Jarrow Formulas PS-100 Phosphatidylserine -- 100 mg - 120 Capsules
Has really helped my memory for 8 years now
I started taking phosphatidylserine 8 years ago on recommendation by a nurse-practitioner when my memory (initially helped by other mid-life supplementation) started to get spotty again. When I told her how much it helped, she said, "It doesn't work for all my patients, but when it does, it works really well." I now buy Jarrow PS-100 because their other products are clearly better than other brands so I trust them, the cost-benefit ratio is good, and it performs at least as well as two other brands I've tried.
I don't think the effect is just placebo. Twice during the first couple of years (at long intervals), when I was extremely busy at a new job in a new city, I forgot to hunt down some more and ran out. Both times, I didn't realize I'd run out until I forgot something really major and suddenly remembered! A couple of days after resuming the PS-100, I could actually feel my brain being blank and then searching, sifting until it found the memory.
By the way, I've consume good oils in quantity all these years (olive, stir-fry tea oil, flax, sometimes canola, safflower, soy), so even though this is "just" a distillate of, I think it's soy oil, it does things the oils alone have not.

Works for me
I've tried 5 or 6 different brands of PS100 and Jarrow works the best for me.

able to recall and stay on task
3oo mg daily. I didn't notice the improvement immediately this time but since I had used it effectively before, I kept on taking it. I can now expect my brain to respond with greater accuracy and to be able to recall 50% better; that can be the ultimate gift to give yourself.

I like the PS 100 liquid tabs better.
I like the PS 100 product very much, but I don't like the power capsules as much as the liquid caps. The powder cap is harder to swallow.

I have used this product in the past and felt it did WORK. Now it is backordered.
