  • Amino acids serve as the building blocks of protein. There are two essential amino acids that may support your overall well-being‚ which your body is unable to produce on its own. These amino acids are l-phenylalanine and d-phenylalanine. The former serves as a precursor to tyrosine; tyrosine is converted into important neurotransmitters such as norepinephrine‚ epinephrine‚ and dopamine. As a result‚ l-phenylalanine may promote a better mood‚ increased cognitive ability (allowing you to learn things more quickly)‚ and improved memory.

    Meanwhile‚ d-phenylalanine may work to alleviate stress on the muscles and joints that causes discomfort. This is because it contributes to increasing endorphin levels just like exercise‚ and endorphins make you happy. Unlike l-phenylalanine‚ d-phenylalanine is created in a laboratory and may be more helpful in certain ways.

    Good dietary sources of l-phenylalanine are dairy products like milk and cheese; as well as eggs‚ fish‚ and meats. Signs of a deficiency may include fatigue‚ confusion‚ forgetfulness‚ or a decrease in alertness. All of these symptoms can negatively impact your daily life.

    Since both of these amino acids are well-tolerated by the stomach‚ combining them in one capsule like Pure Encapsulations' dl-Phenylalanine is a convenient solution. This supplement supports your mind and your musculoskeletal system with a 50:50 ratio. It also contains fat-soluble vitamin C to further promote absorption. One capsule provides 500 milligrams of dl-phenylalanine.

    Take four to six vegetable capsules daily‚ in divided doses between meals. At the recommended dosage‚ each 180-capsule bottle of dl-Phenylalanine by Pure Encapsulations should last from 30 to 45 days.

    Pure Encapsulations seeks to formulate and manufacture high-quality‚ hypoallergenic dietary supplements. Quality control during the formulation and manufacturing process is paramount. All Pure Encapsulations products are made with the most bioavailable ingredients possible.

    Able to throw my depression meds out

    I ordered dl-phenylalanine for depression and it works great for me. I have not taken anti-depressant drugs for years since going on DL-Phenylalanine and I have had lifelong depression struggles since my teens. Its just amino acids--so maybe I am deficient somehow. All I know is it works. Believe it or not dl-phen works even better for me than pharmaceutical anti-depressants with which I always still felt a little down; not quiet normal. But the dl-phen brings me right up to normal. I also had the added problem of getting used to the various anti-depressants and had to keep switching up to more expensive ones. I have never had this problem with dl-phen--probably because it is natural and my body does not build up a tolerance because DL-Phenylalanine is a natural substance. Dl-phen has not worked for me for anxiety but chasing away the depression has been MAJOR. A naturopath doctor spotted the dl-phen in a multi-vitamin supplement I was taking that was designed for mental health issues and told me it would be less expensive just to get the dl-phenylalanine. He was right--it works just as well for me. I stay on it and I am good to go. One note--if you try DL-Phenylalanine you should NOT go off your anti-depressant right away. If you start to feel better with the dl-phen talk with your doctor about slowly reducing your anti-depressant to see if you can wean off. I could feel the effects within days but give it longer--you might as well finish the bottle. I take Pure Encapsulations and have settled on a maintenance dose of 2 a day. The strength is not listed on the front--I think they just make one. You can look at the product info for details.

    I would recommend this item to a friend.

    DL-Phenylalanine Works

    DL-Phenylalanine definitely contributes to a more positive and serene outlook when I take it daily. Its like an "aaahhh" for my nerves; that is the only way I know to describe it.

    I would recommend this item to a friend.
