    More Info.

    PEA as a neuromodulator

    Trace amines, like PEA, are similar in structure to neurotransmitters and are involved in the regulation of catecholamines.

    • As no individual neurons exclusively utilize PEA, it is considered as a neuromodulator2 
    • The trace amine associated receptor (TAAR) functions to inhibit the reuptake of the catecholamines in vitro
    • Activation of TAAR by PEA allows these neurotransmitters to remain in the synapse, leading to increased concentrations of catecholamines

    Catecholamines from the prefrontal cortex control multiple cognitive functions including attention, impulse control, and memory

    The science behind symptoms

    A cohort study of pediatric subjects with focus concerns had significantly lower PEA levels when compared to the control group (p<0.05)

    • There was a 73% difference in urinary PEA levels in the control subjects when compared to the group with focus issues„
    • Another double-blind study showed that daily use of 200mg of DL-phenylalanine for 30 days may improve mood
    • PEA is converted into the metabolite phenylacetic acid, a compound with similar natural effects to that of endorphins

    Focus DL contains amounts of DL-phenylalanine per serving that meet and exceed those used in this study

    Focus DL - 60 Capsules has a rating of 5.0 stars based on 2 reviews.
