DL-Phenylalanine (DLPA) contains both the essential amino acid L-phenylalanine and D-phenylalanine. Studies have shown that L-phenylalanine can elevate the mood, making DLPA a useful agent in combating low mood states. DLPA can also be used for those with chronic discomfort since it supports the body’s natural pain-killing response.
• DL-Phenylalanine is an amino acid supplement to support comfort and mood balance.

• DLPA supports and may prolong the body’s own natural pain killing response. The brain responds to pain signals by producing and activating morphine like hormones called ENDORPHINS. The ENDORPHIN system is responsible for the loss of pain sensation.
DL-Phenylalanine may inhibit enzymes which are responsible for the destruction of the body’s pain killing hormones. When these enzymes are inhibited, the brains own naturally produced endorphins have a longer life span and exert comfort promoting actions for long periods.
• Low Mood States
DLPA supports the production of PEA (Phenylethylamine). PEA is a neurotransmitter type substance, which bears a close structural resemblance to the stimulant drug Amphetamine. A deficiency in PEA in the nervous system is thought to cause low mood states.DLPA supports proper endorphine levels. Phenylalanine’s have the ability to inhibit enzymes which break down the endorphin hormones. Endorphin is a hormone-like substance whose presence may account for the euphoria experienced by runners, joggers, etc. Endorphin levels in the brain can be critical in mood regulation. DLPA supports norepinephrine production. Phenylalanine converts to the neurotransmitter Norepinephrine. Norepinephrine was the first brain chemical deficiency believed to be involved with severe low mood states. Most anti-depressant drugs are designed to increase the amount of Norepinephrine in the central nervous system, but by very different means.
