Is PS still effective now that its made of soy or cabbage sources instead of bovine? Can a person supplement it by eating beef brain instead? I got some belly fat that just won't go away.

Nobody could eat a paleo diet and not get substantial amounts of this compound. Additionally, biosynthesis of this and other phospholipids is occurring constantly in everyone unless they have some kind of mutation. If this were the case for OP, he'd probably be dead, not have a little extra belly fat.

Phosphatidylserine is a molecule that is being isolated. It's going to be all by itself in the supplement. It has a chemical structure that's identical whether it's from bovine or whether it's from soy.

I agree if we're talking food stuffs. But when it's a molecular compound that's *isolate* from soy, it's origins don't matter so much IMO. Only the isolated compound should be present.

Part of treating the 'root' in cortisol dis-regulation is correcting the adrenal pituitary axis' signaling. This can be done by giving the body nutrients it needs to repair the hypothalamus. One of these nutrients.... drum roll... phosphatidylserine! Sometimes things don't just get fixed by lifestyle and a little bit of supplementation can make all the difference. Prevention is easy; disease reversal isn't.

Even if you find a form of this compound from a quality source and it does what they claim it does, manually overriding a portion of your endocrine system is a terrible idea. If you do have cortisol levels that are elevated outside of an optimal range, you ought to address the root causes rather than treating the symptom. There's no pill that's going to healthfully negate lack of sleep, an overabundance of stress, or a diet that doesn't correctly replete glycogen stores.

I would avoid anything made of soy simply because it's made of soy regardless of whether or not it's effective for fat loss. I feel like questions like these are better suited for a body building or weight loss forum where the focus is on physical appearance. Paleo is about health holistically, not just an end goal of looking good by any effective means.
