Source Naturals, L-Phenylalanine Powder, 3.53 oz (100 g)3 Reviews
Expiration Date: Nov 2017
The length of time for the expiration date or "best used before" date depends on the type of product, as well as the brand.
Perishable items (such as flax oils or certain probiotics) generally have shorter expiration dates. Although our warehouse is fully air-conditioned, these more fragile items are put in cold storage (freezer or refrigeration unit) for maximum freshness.
Our receiving department does its best to verify and then enter the correct expiration dates for all incoming products. However, discrepancies do occur from time to time. This being said, the exceptionally high turnover at iHerb ensures that our inventory is among the freshest in the industry.

- Amino Acid Supplement
L-Phenylalanine, an essential amino acid, is a precursor for the amino acid tyrosine, as well as for a whole series of neurotransmitters and hormones. Phenylalanine is first converted to tyrosine, which becomes L-dopa, which then converts to norepinephrine, a key neurotransmitter and adrenal hormone. L-Phenylalanine is also a direct precursor to PEA (phenylethylamine), another important neurotransmitter.

iHerb Customer Reviews
I've been taking 100 mg phenylalanine + 100 mg tyrosine twice daily to help balance my neurotransmitter levels and it's helped me feel much more alert during the day.
Take 500mg/1 gram on an empty stomach 30 minutes before a meal and you'll feel full with very little food. The effect lasts several hours. It greatly reduces food cravings of any sort and it's therefore a huge help for weight loss. No negative side effects. On the contrary I noticed a positive effect on mood. I chose the powder because it's pure without any fillers,but unfortunately it's not water soluble. I solved the problem by putting the powder into capsules.
