L-Phenylalanine is an essential amino acid that is necessary for the synthesis of protein. Because L-Phenylalanine can be readily converted into the amino acid tyrosine, which forms part of the structure of the neurotransmitters dopamine and norepinephrine, it is important for the maintenance of a healthy nervous system.

Not too sure how it would work by itself as Im taking DMAE, Tyrosine, Phenylalanine and Theanine in the morning for mild depression and lack of concentration. The cocktail definitely improved my mood, energy and confidence at work. Laughters pop up naturally and easier now... I'm happy with the results, no need to take other doses during the day and no side effects so far. Also take 50mg of 5-HTP at night and it helps me to sleep like a baby.
I am about halfway through this bottle, and haven't yet noticed a change in mood, or any changes at all, really. It hasn't caused any ill effects and it was reasonably priced, but I don't think I will be purchasing again.

Definitely the best brand in terms of potency, though your mileage may vary when it comes to the overall usefulness of phenylalanine as a supplement. It did provide a mood lift for me, but I don't think the recommended 1 capsule dose is likely to make a dent in cases of truly intractable depression and/or ADHD. At least not by itself.

Using this AA in conjunction with 3 others plus herbs and magnesium - I have managed to turn around a 35 year habit of type 2 insomnia that has responded to no other forms or combinations od treatments. I'm now sleeping through the night and waking fully rested at least 5 nights out of the week. This is nothing short of miraculous in my experience. All the AA products that I use are the Now Brand and their price combined with effectiveness makes this a product that I am more than happy to recommend to anyone.
