IMPORTANTI have personally found that L-tyrosine is a better way of increasing dopamine or nor/epinephrin when there is a deficiency. Some people have a genetic defect where they lack to enzymes to convert L-phenylalanine and it ends up building up in their body, causing toxic effects. For this reason, L-Tyrosine seems to be a safer alternative. The cool thing about tyrosine too is that it only has a therapuetic effect if there is indeed a deficiency. I'ts effect is dependent on where it is needed most in the body. The issue is, you can eat all the amino acid precursor in the word, but if you are deficient in one or more of the other enzymatic cofacters you need to make neurotransmitters (B6[pyridoxine], B12, Zinc, Magnesium etc) Then you'll still have trouble manufacturing enough. Also, it's important to consume tryptophan/5-htp in balanced ratios to phenylalanine/tyrosine because they compete for the same pathway, and eating a ton of 1 precursor
There are 2 types of phenylalanine, the L form, and the DL form. DL Phenylalanine is known as DLPA. It acts as a mild sedative, and a natural opioid pain reliever by binding to the same receptors that pharmaceutical opioids (oramorph, etc.) bind to. If you take L Phenylalanine at night, it will keep you awake, all night, so don’t get the 2 forms mixed up! LPA is stimulating, DLPA is sedative and a pain reliever. I take either 500mg, or 1g, depending on how tired I am and how much I have to do that day. It benefits me.
I've been taking L-Phenylalanine for a while now and it's made a noticeable difference. I actually use it with other supplements for an even bigger boost. I find that combining it with B-Vitamins, 5-HTP and Magnesium works great. It helps me stay focused, in a good mood and overall just more alert during the day. The quality of the product is top-notch and I would definitely purchase it again. I highly recommend it for anyone looking for a natural boost and I would suggest trying it with the supplements I mentioned for an even better result.
I can honestly say this product is a life savior for me and my family. I would be a totally angry, not-at-all-nice person without this amino acid. I have tried different brands to see how they would work or if I've been traveling and run out, but keep coming back to this one, it seems to suit my body.
L-phenylalanine is a great benefit to your nervous system. The composition of the capsules are made with quality ingredients. So the size of the capsules are easy to swallow and have no taste. L-phenylalanine can benefit weight, mood, energy and skin. It’s great to add to your diet in between meals.
I started using L-Phenylaline a year or more ago now. I added it when I learned that this product helps the body to manufacture dopamine, and thus, it helps to boost a person's positive mood and energy level. I prefer taking this in the capsule version, so this brand and product works well for me. I appreciate the low cost and ease at which I can order a large quantity at once. This allows me to order less frequently. I do recommend this product and brand.
I take two weeks. I am satisfied with the quality, this is not the first drug I drink from this company. I like the size of the package, the capsules are protected from light. For those who are on a Diet and in a Workout mode - this is what you need! I take it with Tyrosine. As such, the capsules have no taste, it is easy to swallow. The benefits for the nervous system are obvious, it balances emotionality, but at the same time Energy and cheerfulness are felt. I ordered two packages at once, the price and Quality are quite satisfied.
“I wish that I knew what I know now when I was younger” Man, for years I thought my low energy and mood was serotonin based, so I used 5-HTP and it mostly didn’t work. I also thought i might havre adhd, but now I realize that my diet was not providing enough l-phenylalanine. Once I started taking this my adhd-like symptoms disappeared and my mood lifted. My anxiety went away, too. I also like supplementing with dlpa to boost endorphins.
Great quality product. It really works as intended. Will definitely get more soon. Thank you so much for this. It was made out of high quality ingredients. Looking forward to purchasing another one. I love it. The size, package and taste are great. I use it everyday with breakfast. Nice. Good for my immune system.
