DL Phenylalanine is an essential amino acid comprised of both L-Phenylalanine (ingested naturally from food) and D-Phenylalanine (manufactured in a laboratory).
As a supplement, DL Phenylalanine can treat confusion, energy deficiency, depression, poor alertness, memory problems and poor appetite.
For weight loss, Phenylalanine is the most effective amino acid, acting as an appetite suppressant by inhibiting hunger signals to the brain. The compound also helps produce neurotransmitters in the brain responsible for optimising brain function. Likewise, evidence suggests it can reduce symptoms of Parkinson’s disease and ADHD.
A building block of dopamine, responsible for mood levels, Phenylalanine is an effective anti-depressant whilst also aiding the production of melatonin which aids our sleeping patterns.
