What is L-Phenylalanine?
L-phenylalanine is considered an essential amino acid, which means our bodies cannot create it and needs to obtain it from dietary sources such as food and supplements. It is naturally found in some vegetables and juices as well as in fermented foods like yogurt and miso. The best natural sources of l-phenylalanine include eggs, chicken, liver, beef, milk, soybeans, spinach, leafy greens, tofu, amaranth leaves, and lupin seeds.
L-phenylalanine, which can cross the blood-brain barrier, plays an important role in a number of biological functions, especially in supporting the nervous system.** It is involved in protein synthesis and is a precursor to L-tyrosine, which is necessary for the production of the neurotransmitters dopamine and norepinephrine.**
Piping Rock’s L-Phenylalanine products deliver 500 mg of this free-form amino acid per serving. Take one (1) quick release capsule one to three times daily between meals to support nervous system wellness, healthy mood, and the levels of L-tyrosine in the body.**
