for sure good stuff if especially if normal homeostatic mechanisms are getting disrupted via overreaching/overtraining, over-stressing, lack of sleep, etc.

Basically, reduction in cortisol leads to a better quality of sleep, especially as you get older and cortisol naturally rises while growth hormone production drops off.

The quality of supplement I have compared to the other supplement I had earlier is noticably less though. I think it may be because it's couple with the GMO soybean oil.

If you're going to try it I think it would be better off getting it in powdered form or in a different oil mix.. preferably one that doesn't contain a lot of omega 6 fatty acids.
