L-SERINE is required for the metabolism of fat, tissue growth and the immune system as it assists in the production of immunoglobulins and antibodies. Some derivatives (e.g. ethanolamine) are also important components of the phospholipids found in biological membranes. It is a constituent of brain proteins and nerve coverings and is also important in the formation of cell membranes, involved in the metabolism of purines and pyrimidines, and muscle synthesis. It is also used in cosmetics as a skin moisturizer.
Directions: Take 1-3 capsules per day or as recommended by a health care professional. L-SERINE should be taken with vitamins and minerals. Tyson’s MVM (Multivitamin) is highly recommended. Powder equivalent is 1/4th level teaspoon for each capsule.
