L-Tyrosine (500mg) Overview
NOW L-Tyrosine is a pharmaceutically-pure free form tyrosine supplement in the most commonly-used potency, 500 mg. NOW L-tyrosine can be a useful way to boost mood and alertness since it can be converted into brain chemicals associated with a positive state-of-mind. Tyrosine is also a critical factor for the production of thyroid hormones that regulate metabolism, so NOW L-Tyrosine is often used for thyroid support too. For best results on mood and alertness, take L-tyrosine on an empty stomach, 1 hour before or 3 hours after eating. For thyroid support, take NOW L-Tyrosine with food.
L-Tyrosine (500mg) Description from Now
L-Tyrosine is a conditionally indispensable amino acid required for the production of the neurotransmitters dopamine, adrenaline, and noradrenaline, as well as for the skin pigment, melanin. Noradrenaline (norepinephrine) and adrenaline (epinephrine) are the main actors in the body's response to acute stress and, along with dopamine, help to support a positive mood and mental alertness. In addition, L-Tyrosine is especially critical for the normal function of the thyroid gland.
