Hello and Welcome to ‘Ask A Doctor’ service.
I have reviewed your query and here is my advice.

Phosphatidylserine (PS) are the second most frequently endorsed substances for older adults with memory complaints by proprietors of dietary supplements.
Both are phospholipids you may take it but no studies are supported that one is superior than other.

Hope I have answered your query.
Let me know if I can assist you further.
