L-serine is used as a dietary supplement to improve health under certain conditions of malnutrition or physical stress, as a cosmetic incredient, as ingredients for cell culture media. It is used as a precursor to several amino acids, including glycine, cysteine and other metabolites such as sphingolipids and folate. It is used in bio-synthesis of purines and pyrimidines. It plays a vital role in catalytic function of enzymes. Further, L-serine and its metabolic products are essential for cell proliferation and specific functions of the central nervous system. .
