Seriphos® phosphorylated serine - adaptogen and adrenal formulation
Seriphos® contains pure phosphorylated serine and ethanolamide phosphates (magnesium and calcium). These substances are building blocks for the production of the phospholipids in cell membranes: phosphatidylserine and phosphatidylethanolamine. The synergy of these ingredients ensures optimal absorption and bioavailability. Seriphos® is a powerful adaptogen and is physiologically active in the brain.
Seriphos® facilitates falling asleep faster and promotes a natural and healthy night's sleep when taken during the evening or at bedtime. Seriphos® promotes physical and mental balance when taken during the day.
Phosphorylated serine versus phosphatidylserine
Absorption of phosphorylated serine, unlike that of phosphatidylserine, does not depend on enzymes in the gastrointestinal tract. It is therefore more effective and easier to absorb. Phosphorylated serine is also the active form and not a precursor, meaning that the body can use it directly. Generally, phosphatidylserine products yield only 20 mg of activated serine per capsule. However, Seriphos® provides 90 mg of active serine per capsule.
Phosphorylated serine as an adaptogen
Adaptogens are substances that are known for their ability to positively influence homeostasis (overall physical balance). They adapt to current needs of the body. A characteristic of adaptogens is that the effect does not target only one specific organ or a specific part of the body. The effect is widespread: akin to a hail shot affecting several parts of the body at the same time. The uniqueness of an adaptogenic substance is that it adapts to the state that is currently playing in the body and indenting on it.
Brain versus adrenal glands
The adrenal glands are responsible for the production of important hormones, including cortisol, aldosterone, DHEA, adrenaline and norepinephrine. These hormones play a specific role in the nervous system. The hippocampus, a region in the brain, controls the adrenal glands and determines the release rate of, for example, cortisol. Focusing on both areas is more effective than choosing one or the other.
What is L-Serine?
Serine is a non-essential amino acid that (by definition) is produced from other amino acids, in particular glycine. Although it has been discovered more than 150 years ago, the knowledge about this amino acid is rather limited. L-serine’s key functions have been mapped out, but there is still a lot to discover. It is known that L-serine plays a role in, for example, the brain, the nervous system more generally and in metabolism most generally. Serine works as a master precursor of body substances or as a building block for cells and fatty acids. A good example of this is the formation of phosphatidylserine from serine and glycerol.
What is ethanolamine?
Ethanolamine is both a primary amine compound and a primary alcohol compound. The biological role of ethanolamine in the body is very interesting and well documented. It is essential for life and is present in every cell of the human body, especially as a leading group of phosphoethanolamine and other fats. In varying quantities throughout the body it is also present as free ethanolamine. Mammals cannot produce ethanolamine themselves. The body is dependent on dietary ethanolamine intake.
