Just received my order of PS today. Any thoughts on when I should time the dose (or doses) if taking 1,600 mg per day? I work out in the evening (and have capsules that are 550 mg each). I was thinking of taking one capsule early in the day (post-breakfast) and the other 2 an hour or so after working out. Any thoughts on that, given Lockwood’s article? Thanks.

Dave are you saying 1600mg for 2 weeks or 800mg for 2 weeks as being the double dosage? How much would you recomend for someone at 215lbs?
1600mg is the double dose, because most recommendations are for 800mg (based on studies using people with less muscle mass).
I’d use a double dose because you’re sure to see an effect with it after 2 weeks (in Damici’s case, or caladin if in the same situation), if you’re ever going to see one. If there’s no effect then you can be sure that it is the supplement and not the dosage.
It’s about as good of a control as we can get with ourselves.
Are you sure they’re 550mg each? Mine for example says,
Each softgel contains:
500 mg of enriched phospholipid complex providing:
Phosphatidylserine (PS)… 100 mg
Just wondering if in fact they are around 100mg instead of 550mg.
