L-Tyrosine Capsules by Seeking Health provide 500 mg of L-tyrosine per vegetarian capsule. This non-essential amino acid can be produced in the body from phenylalanine, an essential amino acid that must be provided by dietary sources or supplementation. L-tyrosine can also be taken as a dietary supplement for optimal health. It is involved in the normal production of catecholamine neurotransmitters: dopamine, epinephrine and norepinephrine in the brain. These neurotransmitters play significant roles in regulation of stress responses, mood and fatigue.
L-tyrosine supplementation may be beneficial under certain conditions as the brain may not be able to synthesize enough tyrosine from phenylalanine during prolonged periods of stress. Important neurotransmitters such as epinephrine, norepinephrine, and dopamine are synthesized from tyrosine and other precursors and may become depleted during bouts of stress. Therefore, many of the possible benefits of L-tyrosine are due to its function as a building block for these neurotransmitters. In addition to supporting healthy mood regulation and cognitive function, L-tyrosine may aid in healthy energy production and may be used as a component of a healthy diet and supplement regimen for support during athletic training.
