Phenylalanine Supplement Information

Phenylalanine, an essential amino acid, is commonly found in the form of dietary supplements. These products are claimed to be helpful for conditions such as depression, rheumatoid arthritis, and attention deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD). Studies show that phenylalanine may also be a beneficial treatment for a skin condition called vitiligo.
 
Just because this is a natural product, this does not mean phenylalanine supplements are safe or appropriate for everyone. Information on side effects and drug interactions should be reviewed with your healthcare provider or pharmacist. Phenylalanine can still cause side effects, especially in people with certain medical conditions, such as schizophrenia or Parkinson's disease.
