Tyronsine and L-Tyrosine

Tyrosine is a nonessential amino acid produced inside the body from phenylalanine. This amino acid is an important nutritional ingredient and factor for the synthesis of the neurotransmitters epinephrine, norepinephrine, and dopamine. Thyrosine is also necessary to produce a number of important hormones including thyroxin, which serves an important role in regulating the metabolism, skin health, mental health, and growth rate.

Dosage Recommendations

Those who use supplemental L-tyrosine (tyrosine) typically take 500 to 1500 mg daily.
