Product Description

Size: 500 mg - 120 Caps | Product Packaging: Standard Packaging

L-Tyrosine is a non-essential amino acid that plays an important role in the production of neurotransmitters dopamine and norepinephrine.  In addition, because L-Tyrosine is necessary for the synthesis of thyroid hormone and epinephrine (adrenaline), L-Tyrosine supports healthy glandular function and stress response.*

They seem to help me focus and clear out some of the brain fog.
Ron Staebell
So, if you're not sleeping, sleeping too much, depressed, anxious, whatever, L-Tyrosine may be able to help.

As someone who is self-employed, without insurance, and has been diagnosed several times with clinical depression I've been motivated to do a lot of research on natural remedies to coping with this "illness" rather than go the RX route. I've taken probably 15 different "cures" or combination of such over the past 5 years and have found a combo that works for me. Not a cure, just something that makes the low times shorter and less intense. Which to some people, is a cure in itself.

The first thing I found to be effective is L-Tyrosine (hence the review), Now Foods L-Tyrosine 500mg, 120-Capsules is an amino acid that your body can create on its own or get from food. It is a precursor to several neurotransmitters, including epinephrine or adrenaline, norepinephrine and dopamine. Two of these compounds, epinephrine and norepinephrine, are commonly called stress hormones because your body releases them as part of the mechanism that helps you deal with stress. As a result, increasing your levels of L-tyrosine may help you cope with situations that might trigger anxiety.

I've tried a number of different supplements with and without L-tyrosine and have found the best results for me have come from taking this and TranquiliX; #1 Top Rated For Rapid Anxiety and Stress Relief ★ Pharmaceutical Grade Anti-Anxiety Formula for Relaxation and Stress Reduction With Mood Support & Patented AES® Delivery System for Maximum Absorption ★ Try it 100% Risk Free!.

The reviews for this product seem to be contradictory, so I thought I'd try to add a little clarification. And let me state for the record that I am not a medical professional of any kind. This is just my own experience.

The literature I have found on L-Tyrosine indicates that it supports your thyroid. Your thyroid makes hormones that control just about everything else in your body. So, if you're not sleeping, sleeping too much, depressed, anxious, whatever, L-Tyrosine may be able to help.

In my case, I have had terrible problems with depression and lethargy for my entire life. I would be fine one minute, and weeping uncontrollably the next. Sometimes I would sleep for 14-16 hours straight. Sometimes I couldn't sleep at all. I also had unpredictable asthma attacks and occasional paralyzing anxiety. Obviously, something was wrong, but I've been tested for everything under the sun. Other than allergies to trees and grass, no doctor has ever been able to find anything "treatable." And I have to say that being on antidepressants was worse for me than the depression itself.

Then a "health food nut" at work suggested I try L-Tyrosine. The cliche "it changed my life" doesn't even begin to cover it. I have energy now. I sleep better, but only 8 hours or so at at time. My mood swings are gone. I haven't had an asthma attack in years, and even my allergy symptoms are less severe. I've lost weight. My menstrual cycle has evened out. I've become more productive in my hobbies, and I've missed a lot less work. All of this happened after I started taking just 500mg of L-Tyrosine a day. And I know it's not the placebo effect where something works only because you think it will. If I forget a dose, everything goes downhill in a big hurry!

A few years ago, I had been on countless prescription SSRI antidepressants and "mood stabilizers" that either had no effect, made me very sleepy, or made me feel worse. After deciding to get off all the prescription meds and go the natural route, I read The Mood Cure by Julia Ross and also subsequently read similar anecdotal evidence online that L-Tyrosine - a naturally occurring amino acid - works well at boosting mood, fighting depression, and promoting energy and alertness. So I decided to give it a try. For me it definitely does all these things.

Tyrosine acts as a precursor to a specific type of neurotransmitters called catecholamines, namely dopamine, epinephrine (adrenaline), and norepinephrine. As mentioned, these catecholamines promote energy, alertness, and a general sense of optimism. They are also responsible for the body's natural fight-or-flight response to immediate stress or danger, when the adrenal glands pump massive amounts of adrenaline into the bloodstream, increasing heart rate, blood pressure, breathing rate, and muscle strength, all while also creating a sense of mental hyper awareness. Caffeine, a stimulant, also does these things, but causes a crash or 'burnout' later. This is why so many people turn to caffeine (usually via coffee) and other stimulants to start their day, since these substances temporarily enhance mood, energy, and cognition by increasing catecholamine synthesis. You can almost think of tyrosine as a milder form of caffeine without the intense amphetamine-like effect, without the crash, and without the associated negative side effects.
