The pain reliever DLPA (D,L-phenylalanine) contains two forms of the amino acid phenylalanine. The "L" form is a natural substance found in Protein-rich foods; it's believed to bolster mood-elevating chemicals in the brain, such as dopamine and norepinephrine. The "D" form of phenylalanine, on the other hand, is made synthetically in a laboratory; it appears to block a nervous system enzyme that amplifies pain signals.
DLPA supplements combine the "L" and "D" forms of phenylalanine, packing a potent one-two punch, and quickly relieving minor depression and physical discomforts.
Research indicates that DLPA can be an effective part of an overall program to fight chronic pain and beat the blues, including the mood swings of premenstrual syndrome (PMS). Some sources contend that DLPA can increase energy and mental alertness, as well as heighten the ability to focus in individuals with attention deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD).
Each cap contains:
- 1000mg DLPA
- 10mg B6 (as pyridoxine HCl). B-6 aids in the utilization of Phenylalanine.
