It is the precursor of the neurotransmitters l-dopa, dopamine, norepinephrine and epinephrine, supporting mood and mental clarity. dl-Phenylalanine provides a mixture of two essential amino acids, d-phenylalanine and l-phenylalanine. In the body, l-phenylalanine converts to tyrosine, enhancing neurotransmitter support.
A separate pathway allows both d- and l-phenylalanine to support levels of the mood-elevating compound phenylethylamine, a function not provided by l-tyrosine. Taurine is considered an inhibitory amino acid, helping to modulate levels of excitatory amino acids such as glutamate in the brain. This provides neuroprotective action important for maintaining proper brain cell health.
Acetyl-l-carnitine has multiple effects on brain metabolism, including helping to maintain taurine levels in a particular part of the brain. It also contributes to the production of the neurotransmitter acetylcholine and may support dopamine receptor function. As a result, acetyl-l-carnitine plays a role in memory, attention, mental clarity, and mood support.
