L-Phenylalanine is an essential amino acid for the human body and a direct precursor to the neuromodulator phenethylamine. It is classified as a neutral and nonpolar due to the inert and hydrophobic nature of the benzyl side chain. As the body is unable to produce it itself, it must rely on external uptake through food or supplements.
It is a critical amino acid for the proper function of the central nervous system as it is used to produce various proteins as well as the formation and synthesis of a range of neurotransmitters such as epinephrine, dopamine and norepinephrine.
L-Phenylalanine is chemically a precursor for tyrosine, the monoamine neurotransmitters dopamine, epinephrine (also known as adrenaline) and norepinephrine (also known as noradrenaline) and the skin pigment melanin.
L-Phenylalanine can be found naturally mammal breast milk and is used in the manufacture of food and drink products.
