Vitacost DLPA DL-Phenylalanine Description

Free form amino acid. Supplies both the D and L forms of phenylalanine. Helps the body cope with stress and supports elevated moods.*


What is Vitacost DLPA DL-Phenylalanine?


Vitacost DLPA DL-Phenylalanine is a combination of the D and L forms of the amino acid phenylalanine. Phenylalanine is an essential amino acid, meaning the body needs it, but can’t make it on its own—it must be obtained through diet. Foods such as meat, poultry, fish, milk, eggs and cheese are good sources of phenylalanine.


L-phenylalanine is a precursor to neurochemicals and hormones such as dopamine, epinephrine, norepinephrine, adrenaline and noradrenaline, which are released during times of stress or excitement. Adrenal hormones help the body prepare for action during times of fight or flight. Neurochemicals give rise to feelings of euphoria, happiness and mood elevation.*


D-phenylalanine is known to block the activity of carboxypeptidase, an enzyme which degrades enkephalins, which are morphine-like substances that gives marathon runners what’s known as “runner’s high.” Phenylalanine also synthesizes phenylethylamine, the molecule found in chocolate that is responsible for pleasurable effects on mood.*


Phenylalanine is also a precursor to tyrosine, which aids in the function of the thyroid hormone production. Phenylalanine has also been shown to stimulate the release of the intestinal hormone cholesystokinin (CCK), which tells the brain when you have eaten enough food or have the sensation of fullness. Cholesystokinin helps a person feel satisfied or satiated, which can help lessen the desire for eating a second helping.*

too many fillers This product have too many fillers, Vita Cost brand is not as good of quality as NSI! September 13, 2011
phenyllalanine is poor pfroduct is worthless June 30, 2011
This doesn't work as well I've bought various dl-phenylanine products, bulk and in capsules, and the only one I've found to do what has been claimed is Source Naturals tablets. I don't know if it is getting further along in my digestive track or what, but it works and all the others I've tried don't including NSI, I'm not saying it's bad for the price it's good and it could very well work for someone else, but just not me!
