011 – Dr. Parris Kidd Discusses Natural Brain Enhancers

Brain SupportDr. Parris Kidd is a leading international authority on the roles of phospholipids in brain functions. It was through his own challenges with brain issues that Dr. Kidd began his exploration of nutrients for better brain health. Dr. Kidd has researched the benefits of vital lipid molecules that are necessary for memory, mood and stress. The benefits of phosphatidyl serine (PS) and glycerophosphocholine (GPC) have been well researched and are among the most important nutrients for brain health. In this show we’ll discuss these benefits.

The benefits of PS and GPC range from simple memory improvements like mental clarity to significant benefits for more serious problems such as depression, dementia and Alzheimer’s disease. They have been shown to be beneficial for children and they may work better than Ritalin for ADHD for some children.

Hello, I was wondering if you recommend a brand of GPC? I am so very interesting in giving it a try.
Thank you.

Hi Maria,
I can recommend Doctor’s Best’s Natural Brain Enhancers. It contains GPC and PS as created and endorsed by Dr. Parris Kidd. Otherwise I would look for a trademarked ingredient such as AlphaGPC. Go to the AlphaGPC site and you may find the brands that use that specific form as a raw material.
Good Luck.

I was reading about other supplements that promote brain health & function, and I was wondering if the ingredients that are supposed to do that in this product cross the blood-brain barrier?

I don’t know what “other supplements” you refer to, so I cannot speak to those. I have interviewed many experts and nutrients that are helpful for brain support. These nutrients generally exert their effects in the brain which suggests that they do indeed cross the blood brain barrier. You would need to look at each nutrient individually to discover it’s status relative to crossing the blood/brain barrier.

My adult son is on disability. He has OCD/high anxiety/stress. The brain is deteriorating to the point it usually took him long time gropping words to finish the sentence. Does Doctor’s Best’s PS supplement help? I would like to give it a try. Where can I get it?

Also I appreciate if you can send a copy of Dr. Parris Kidd’s book to:

Hello Helen,
I cannot know if Natural Brain Enhancers will help. The only way to know is to try it. My opinion is that a body that is well nourished will do better than one that is not. The best nutritional program is the one that works for you (your son). And to know that you have to try the product for a period of time. Perhaps 3 months. The other nutrient you should consider is DHA. Listen to the podcasts on DHA with Dr. Kidd and Dr. Michael Lewis.

You can find Doctor’s Best Products at many health food stores and online.

To receive the free book, please click on the link and fill in the email. This will send your request directly to Doctor’s Best.

Best wishes to you and your son.

PLEASE tell me PHOSPHAtidyline can help me restore damage to brain from long term srtess and to be able to handle stress better mentally


13 Steve Lankford March 9, 2013 at 7:17 pm

I can’t tell you what your results may be.Brain damage and long term stress can have many factors. That being said, PS is an important component of brain cell membranes. It should be helpful. You could consider other important brain nutrients as well such as DHA, GPC, SAMe would be others you could consider. Please listen to the other interviews with Dr. Kidd on these nutrients as he explains their benefits and how much to use. Dr. Kidd will tell you these nutrients helped him recover from severe stress and brain issues. No one can pedicte your results but these nutrients are foundational for better brain health. Good luck and best wishes.

I have been taking Phosphatidylserine for 8 months.
I had surgery for a brain stem meningioma several years ago and have struggled with memory problems since .
PS has made a world of difference for me.
