Expiration Date:Expiration Date
The length of time for the expiration date or "best used before" date depends on the type of product, as well as the brand.
Perishable items (such as flax oils or certain probiotics) generally have shorter expiration dates. Although our warehouse is fully air-conditioned, these more fragile items are put in cold storage (freezer or refrigeration unit) for maximum freshness.
Our receiving department does its best to verify and then enter the correct expiration dates for all incoming products. However, discrepancies do occur from time to time. This being said, the exceptionally high turnover at iHerb ensures that our inventory is among the freshest in the industry.

L-Phenylalanine is an essential amino acid that is necessary for the synthesis of protein. Because L-Phenylalanine can be readily converted into the amino acid tyrosine, which forms part of the structure of the neurotransmitters dopamine and norepinephrine, it is important for the maintenance of a healthy nervous system.

Not too sure how it would work by itself as Im taking DMAE, Tyrosine, Phenylalanine and Theanine in the morning for mild depression and lack of concentration. The cocktail definitely improved my mood, energy and confidence at work. Laughters pop up naturally and easier now... I'm happy with the results, no need to take other doses during the day and no side effects so far. Also take 50mg of 5-HTP at night and it helps me to sleep like a baby.

Can be very useful for brain power

Very good nutrient for work or motivation. A lot more safer than other stimulants. My body takes what it needs with amino acids. I take it in the morning, and at 5 pm I take l-Tryptophan for serotonin. I think it is very important to have enough Tryptophan too in the afternoon for mood. Phenylalanine and Tryptophan are a must have!! Fast shipping, good quality, good ingredients. Perfect. Thanks.
Works well for me

I suffer from ME/CFS and I find that phenylalanine helps. Up until now I have been using DL phenylalanine but my osteopath tested me and discovered that I need more L at this point. He tested me with this brand and my test response showed that it would do the trick. I am due for another test in a week and am looking forward to seeing if I need to increase my dose. I ordered this from the UK and it arrived promptly. The price, even with postage, is cheaper than I can get locally.
Improves my mood

I'm trying L-Phenylalanine for the first time to help with depression. I started on one capsule per day, taken upon waking, on an empty stomach, 30 minutes before breakfast. I didn't notice any improvement in my mood, so gradually increased the dose. I now take four capsules each morning and the improvement to my mood is obvious. Less than four capsules seems to have no effect on me. I like this particular brand because the capsules contain no fillers or additives, just the active ingredient.
Better Than the Rest

Definitely the best brand in terms of potency, though your mileage may vary when it comes to the overall usefulness of phenylalanine as a supplement. It did provide a mood lift for me, but I don't think the recommended 1 capsule dose is likely to make a dent in cases of truly intractable depression and/or ADHD. At least not by itself.
