L-Phenylalanine - L-Phenylalanine is an essential, nine-carbon amino acid and is a precursor to the amino acid Tyrosine. Because Tyrosine is necessary for the synthesis of proteins and the production of the neurotransmitters dopamine and norepinephrine, Phenylalanine is an extremely important factor for nervous system health. By contributing to the synthesis of dopamine and norepinephrine, Phenylalanine may also help to regulate appetite by promoting a healthy mood.* NOW® offers Phenylalanine in 500mg capsules.
