L-Serine is an amino acid which supports neuron proliferation and health. It also supports the production of purines, pyrimdines, and important amino acids such as Tryptophan, L-Cystine, and Glycine. L-Serine also supports the proliferation and maintenance of new cells.
While the body does produce some L-Serine, it does not do so in high enough quantities to meet all the body’s demand for it so an external supply from diet or supplementation is recommended.
While we typically don’t recommend a dosage of over 6,000 mg per day there have been studies showing its safe use at dosages as high as 15,000 mg per day. We recommend avoiding doses this high as there is a much higher potential for side effects.
