I have started taking mega doses of phenylalanine (>5gm/day) and I
have noticed a remarkable boost in my libido. There are conflicting
reports on the internet about the safety of Phenylalanine
supplementation. One study in which they gave subjects 5gm/day showed
no adverse effects. There are many websites that state that there are
no known adverse effects from phenylalanine supplementation. Other
websites say that phenylalanine is an excitotoxin and can cause
neurological problems. But this has been shown primarily in invitro
studies of the effects of Phenylalanine on neurons and in infants with
phenylketonuria. My question is whether an ADULT who has an intact
blood-brain barrier and all the necessary enzymes to metabolize
Phenylalanine can take supplementation and if so at what dose?
