D,L-Phenylalanine Capsules, 500 mg 100 vegetarian capsules, Item# 01671 - 2 Bottle TwinPak
D,L-Phenylalanine Capsules are a 50/50 blend of the D-and L-forms of phenylalanine. D-phenylalanine is used to relieve pain. L-phenylalanine is used as an appetite suppressant, stimulant and antidepressant.
Phenylalanine is used by the brain to produce norepinephrine, a hormone depleted by stress, overwork and certain drugs. One to two capsules are usually taken upon awakening, on an empty stomach. Phenylalanine should be used with caution by people with hypertension, as it may raise blood pressure in some individuals.
If you have hypertension, you may wish to monitor your blood pressure with a home blood pressure monitor kit when starting out with small doses of phenylalanine. Phenylalanine should also be avoided by cancer patients.Supplement FactsServing size:
