L-Tyrosine is an important amino acid that plays a key role in the synthesis of several key hormones and modulators of nerve function.
Some of the key benefits and actions of L-tyrosine include:
Thyroid Support: In the thyroid gland, L-Tyrosine is taken up and used with iodine to synthesize the thyroid hormones T3 and T4 (thyroxine). This is especially important because the biologically active thyroid hormone, T3, is the body’s primary hormonal regulator of metabolism and is important for normal growth and development.
Catecholamine precursor: Tyrosine acts a building block for several brain-stimulating catecholamines (dopamine, noradrenaline, and adrenaline) which support stress response mechanisms and the ability to concentrate.
Supplementation can help meet the higher nutritional needs of your more demanding lifestyle or medical condition. Stresses, medical complications, and energetic living can all create a greater need in your specific body for very specific minerals or vitamins. Supplementation can also help correct deficiencies in the very food you are eating, because chemicals used in farming, depleted soils, refinement, preservatives, and additives all create deep imbalances in our food supply itself.
