GLOSSARY
L-PHENYLALANINE

L-Phenylalanine

 

How does it work?

L-phenylalanine is an essential amino acid required for its role in the central nervous system through the action of crossing the blood-brain barrier and converting into another amino acid, tyrosine.1 Tyrosine is used to synthesise dopamine and norepinephrine, two neurotransmitters needed to promote alertness and elevate mood, as well as supporting the production of thyroid hormones.2 L-phenylalanine is used supplementally to treat mood, pain, memory and learning and suppress the appetite.3 Some studies have shown it may also assist in treating depression, mood disorders, Parkinson’s disease, arthritis and alcohol withdrawal symptoms.4

What results can be expected?

L-phenylalanine may assist in improving neurotransmitter function in the brain and therefore assist in treating conditions needing mood and cognitive support and pain reduction.5 L-phenylalanine also converts into tyrosine which is needed for healthy thyroid function.6
