Phenylalanine-What Is It

Benefits And Uses For Phenylalanine:

Essential amino acid must be obtained from diet to meet the needs of the body.   Phenylalanine is used by the body to produce hormones, particularly adrenalin.  May be used to manage blood pressure and treat depression.

Deficiency Symptoms Of Phenylalanine:

Protein-amino acid deficiencies can lead to malnutrition, muscle breakdown, confusion, allergies, depression, diabetes, infection and schizophrenia.

Toxicity (Overdose) Symptoms Of Phenylalanine:

Anyone suffering from an anxiety type condition should avoid supplementation.  Also, supplementation should be discontinued if headaches result.

Foods High In Phenylalanine:

Cottage cheese, seafood, meats, poultry, peanuts, sesame seeds, lentils.

Supplements Of Phenylalanine:

The recommended 110 mg per day is easily obtained even from low protein diets.  Given the possibility of toxic side effects, we recommend no supplementation except under the supervision of your doctor.

Health And Fitness For Life:

People looking for nutrient information usually want to avoid health problems, get the most out of life and the most life they can.  Not just physical existence, but mental and spiritual.  If you have more than body or looks in your health and fitness goals, you can find it spiritually through God.  He can heal the stuff your diet doesn't control and bring real health and fitness to your life.  If you want His help, go to Healing From God
