Lipogen, Israel and Novastell, France, launch an advanced brain-support ingredient of phosphatidylserine with conjugated DHA for better brain function at Natural Food Expo, Anaheim, CA, US. The new brain-support ingredient will be available by Lipogen to the U.S., Europe and Asia Pacific markets.
“This new brain-support formula of Phosphatidylserine (PS) - a brain phospholipid, and DHA- a conjugated omega-3 fatty acid which naturally occurs in the brain, may mimic better the structure-function of our human PS to better activate our memory and mental performance,” says David Rutenberg, CEO of Lipogen. “It is commonly believed that PS acts synergistically with DHA to increase cognitive abilities, supporting memory, mood, concentration, stress control and other cognitive functions.”
“Lipogen and Novastell are working together to bring specialty phospholipids to the market,” says Pierre Lebourd, managing director of Novastell. “The new Lipogen DPS™ product will enable us to offer our customers another option to the currently growing market of brain function ingredients in France”.
The new Lipogen DPS™, Phosphatidylserine and conjugated DHA can be served in softgels, capsules and tablets.
Phosphatidylserine (PS), a phospholipid, and DHA, an omega-3 fatty acid, are major components of the brain’s cell membranes. The healthy structure of the cell’s membrane facilitates the signals of neuron communication, supporting brain functions.

Our mission is to improve well-being lifestyle by offering effective brain formulas and by thus helping in decreasing healthcare expenses.”
