Quick Overview

Tyrosine is important to overall metabolism.  It is

  • precursor to adrenaline and

  • precursor to norepinephrine

  • precursor to dopamine,

which regulate mood and stimulate metabolism and the nervous system.


Ingredients (per Capsule):

500 mg L-Tyrosine, veg. cellulose capsule

Contains no fillers, binders or other additives.


Tyrosine acts as a mood elevator; a lack of adequate amounts of tyrosine leads to a deficiency in norepinephrine in the brain, which in turn can result in depression. It also acts as a mild antioxidant, suppresses the appetite, and helps to reduce body fat.

It aids in the production of melanin (the pigment responsible for skin and hair colour) and in the functions of the adrenal, thyroid, and pituitary glands. It is also involved in the metabolism of the amino acid phenylalanine.

Tyrosine attaches to iodine atoms to form active thyroid hormones. Not surprisingly, therefore, low plasma levels of tyrosine have been associated with hypothyroidism. Symptoms of tyrosine deficiency can also include low blood pressure, low body temperature (such as cold hands and feet), and restless leg syndrome.

Supplemental L-tyrosine has been used for stress reduction, and research suggests it may be helpful against chronic fatigue and narcolepsy. It has been used to help individuals suffering from anxiety, depression, low sex drive, allergies, and headaches, as well as persons undergoing withdrawal from drugs. It may also help people with Parkinson's disease.
