What is L-Tyrosine?
L-Tyrosine is an amino acid created from another amino acid, phenylalanine. In the body, L-Tyrosine is used to make more neurotransmitters, which tends to decrease under periods of stressful or mentally demanding situations.
Research shows that taking L-Tyrosine can help improve memory during stressful conditions. L-Tyrosine is also said to help improve alertness, attention and focus. Because L-Tyrosine is converted into the brain chemicals dopamine and norepinephrine, it may also play a role in relieving depression.
As a dietary supplement, take one 500mg L-Tyrosine capsule daily.
