L-phenylalanine Date Written  
Author Joe Holmes Date Revised  

 

1. "Braverman and Pfeiffer, in "The Healing Nutrients Within", suggest that L-phenylalanine works best in bipolar disorders (with manic and depressive states) in doses of 500 mg twice daily (not more than 2-3 grams daily), along with 100 mg vitamin B6 twice daily. They also suggest that D- and DL-phenylalanine works better for affective (lack of positive attitude or emotional enthusiasm for life) depression. Phenylalanine is better absorbed than tyrosine and produces fewer headaches, so may be more useful in depression than taking L-tyrosine directly." http://www.beatcfsandfms.org/html/BrainChem.html
