Important anti-depressant

Posted by stinapope on Dec 21, 2016 | Verified Purchase

DLPA is a well documented source for particular issues of brain support, if that support is not there, addictive behavior is seen. This helps support the brain as a neurotransmitter precursor, helping the brain "remember" to start making it again.

Thanks for your feedback!

Read Julia Ross' book The Mood Cure which recommends DLPA for certain types of mood issues. I find this brand works well for me. I take a tablet on an empty stomach when I am feeling sad and in need of comfort for no good reason. I take one whenever I feel I need it, it is great to have this option after so many years of feeling bad. I also use SAMe I cannot live without, and also 5HTP, GABA and L-Tyrosine when I need them.

Thanks for your feedback!

Worst supplement I ever used

Posted by danarm on Dec 05, 2012 | Verified Purchase

I started experimenting with both D-phenylalanine (DPA) and D,L-phenylalanine (DLPA) because I have read about them in "The Diet Cure" by Julia Ross. All the other advices in the book were very good and helped me a lot. But using DLPA or DPA proved to be catastrophic for me. In the beginning, DLPA and DPA (1 pill per day) gave me a pleasant feeling of relaxation. But afterwards I had horrible symptoms: horrible headaches, dizziness and hot flashes which went on for 2-3 days, in spite of the fact that I ceased taking them. I have tried using DLPA or DPA multiple times. Each time the symptoms above (horrible headache, dizzyness, feeling hot) manifested themselves. So, to me it is a horrible supplement, one of the worst experiences I had. DLPA and DPA had the same effect on me, so I'm posting the same text as reviews for both products that I used.
