Re: L-Phenylalanine and L-Tyrosine

Hi Janet

If found this message response from Dr Kellon on the subject in the archives:

Would you consider supplementing L-Tyrosine & phenylalanine useful in horses with PPID?
Dr Kellon's reply: These amino acids are interconvertible and required for dopamine synthesis. We've actually had a few members try this and there was no effect, likely because the problem is death of the neurons, not amino acid deficiency.
