L-Phenylalanine Benefits

L-Phenylalanine is an essential amino acid that converts to Tyrosine, helping to elevate catecholamine neurotransmitters. It has been used in the treatment of depression, and may be helpful with those with Parkinson's Disease and Multiple Sclerosis. It also helps in appetite suppression.

L-Phenylalanine is an essential amino acid; therefore, it cannot be synthesized from other amino acids and must be obtained in the diet from food sources or through supplementation. The primary sources of foods that contain Phenylalanine are meats and milk products, although smaller amounts are found in oats and wheat germ. It can cross the blood brain barrier, thus effecting brain chemistry. As the precursor to Tyrosine, it is necessary in the function of catecholamine neurotransmitters epinephrine, norepinephrine, dopamine and Tyramine, as well as the manufacturing of thyroxine and tri-iodothyronine in the thyroid gland. Vitamins and minerals are necessary for proper metabolism, and B6, B3, vitamin C, copper and iron are required. Because of its effects on neurotransmitters, supplementation can help alter mood and it has been used as an anti-depressive. It can effect alertness and may be useful in neurological problems such as Parkinson's disease and MS. Phenylalanine is also involved in melanin production, and those who can not convert Phenylalanine to Tyrosine due to a heredity problem have a metabolic defect called phenylketonuria (PKU).

Phenylalanine stimulates the production of cholecystokinin, which induces satiety. Since this promotes the feeling of having eaten enough, Phenylalanine may be useful to obese individuals and those who are on a weight reduction program. (Take 1-2 mid morning and mid afternoon). In addition, a recent double blind study examined changes in body composition during an 4-week diet and exercise program in those taking a compound of L- Phenylalanine and lipotropic nutrients. The results indicated that the supplementation accelerated the rate of body fat loss and helped maintain lean body mass.
