Phenylalanine is a building block that the body uses to make proteins. Unfortunately‚ you have to get it through foods or supplements‚ since the body is unable to produce it naturally.
dl-Phenylalanine by Pure Encapsulations actually contains a blend of two essential amino acids to maximize potential effectiveness. These amino acids are l-phenylalanine (which is the form found in dietary sources) and d-phenylalanine (a mirror image of the former that is made in a lab; since they are well-tolerated by the body‚ this supplement is unlikely to cause uncomfortable side effects.
As a precursor to the amino acid tyrosine‚ l-Phenylalanine may end up increasing levels of some important neurotransmitters. Tyrosine is converted into norepinephrine‚ epinephrine‚ tyramine‚ and dopamine by the body. These metabolites may end up boosting memory‚ learning‚ and cognitive functioning. (On the other hand‚ signs of a mild deficiency can include decreased alertness‚ confusing‚ or trouble remembering things.) At the same time‚ tyrosine can support emotional well-being.
In addition‚ dl-Phenylalanine may also have benefits for your musculoskeletal system. By working to regulate the levels of certain endorphins‚ the d-phenylalaine in this supplement may relax and calm joints or muscles that are stressed‚ getting that stiffness off your mind.
d-Phenylalanine and l-Phenylalanine work in combination to help you maintain a positive mood. This support for emotional wellness may allow you to keep your mind on focusing on the tasks you need to perform on a daily basis.
Take four to six capsules daily‚ in divided doses between meals. At the recommended dosage‚ each 90-capsule bottle of Pure Encapsulations' dl-Phenylalanine should last for about 15 to 22 days.
