    Dietary supplement

    D-phenylalanine is a non-protein amino acid related to the essential amino acid L-phenylalanine. D- and L-phenylalanine are structural mirror images of each other. A small amount of D-phenylalanine may be converted to L-phenylalanine in the body. D-phenylalanine is reported to inhibit an enzyme that degrades enkephalins‚ which are naturally occurring substances in the body that belong to the class of compounds known as "endorphins.

    BAD FOR BIPOLAR DISORDER

    I tried just one pill of Doctor's Best D-Phenylalanine in the morning, and I found myself very irritated, edgy, agitated for the entire day and night. (Mania in Bipolar can show as euphoric/elated or very irritable.) This definitely triggered irritable mania in me. I have read in online article that it is bad for Bipolar Disorder but hoped the increase in endorphins would improve my mood. Not the case with this supplement. But this should be good for muscle pain especially for those with MS. Better for Bipolar are inositol, choline bitartrate, cod liver oil, amino acids, mineral formula, lithium orotate, Magnesium, vitamin D3, and especially "Daily Essential Nutrients" by Hardy Nutritionals. With Bipolar or Mood disorders: Definitely check your levels of thyroid (TSH, Free-T3, Free-T4), Vit D (the NEWER test), Magnesium RBC, blood sugar issues, iron/ferritin, electrolytes, protein, loading iodine test, hormonal levels.


    Pros

      It should be a very good form of phenylalanine for most people with muscle pain, especially in MS, as it is much less stimulating to them. Compliments LDN (Low Dose Naltrexone) treatment for MS.

    Cons

      Contraindicated for Bipolar Disorder.

    Take to get a lift in mood

    I usually take this in the morning before breakfast and before lunch to increase endorphins and raise my mood. It works and I would not live without it. I encourage you to take with a bit of something sweet like a sip of juice to help the body absorb and use it.


    Pros

      easy to take and it works great

    Cons


    I would recommend this item to a friend.

    AMAZING SUPPLEMENT

    I take this supplement 3 times a day everyday. It helped with my recovery off of opiates. On top of that I take it everyday to reduce cravings for junk food and opiates. It also helps tremendously with my chronic pain. I recommend this supplement to anyone with pain or endorphin issues.

    So far so good

    Will know more later I also use low dose naltrexone (LDN) for auto immune health keeping endorphin levels increased is one key to immune health.

    Take for a sharp mind!

    I purchased this after researching the mind and our moods etc. I read you can even take this before bed to help remember the dreams you have. And just general sharpness of the mind. Good stuff.
