DL-Phenylalanine from DaVinci Laboratories is an amino acid supplement to support comfort and proper mood balance.
DL-Phenylalanine contains the essential amino acid L-phenylalanine, a natural mood enhancer, and D-phenylalanine.
DL-Phenylalanine may increase the production of phenylethylamine, which resembles the stimulant drug amphetamine. A phenylethylamine deficiency may cause poor mood states.
Phenylalanine amino acids may also inhibit the breakdown of endorphin, a hormone-line substance that might possibly account for the euphoria experienced by runners.
And DL-Phenylalanine may improve mood naturally in a third way: supporting norepinephrine production. Phenylalanine converts to the neurotransmitter norepinephrine, 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.
Meanwhile, DL-Phenylalanine may also help those with chronic discomfort or pain by supporting and prolonging the body's own natural pain killing response.
The brain responds to pain signals by producing and activating the morphine like endorphins, mentioned earlier. The endorphin system is responsible for the loss of pain sensation.
DL-Phenylalanine may inhibit enzymes responsible for the destruction of the body's pain killing hormones. When these enzymes are inhibited, the brain's naturally produced endorphins have a longer life span and exert comfort promoting actions for long periods.
