Happy in a bottle
March 16, 2013
My ND recommended D,L-Phenylalanine to me as part of my pre-menopause plan to help with minor mood swings. It has brought me back to the happy calm person I remember! She said if I need them, I would feel the difference right away (I did indeed!) and if I didn't, I would not feel a change, so I had my husband take one as an experiment (he was not experiencing the mood/depression that I was) and he did not notice a thing...
Pros:If you are lacking the amino-acids these pills contain you will notice a mood elevation with in 15min. that lasts all day (at least for me is does). If you don't need them you will not notice any change in mood at all.
Cons:Some people aparently need to take 2 per day at intervals to reach max benifits, I only need 1. Go to an MD or a ND 1st to see if thats what they recommend because if you don't need these aminos they will not work for you (duh right?)
