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.

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.

This actually works, mind blown!

Posted by 5171670785738177239 on Nov 22, 2016

I've been a meth user on and off for the past 10 years, that can cause dopamine depletion. Dosages says 500mg a day, but did some research on it and it's safe to use up to 7000mg. After bumping up my dosage to 2000mg three times a day I can already feel a difference on my focus, feel more joy, more alive then ever before. Was diagnosed with ADD at the age 20, been taking ritalin also for a small period of time, but that gave me so much headache I had to stop. So after quitting drugs all together and adding this product + replacing coffee with green tea(L-theanine) has cured my depression, anxiety, poor focus and given me so much motivation! Hope this helps someone :)

Good for ADHD

Posted by 5061974857132364953 on Aug 30, 2016

Since taking prescription amphetamines for ADHD, I found myself burnt out and exhausted from low dopamine. A tapering schedule and L-Tyrosine helped me to recover quicker than I have previously from taking this script and I feel so much more myself than I thought I could! This is also a great study tool as it helps me to focus without the speedy effect of the medication.

L Tyrosine is exactly what I need to be alive.

Posted by bobbienorthern on Jul 16, 2016

This tyrosine really works. I just received it three days ago and it worked on me the very first time I took it. It really has given me so much more energy and endurance just in a short three days. Everyone is different so each of us should work with it and figure out what is the best dosage for our selves. I have read every review in here on the tyrosine and it seems that it will affect each of us in a different way. I have really been in great need of this supplement and am so glad that I found it just by reading reviews of all the other supplements that I take. It helps to convert the T4 into the T3 so it seems to me it gives the thyroid a badly needed jump start for me. It has decreased my hunger and appetite also. My energy is really soaring like I used to me many years ago. I am 72 next month so for me to become so alive on this supplement it verifies how good it is. Give it a try as it may really help with energy, fatigue and endurance and also with reducing my hunger and appetite. This also helps with my asthma as I can now breath much much better. I can now use inhalers only once a day and sometimes skip a few days. It really does help tremendously with my energy levels and it also really helps keep my hunger and appetite under control. It's like a miracle for my breathing.
