Thank you for all the information.

Phosphatidyl serine is a supplement.

It may help in elderly people with memory loss, Alzheimer’s disease.

There is insufficient evidence of effectiveness in ADHD.

Moreover, it is is not evaluated by FDA.

So, you should not use it for your son.
I hope this information helps.

If there’s anything else I can do, please let me know.
