What does L-Phenylalanine do?
L-Phenylalanine is commonly used for vitiligo (skin disease), a a condition where irregular depigmentation (loss of colour) causes white patches of Skin. Preliminary studies indicate that L-phenylalanine strengthens the effect of UVA radiation for people with vitiligo.
The Body changes phenylalanine into tyrosine, another amino acid that's needed to make proteins and brain chemicals, including norepinephrine. Because norepinephrine affects Mood, different forms of phenylalanine have been proposed to treat Depression.
Please Note: People with a condition known as phenylketonuria (PKU), in which phenylalanine cannot be broken down, should not take any form of phenylalanine supplements. Nor should phenylalanine supplements be taken in conjunction with prescription anti-depressants, particularly monoamine oxidase (MAO) inhibitors.
PKU is a rare metabolic disorder that occurs in people who are missing an enzyme that the body requires to use phenylalanine. This causes high levels of phenylalanine to build up and if not treated before 3 weeks of age, can cause severe, irreversible intellectual disability. Individuals with PKU must consume a diet that avoids phenylalanine and take tyrosine Supplements to have optimum Brain development and growth.
