L-tyrosine is an amino acid which helps restore dopamine and norepinephrine, two neurotransmitters important for maintaining mood, and which become depleted by stress, including prolonged work or exercise, exposure to cold, and sleep deprivation. Supplementing with Natural Factors L-Tyrosine helps the body manage stress, and improve mood, energy levels, and alertness.
Each vegetarian capsule contains:
L-tyrosine 500 mg
Vegetarian capsule (carbohydrate gum [cellulose], purified water), dibasic calcium phosphate dihydrate, vegetable grade magnesium stearate (lubricant), silica.
L-tyrosine is a non-essential amino acid important in the production of neurotransmitters such as dopamine, epinephrine, and norepinephrine – required for managing stress. It helps decrease cognitive fatigue due to physically stressful situations and promotes normal and healthy brain function including memory and concentration. It also supports normal muscle movement.
L-tyrosine is an amino acid required for protein synthesis, and is a precursor for several important compounds, including thyroxin, melanin, and the neurotransmitters dopamine and norepinephrine. Dopamine and norepinephrine are important hormones and central nervous system transmitters that help maintain mood, attention and focus, and cognition. By increasing dopamine and norepinephrine at the cellular level, tyrosine may help maintain neurological health and improve mood, cognition, attention, and memory.
Tyrosine is a potent antioxidant and appears to act as an adaptogen during conditions of physical and mental stress, as shown by its ability to normalize blood pressure, alleviate fatigue, and improve cognitive function, attention, psychomotor skills, and memory. These effects may be due to tyrosine’s ability to affect brain chemicals and promote positive changes in brain pathways.
Tyrosine helps alleviate some of the effects of stress. Studies in humans show supplementation with tyrosine improves various aspects of cognitive function and physical symptoms of fatigue during exposure to physical stressors such as cold, high altitude, and extended wakefulness. Improvements are thought to be due to balancing brain chemicals and improving cognitive function.
