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.
As a dietary supplement, take 1/4 teaspoon in juice or water, preferably between meals, 1 to 3 times daily. Consider taking these other NOW products: L-Phenylalanine and Acetyl L-Carnitine.
Not manufactured with wheat, gluten, soy, milk, egg, fish, shellfish or tree nut ingredients. Produced in a GMP facility that processes other ingredients containing these allergens.
Now L-Tyrosine is Pharmaceutical Grade.
Store in a cool, dry place After opening.

Factoids: L-Tyrosine deficiencies are among the most common deficits seen in CFS. Tyrosine is used by the thyroid and adrenal glands to manufacture their natural hormones which regulate the body's ability to produce energy. Recommended use is 500 mg daily for depression and low body temperature. My Experience: I'm dealing with crippling fatigue and after being on Tyrosine for 10 days, have determined that three doses of a 1/2 teaspoon each (800 mg.) on an empty stomach has been a tremendous help in elevating my level of energy. It has also helped me to sweat again. No more cold nights. Though I don't have any signs of a Tyrosine deficiency, it has been a tremendous help therefore my diet must be somewhat deficient in Tyrosine. The powdered Tyrosine has no taste. It's a soft, puffy granule. I simply dump it into my mouth and chase with water. It couldn't be easier. Words of Advice: Using more than 1/2 teaspoon per dose is like having too much caffeine (in my experience). Taking it past late afternoon may keep you from falling asleep at your regular time. Enjoy!
I weigh about 215 lbs and I need to take about 4 grams of this to feel it for physical activities. It works great if taken on a completely empty stomach. An hour later I really notice a difference in football, basketball and Brazilian Jiu JitSu. But just for mental focus I need about 1 to 1 and half grams. You need to play around the dosage to get it right for you. But you must take it on a empty stomach for this to work.
L-Tyrosine helps me keep my mood stable

I have been using L-tyrosine for several years and find it very effective for helping me manage my tendency towards low moods. It is also slightly stimulating for me which is good as I am low energy and hypothyroid. Can disrupt my sleep if I take it too late in the day. Does reduce coffee cravings too. I have previously used the Cabot Health version of this powder but had trouble getting it this time around. The Now version also works for me but I won't buy it again as it is unpleasantly gritty and this is putting me off taking it.

I have used L-tyrosine for years. It helps me control my ADD. It is a pre-cursor to dopamine and get the neurons in the brain firing on all cylinders. It keeps me calm. Wonderful product. My mum uses it for her thyroid.

Great addition to pre-workout supplement, a little bit gritty to mix though.
This stuff works!

I noticed results within 5 days or starting this product and have been able to cut out coffee completely. I also wake up earlier with more energy and feel like it is benefiting my journey to gaining healthy body weight. For the price this product is amazing.
Very interesting, definitely useful on dull and dreary days!

I've been having a lot of motivation problems lately, but not anymore! When I take this I feel euphoric for a couple hours, and then just plain good for most of the day. Best to use it only when needed though, as I have found the effects aren't as strong or beneficial if taken daily.
