L-Tyrosine is an amino-acid building block for several important brain chemicals (neurotransmitters) including epinephrine, norepinephrine, and dopamine. Neurotransmitters help nerve cells communicate and influence mood. It helps in the function of organs responsible for making and regulating hormones, including the adrenal, thyroid, and pituitary glands. It is involved in the structure of almost every protein in the body.
Supplementation of L-Tyrosine can help improve low blood pressure, low body temperature, and an underactive thyroid. It should be considered for depression, anxiety, alcoholism, drug withdrawal and pituitary, thyroid, and adrenal hypo-function.
