L-Tyrosine is a dietary supplement formulated to support weight loss, thyroid gland health, nervous system health, and promote mood and emotional balance. L-Tyrosine is available in capsules from Natura-Genics®.
L-tyrosine is not considered an essential amino acid so it does not have to be consumed through food. Instead, it is made by the body using another amino acid, phenylalanine. L-tyrosine helps build proteins in the body and produces enzymes, thyroid hormones, and neurotransmitters.
Benefits of L-Tyrosine
• Supports Weight Loss
Overindulging is sometimes caused by stress and may cause an unwanted increase in weight. L-tyrosine is important in the production of the neurotransmitter dopamine, also known as the “happy hormone”. Many people turn to food for comfort and satisfaction. Adequate amounts of dopamine may assist in avoiding compensatory food intake and may help promote weight loss.
L-tyrosine helps with the production of the thyroid hormones, thyroxine and triiodothyronine. Thyroxine is one of the main hormones produced by the thyroid. It is the inactive form and is converted into the active form, triiodothyronine by the organs such as the liver and kidneys. Thyroid hormones are important for regulating the body’s metabolic rate, heart, digestive functions, muscle and bones, and brain development, among many other functions in the body.
L-tyrosine helps make several important substances for the nervous system including dopamine and adrenaline. Recent studies have shown that dopamine is also an important brain chemical for memory and motor skills. Adrenaline is responsible for the “fight-or-flight” response that comes into play under stress or when feeling afraid.
• Promotes Mood and Emotional Balance
L-tyrosine is believed to assist in alleviating some symptoms of depression. Depression is thought to occur when neurotransmitters in the brain are unbalanced. Some studies have shown that l-tyrosine has a positive role in depression management. Healthy levels of dopamine support feelings of reward and pleasure while low levels of dopamine are associated with low motivation and decreased enthusiasm.
