DL-Phenylalanine (DLPA) is an essential amino acid, meaning the body produces it naturally from the diet. All proteins in the body are made from amino acids, which is why amino acids are often referred to as the “building blocks” of proteins. Phenylalanine is one of the eight amino acids indispensable in the diet of man. It comes in two forms, called “D” (right-handed) and “L.” L (left-handed), Phenylalanine is also found in a mixture consisting of equal parts of the D and L forms, referred to as DL-Phenylalanine (DLPA).
DLPA is used as natural pain control by a variety of people, whether they are active and sedentary. It may help relieve pain from whiplash, rheumatoid arthritis, lower back pain, migraines, muscle cramps and soreness, as well as postoperative pain. Moreover, it has been shown to be effective for boosting emotional enthusiasm for life and fighting depression.
Unlike many pharmaceutical drugs, this non-addictive amino acid actually appears to become more effective over time. The pain relief may not occur immediately and can take anywhere from four days to four weeks before relief is noticeable. However, as opposed to risking addiction or side effects with pharmaceutical pain-killers, most users report that DLPA is worth the wait.
Athletes use DLPA for many of its benefits: to improve focus for a workout, to help relieve post-exercise soreness, and to suppress appetite when needed.
