L-Tyrosine - 500mg

Suggested Use: Take 1 capsule, 1-2 times daily, between meals.

L-Tyrosine is a nonessential amino acid synthesized in the body from phenylalanine. It is an important nutritional ingredient and factor for biosynthesis of the brain neurotransmitters epinephrine, norepinephrine, and dopamine. Tyrosine is also used to produce one of the major hormones, thyroxin, which plays an important role in controlling metabolic rate, skin health, mental health, and growth rate.

Benefits of L-Tyrosine

Stress - Tyrosine acts as an adaptogen, helping the body adapt to and cope with the effects of physical or psychological stress by minimizing the symptoms brought on by stress. This is primarily due to the fact that tyrosine is a building block for norepinephine and epinephrine, the body's two main stress-related hormones. Taken ahead of time, tyrosine allows some people to avoid typical bodily reactions and feelings from stressful situations like surgery, emotional upset, and sleep deprivation.

Depression - L-Tyrosine is an amino acids that has been shown to help some people suffering from depression. Depression has been associated with decreased activity of the neurotransmitter norepinephrine. But norepinephrine synthesis can be influenced by its amino acid precursor, tyrosine. Tyrosine (and ultimately norepinephrine helps to promote positive moods as well as motivation and drive. Depressed patients who were given tyrosine improved their sleeping patterns, mood, libido, and other psychological and physiological patterns within a week.

Phenylketonuria - This serious condition occurs in people who cannot metabolize the amino acid phenylalanine, which leads to brain damage including mental retardation. The treatment is dietary restriction of phenylalanine. Given that tyrosine is made from phenylalanine, restriction of this latter amino acid leads to deficiency of tyrosine.
