JACKSON, Wyo. — What do Japan and Jackson Hole have in common besides great skiing…? Cognition health.

Both the village of Ogimi and the community of Jackson Hole have tapped into the brain-protecting benefits of L-Serine.

What is L-Serine?

L-Serine is an amino acid important for central nervous system and proper brain development, and a very cool lab here in Jackson has conducted extensive scientific research around how amino acids – including L-Serine – impact brain cells. This important research involves the mechanisms of neuroprotection, how our brains produce thoughts, memories and ideas; and more importantly, how to protect them. And by “protect,” Serine10 isn’t talking helmets, they’re talking neurons.

So, back to Japan. The southern islands at the end of this country have historically been known for longevity. Okinawans have less cancer, heart disease and dementia than Americans, and women there live longer than women anywhere else on the planet.

This is due to a number of factors, and Serine10 believes that one factor is the amount of Serine in their diet. Okinawa natives consume eight or more grams of Serine as part of their daily dietary intake. They have remarkable cognitive health, well into their senior years. In comparison, the Western diet delivers on average two to three grams of Serine per day.

We can advance our L-Serine intake through our diet: foods that are rich in L-Serine include egg whites, soy protein, seeds and tofu, for example. Alternatively, supplementing your diet with Serine10 will ensure adequate levels of L-Serine in the brain.

Queue the Serine10 stick-pack! Serine10 is convenient access to a daily dose of 10 grams of L-Serine powder. It’s simple to take: no bulk, bags or scoops. The powder dissolves easily into any beverage or smoothie, or can be sprinkled on the gnosh.
