Rebalance uses Sunflower Lecithin due the Phosphatidylserine found in it. Phosphatidylserine is a chemically-sounding word for an all natural compound composed mainly of fatty acids that helps stop hyperactive production of cortisol in the body, allowing unhealthy, elevated cortisol levels to decrease, and consequently, a more chill vibe and restful sleep to occur. It’s involved in the synthesis of acetylcholine (a neurotransmitter responsible for brain cell and muscle activation) and plays an important role in keeping your mind and memory sharp.
A deficiency can lead to concentration and memory issues, as well as stress-related issues. Especially as we age, phosphatidylserine has been found to decrease, so those looking to keep their mind sharp and regulate stress can find benefit in supplementing with this. It is also used to help lower blood pressure and improve hair, skin, and nails.
