L-tyrosine is an amino acid‚ or protein-building molecule‚ that has a range of effects on your brain. It's needed to produce chemical messengers called epinephrine‚ dopamine‚ and norepinephrine; all three of these chemicals play a part in regulating your mood. Since it helps your body produce mood-influencing chemicals‚ your doctor may recommend L-tyrosine supplements to boost your mood.
In addition to helping you feel better mentally‚ L-tyrosine may also stimulate the production of melanin‚ a substance that provides your skin and hair with color. L-tyrosine also works to regulate activity within your thyroid‚ adrenal‚ and pituitary glands‚ which release hormones into your bloodstream and may support the creation of pain-relieving molecules.
If you have low levels of L-tyrosine in your body‚ you may experience symptoms such as low body temperature. If you're short on vitamin B6‚ folic acid‚ and/or copper‚ your body may not effectively use the L-tyrosine you take in through your diet or supplementation; this could lead to an L-tyrosine deficiency. Likewise‚ a health condition called phenylketonuria (PKU) interferes with the production of L-tyrosine‚ making additional dietary intake or a supplement necessary.
Metabolic Maintenance’s L-Tyrosine 500 mg is a supplement that provides this essential amino acid. Combined with vitamin B6‚ each capsule supports the creation of proteins. At the recommended dosage of one capsule daily‚ a 100-capsule bottle of L-tyrosine will last you around three months.

from Beaverton, OR
L-Tyrosine by Metabolic Maintenance is a high quality product. My natropath carries it but it costs more from her so I prefer to purchase it from Pureformulas!
√ I would recommend this item to a friend.
