Phenylalanine

What is Phenylalanine?

Phenylalanine is an essential amino acid, a building block of proteins, vital for the proper functioning of the body. It comes in three forms: L-phenylalanine, D-phenylalanine, and DL-phenylalanine. Among these, L-phenylalanine is the most common and important for biological processes.

Why we would use it for pet products?

Phenylalanine is used in pet products for its potential to support various aspects of a pet's health. This amino acid can help improve mood, alertness, and focus in dogs, cats, and horses, making it a valuable ingredient in supplements and treats.

Where can Phenylalanine be found in nature?

Phenylalanine is naturally found in various protein-rich foods, including meat, fish, eggs, dairy products, and some plants. The body can also convert another amino acid, tyrosine, into phenylalanine, but dietary intake remains essential for ensuring an adequate supply of this amino acid.

Did You Know?

Phenylalanine plays a crucial role in the production of neurotransmitters like dopamine, norepinephrine, and epinephrine. These neurotransmitters are associated with mood and alertness in pets, and a balanced intake of phenylalanine can contribute to their overall well-being.
