Product Overview

Description
  • Neurotransmitter Support

  • GMP-Quality Assured
  • A Dietary Supplement

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.

Suggested Use

As a dietary supplement, take 1 capsule 1 to 3 times daily, preferably between meals. Consider taking this product in combination with NOW L-Phenylalanine and Acetyl L-Carnitine.

Other Ingredients

Gelatin (capsule), magnesium stearate (vegetable source) and stearic acid (vegetable source).

Contains no sugar, salt, starch, yeast, wheat, gluten, corn, soy, milk, egg, shellfish or preservatives.

The L-Tyrosine used in this product is Pharmaceutical Grade (USP).

Warnings

Persons with thyroid disease (hyperthyroidism), melanoma, or those taking MAO inhibitors or other mood altering medications should seek the advice of a physician before consuming this product.

Excellent for Depression
I've been taking L-Tyrosine and 5-HTP for depression and anxiety for about three weeks now. The results have been absolutely amazing. This works *far* better than any prescription anti-depressant SSRI I've been prescribed. Not only has my depression and anxiety dissipated, I actually feel energetic and alive! I read about these in Dr. Priscilla Slagle's book "The Way Up From Down" and also in Julia Ross's "The Mood Cure". I've been following Slagle's basic program which involves a very high-quality Multi Vitamin Mineral (M.V.M.), a high-quality Co-Enzyme B Complex that contains the proper form of B6 (P-5-P), and an extra 50mg of B6 (Pyridoxal-5-Phosphate / P-5-P) with each dose of L-Tyrosine or 5-HTP. I also take Vitamin C. Here's what I take: L-Tyrosine 1500mg + P-5-P 50mg on an empty stomach upon first waking up. I wait an hour before breakfast so it absorbs properly. M.V.M., B-Complex, Vitamin C 1-2000mg with breakfast L-Tyrosine 1500mg + P-5-P 50mg mid-afternoon on an empty stomach. M.V.M., B-Complex, Vitamin C 1-2000mg with dinner 5-HTP 100-150mg + P-5-P 50mg before bed on an empty stomach (makes me sleepy) The 5-HTP increases serotonin, and the L-Tyrosine increases dopamine and norepinephrine. So unlike a typical SSRI like Prozac that only increases serotonin, this increases these three neurotransmitters that regulate mood. Highly recommended if you're suffering from depression/anxiety and nothing you've tried so far seems to completely work.

not for everyone

I was looking forward to relieving my eternal tiredness with this amino acid, but it only aggravated the state, and left me even more tired and stiff in the shoulders and neck area.

Always eat tyrosine before meals

Posted by energyguy on Feb 25, 2016

At first I took tyrosine after meal. I still feel tired. Then one day, I watch Dr Oz recommending a book that uses tyrosine for weight loss. In that book, the author recommend taking tyrosine 1st thing in the morning and before meals. I follow that instruction and immediate I feel energized after each meal. Even the mood cure book recommend taking tyrosine first thing in the morning.

2nd bottle

My sister has a thyroid issue. This perks her up and gives her the energy she needs.

It has changed my life...cannot do without it!

Posted by ALoren on Nov 15, 2015

Bought this bottle 1-2 years back. Took 1 capsule and felt overstimulated/angry, so I just stopped taking this and kept it in my dry box at home. Just realised several months ago that people like me who are sensitive to supplements should try taking a lower dose, and what a difference that has made! Started taking 1/3 capsule 15-30 minutes before breakfast , and it has made me a more focused, happier, contented and outgoing person. Without this, I have a tendency to be inattentive and apathetic. Tyrosine has improved my relationships and general happiness tremendously...cannot do without it!

WOW

This product worked immediately. I was depressed, tired, no energy whatsoever, and I suspect hypothyroidism (didn't test though). Now I am full of energy, not depressed anymore, and happy about this product!
