- Supports an Alert State
DL-Phenylalanine or DLPA, is a 50/50 mixture of the D and L forms of the amino acid phenylalanine (phenylalanine is one of the few amino acids that can be utilized in its D form). Researchers believe that D-phenylalanine (DPA) inhibits the action of an enzyme that breaks down endorphins and enkephalins. These are proteins that bind to opioid receptor sites in the brain, thereby influencing the perception of discomfort. By obstructing the action of this enzyme, DPA may extend the life of endorphins and enkephalins and their positive influence on comfort levels. L-Phenylalanine is the precursor to two neurotransmitters that help support an alert state.

iHerb Customer Reviews
I have been getting DLPA from I-Herb for a while now and find that it does indeed help with my mind's control of pain and an all over joint relaxing feeling.
I love this stuff! I started using DLPA quite a few years ago for pain. I've never switched brands, but tried not taking it for awhile and after two weeks, could hardly walk. As soon as I started taking it again, the pain subsided. You hear a lot of bad things about phenylalanine, but I can't live without this stuff!
