Why serine? Why us?

Why serine? Why us?

Twenty-two years ago I learned the importance of Serine in the human body. First, my daughter was born with “an inborn error of serine deficiency.” Then, two years later, the same with my son. They were actually not diagnosed for a few years, and until then there was nothing in the medical literature about the problem. It is now known as 3-Phosphoglycerate dehydrogenase (3-PGDH) deficiency, their mother and I are genetic carriers.

Serine, in the quantities we needed, was hard to find and expensive.

Many years later, my mother and I both were diagnosed with peripheral neuropathy. Neither of us have diabetes, we are not overweight, and have none of the usual markers. After discussing with several doctors, I experimented and found that L-Serine greatly helped both of us! I am part of a study now.

Owning a supplement company helps. Now we are selling pharmaceutical grade L-Serine, we get it direct from the manufacturer, and full assays are available if needed. We package it in the quantity you need, at affordable prices.

    • The pharmaceutical grade L-Serine is produced in the United States from non-animal materials.

      The food grade L-Serine is produced in China. We offer it because of the price differential that some customers need. We are continually on the look out for a domestic supplier.

  1. Do you know the snp that this mutation is carried on? I have done 23&me and have access to my dna but I need to know what the reference to see if I am a carrier.

  2. I am still trying to figure this out. I took a functional blood test and they said I was deficient in serine Their recommendation was to take 1000 mg daily. Since I also carry two gens of the Apoe4 mutation I believe I should be taking serine. 1/4 teaspoon would provide that?
