CONCENTRATION OF DL-PHENYLALANINE
There are no fillers of any kind present in this supplement. DL-Phenylalanine is a mixture of equal parts D and L forms of Phenylalanine, the D form being synthetically crafted in laboratory conditions, and the L form found in various proteins. Phenylalanine is actually one of the very few amino acids that can actually be used while in its D form. Since DL-Phenylalanine is made up of 50/50 D and L parts, it has effects of both.
DL-PHENYLALANINE SIDE EFFECTS
Since this supplement has the potential to have serious effects on neurotransmitters and emotional responses in the brain, it should not be taken by anyone that is already being medicated for psychiatric conditions such as depression. Taking this along with antidepressants could elevate the blood pressure to very dangerous and possibly fatal heights. There is also a rare condition called Phenylketonuria, which causes the body to improperly metabolize Phenylalanine. If you have been diagnosed with this disease, do not take this product.
Ignoring the suggested serving size of DL-Phenylalanine or taking too much of it over long periods can cause adverse side effects such as headache, heartburn, heightened blood pressure, mood swings, anger agitation, nausea, insomnia, serious nerve damage, and problems digesting Tyrosine. Anyone that routinely experiences high blood pressure or serious headaches like migraines should not take this supplement or consume foods that are high in Phenylalanine content. This product should also not be supplemented by women who are pregnant or nursing and those with melanoma.
