L-tyrosine is a nonessential amino acid (protein building block) that the body synthesizes from the amino acid phenylalanine. Tyrosine is important for the structure of almost all proteins in the body. It is a necessary amino acid in the production of neurotransmitters including epinephrine, norepinephrine, L-dopa and dopamine.
Due to its role as a precursor to norepinephrine and epinephrine (two of the body’s main stress-related hormones) tyrosine may also ease the adverse effects of environmental, psychosocial, and physical stress.
L-tyrosine is used to treat conditions such as mood disorder, poor coping ability, fatigue, low sex drive, low metabolism, and drug abuse (when combined with tryptophan). It can also improve endurance under stress and is effective as an appetite suppressant.
