•D-Phenylalanine is the dextrorotatory form of the amino acid, phenylalanine. The L-forms of amino acids are ones that are bioavailable and are for protein synthesis and regulatory functions. They are like mirror images of one another. However, D-Phenylalanine is not absorbed into the body, but acts as an inhibiting agent to the enzymes that are responsible for the breakdown of endorphins, which control pain perception. Endorphins are naturally occurring opiate-like peptides, which control pain perception and produce an analgesic effect. Their effects are only of a short duration because of metabolic enzymes which inhibit increased endorphin production. D-Phenylalanine prohibits these enzymes, allowing increased endorphin production and prolonged and intensified analygesic affects. Thus the body increases its own natural pain tolerance mechanism.
D-Phenylalanine is a safe alternative to opiates for chronic pain management and will not upset the stomach as many "over-the-counter" drugs such as aspirin and ibuprofen will do. It may, however, be used to increase the effects of drugs, such as aspirin, so that a lower dosage of a drug would be necessary to achiever relief.
