Enzymotec Cognitive Products Achieve Halal Status

08 Jul 2011 --- This important certification verifies that Enzymotec, as the leading supplier of phosphatidylserine, is producing in conformity with the preparation and ingredient standards of the Halal lifestyle and that Enzymotec is permitted to display the “Crescent M Halal” logo on the products.

7/8/2011 --- Enzymotec is proud to announce that its SharpPS (phosphatidylserine) line of cognitive products used in dietary supplements is now certified by the Islamic Food and Nutrition Council of America (IFANCA) as Halal.

This important certification verifies that Enzymotec, as the leading supplier of phosphatidylserine, is producing in conformity with the preparation and ingredient standards of the Halal lifestyle and that Enzymotec is permitted to display the “Crescent M Halal” logo on the products.

IFANCA Halal certification provides an independent third party quality assurance step valued by conscientious consumers.

Phosphatidylserine (PS) is one of the most researched ingredients shown to be potent for cognitive activity. Through clinical data obtained by Enzymotec and others, PS was shown to be beneficial for cognitive functions such as concentration, focus, learning, memory and to significantly improve cognitive ability in elderly adults with memory complaints.

Phosphatidylserine is one of the body's major building blocks. It is a natural nutrient found in the cell membrane and particularly abundant in the brain. Phosphatidylserine has a crucial contribution to the structure and function of the nerve cells, and as suggested by its high abundance in the brain, has a crucial role in the maintenance of nerve cell function, such as neurotransmission of specialized chemicals, signal propagation and more.

PS is the only cognitive bioactive ingredient that has been granted with a qualified health claim by the FDA, related to cognitive dysfunction and dementia in the elderly.

Sharp PS is a high purity phosphatidylserine (PS) brand, developed and produced by Enzymotec under the highest quality and safety standards.

Being the leading supplier of PS, Enzymotec is developing and providing second generation PS products including Sharp PS Gold and Sharp PS Green.
