Twinlab - Dl-Phenylalanine Free Form Amino Acid 500 mg. - 60 Capsules

Twin Lab DL-Phenylalanine (DLPA) produces and maintains an elevated and positive mood, alertness and ambition. It enhances learning and memory, produces neurotransmitters which control impulse transmission between nerve cells, and is involved in dopamine transmission. Also used in the treatment of certain types of depression and to suppress appetite. Each capsule provides 500 mg DL-phenylalanine as a 50/50 (equimolar) mixture of D-Phenylalanine and L-Phenylalanine.

Twinlab DLPA capsules aer easy to swallow and more bioavailable. Well tolerated by highly allergic individuals. No tablet binders, coatings or colorings. No added corn, soy, yeast, rice, barley, wheat, lactose (milk sugar) and all milk, citrus, fish, egg products, flavorings, salt, artificial sweeteners, colorings, preservatives or salicylates. This product is manufactured at Twinlab's own state-of-the-art facility.

About DLPA
DL-Phenylalanine (DLPA) is marketed as a nutritional supplement for its supposed analgesic and antidepressant activities. DL-Phenylalanine is a mixture of D-Phenylalanine and L-Phenylalanine. The reputed analgesic activity of DL-phenylalanine may be explained by the possible blockage by D-phenylalanine of enkephalin (endorphin) degradation by the enzyme carboxypeptidase A. The mechanism of DL-phenylalanine's supposed antidepressant activity may be accounted for by the precursor role of L-phenylalanine in the synthesis of the neurotransmitters norepinephrine and dopamine. Elevated brain levels of norepinephrine and dopamine are thought to have an antidepressant effect.

Also, as DL-phenylalanine inhibits endorphin degradation, this leads to an inhibition of GABA release in the ventral tegmental neurons (in the midbrain), which results in greater dopamine release. This can explain the analgesic effects following ingestion, D-Phenylalanine is absorbed from the small intestine and transported to the liver via the portal circulation. A small amount of D-phenylalanine appears to be converted to L-phenylalanine. D-Phenylalanine is distributed to the various tissues of the body via the systemic circulation. It appears to cross the blood-brain barrier less efficiently than L-phenylalanine, and so a small amount of an ingested dose of D-phenylalanine is excreted in the urine without penetrating the central nervous system.

By Leigh Anne (Cordova , TN )

I am taking this for depression. I have both anxiety and depression and it actually seems to help with my anxiety. I was told that this shouldn't help that, but it seems to help. When I take DLPA, I am able to take less of another supplement that I take for anxiety that is very expensive, but works wonders.

I RECOMMEND THIS PRODUCT!

I have not been on this long enough to see if it actually helps me or not. I bought it to help with fatigue caused by my low thyroid (hashimotos) and to help keep me in a more brighter mood. I think it will take a few weeks to see a difference.
