Dr. Michael Murray, a well-recognized N.D. (Doctor of Naturopathy) wrote an article on a new promising supplement which is receiving attention for the treatment of ALS (aka Lou Gehrig’s Disease) as well as Alzheimer’s, Parkinson’s, and general prevention of neurological decline. Some of the leading Functional Medicine protocols for neurological decline such as Dr. Dale Bredesen at Apollo Health recommend phosphatidyserine supplementation along with many other aspects of the protocol.
Phosphatidyserine is currently being successfully used in the treatment of cognitive impairment. It appears that L-Serine in new trials is proving to be an even more effective supplement for dealing with the tangles that are a symptom of neurological decline, or in the case of healthy elderly individuals, useful for prevention. It will take time for this to receive mainstream attention as no pharmaceutical company stands to benefit from something they can’t patent! Meanwhile, enlightened Functional Medicine practitioners are forging ahead. Really worth your attention!
