Our popular Tyrosine powder is now available in a convenient 1,000 mg
tablet, along with 50 mg of Vitamin C as a cofactor for
neurotransmitter production. Tyrosine is a non-essential amino acid
synthesized in the body from the essential amino acid phenylalanine.
The typical dietary amount provided by a 3 oz portion of animal protein
is 0.3-1 g of tyrosine. Tyrosine is the precursor amino acid from which
the body makes Dopamine (with vitamin B6 as a cofactor), which is then
converted to Nor-epinephrine (with vitamin C as a cofactor) and then to
Epinephrine (with SAMe as a cofactor). Tyrosine competes for uptake
with other large neutral amino acids, so in order to maximize
absorption from the supplemented Tyrosine into various tissues (such as
brain, adrenals, nerves), it should be taken on an empty stomach, or
two hours away from a protein containing meal.As a dietary supplement, take one tablet per day or as directed by your health care practitioner.wheat, yeast, soy protein, gluten, eggs, dairy, corn, artificial colors, flavors, sugars, or preservatives.
