“I never thought I would get shingles–boy, was I wrong. It started about 10 years ago, Summer 2006, after 2 consecutive days at the beach. I thought I had a sun burn. Then, the left side of my back up to the neck felt like someone was holding a hot iron, with hundreds of needles on my skin, but I couldn’t see a rash, just pain there and under my armpit. The next morning, I was covered in blisters from my back to my left armpit. I was so sick, and in extreme pain for several days. At this point, the symptoms worsened, and I needed serious medical treatment. As usual, my family doctor prescribed a cocktail of heavy medications: 800 mg Zovirax every 6 hours, cortisone cream with pain reliever (Ibuprofen 400 mg, 3 times a day), and over the counter generic allergy medicines. After 4 days, the pain was barely affected. On the contrary, I was experiencing all the side effects of the above medicines: upset stomach, mild heartburn, nausea, vomiting, bloating, gas, diarrhea, constipation, dizziness, headache, nervousness, and ringing in my ears. I decided to stop the treatment, and the blisters started drying within 6 days and were almost gone on day 10. I still felt like I had a cold, with nausea etc., but minimal pain under my armpit. From this experience, I decided to get in control of my health. I started reading, and doing research on this disease, as I knew it would be part of my life. I do have a very high threshold for pain, but I wouldn’t wish this on my worst enemy! I never wanted to go through this again if it could be prevented. I learned that strengthening my immune system was the key to preventing shingles, but this cannot be achieved with prescribed drugs; only natural medicine would work for me. Honestly, this strategy helps reduce the frequency of the shingles infection, but the pain and other symptoms are always there in each episode. I have been battling with shingles pain for 10 years, until I discovered DLPA, a Life Choice product: I first followed the recommended dose, 1 capsule twice per day, but no benefit resulted. Then, I decided to increase the dosage to 2 capsules 2 times per day, and it relieved my shingles pain in about 4 hours. This was an amazing result using a natural medicine. My current dosage is 2 capsules 3 times per day when I feel the first symptoms of the infection. DLPA is a wonderful product. It really helps me get control of my shingles pain, and also blocks the appearance of blisters. There is no quick fix for shingles infections, but with commitment and a positive attitude, there is no reason why it should ruin your life. I would recommend this product to anyone suffering from shingles pain. Thank you, Life Choice for making such wonderful products.”

DL-Phenylalanine (DLPA) is an essential amino acid,meaning the body produces it naturally from the diet. All proteins in the body are made from amino acids, which is why amino acids are often referred to as the “building blocks” of proteins. Phenylalanine is one of the eight amino acids indispensable in the diet of man. It comes in two forms, called “D” (right-handed) and “L.” L (left-handed), Phenylalanine is also found in a mixture consisting of equal parts of the D and L forms, referred to as DL-Phenylalanine (DLPA).
DLPA is used as natural pain control by a variety of people, whether they are active and sedentary. It may help relieve pain from whiplash, rheumatoid arthritis, lower back pain, migraines, muscle cramps and soreness, as well as postoperative pain. Moreover, it has been shown to be effective for boosting emotional enthusiasm for life and fighting depression.
Unlike many pharmaceutical drugs, this non-addictive amino acid actually appears to become more effective over time. The pain relief may not occur immediately and can take anywhere from four days to four weeks before relief is noticeable. However, as opposed to risking addiction or side effects with pharmaceutical pain-killers, most users report that DLPA is worth the wait.
A 1991 study discovered that the human brain responds to pain by producing and activating morphine-like hormones, called endorphins. These hormones constitute the active portion of the body’s built-in pain relief system. DLPA, when used in combination with morphine, allowed the dosage of morphine to be lowered and also lessened the undesirable effects of the drug, including dependence.
DLPA operates to protect this pain relief system from certain destructive enzymes. DLPA consequently allows the pain relief system to exert its powerful pain-relieving influence for an extended period of time. Researchers contend that this nontoxic substance has antidepressant actions and is beneficial when combined with other therapies, without adverse interactions.
DLPA is converted into the amino acid L-tyrosine in the body, through complex chemical reactions in the liver; L-tyrosine, in turn, can be converted into dopamine and norepinephrine. Through these conversions, DLPA may be able to help relieve stress and depression and help suppress appetite.
Athletes use DLPA for many of its benefits: to improve focus for a workout, to help relieve post-exercise soreness, and to suppress appetite when needed.
