DLPA (L-Phenylalanine) is an important constituent in neurotransmitters (brain chemical messengers).It is biologically converted into L-tyrosine, another one of the DNA-encoded amino acids. L-tyrosine in turn is converted into L-DOPA, which is further converted into dopamine, noradrenaline, and adrenaline. The latter three are known as the catecholamines.
Phenylalanine uses the same active transport channel as tryptophan to cross the blood-brain barrier, and, in large quantities, interferes with the production of serotonin.
DL-phenylalanine (DLPA) often appears to potentiate pain relief and also ease depression in patients suffering from chronic non-malignant pain. This formula combines DLPA with synergistic vitamins B1, B2, B6 and C.
