DL-Phenylalanine (DLPA)

Dl-phenylalanine (DLPA) has several functions and health benefits. DLPA (DL-Phenylalanine) is a mixture of the natural form of phenylalanine (the L form) and its mirror image (the D form). DLPA / DL-phenylalanine may have the unique ability to block certain enzymes (enkephalinase) in the central nervous system that are normally responsible for breaking down natural morphine-like hormones called endorphins and enkephalins. DL-Phenylalanine (DLPA) is therefore a nutritional supplement that sometimes has been used as a supportive nutrient for people with different forms of pain related health problems. The reputed activity of DL-phenylalanine may be explained by the possible blockage by D-phenylalanine of enkephalin degradation by the enzyme carboxypeptidase A. The mechanism of DL-phenylalanine's mood lifting 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 a positive effect on your mental well-being. DLPA (Dl-phenylalanine ) 500mg Vegetable Capsules is one of Solgar's high quality amino acids.
