 L-TYROSINE 60 capsules OUR PRICE $12.97 SALE PRICE $11.47

L-Tyrosine is an amino acid your body uses with other nutrients to make L-dopa, dopamine, norepinephrine, and epinephrine.

L-Tyrosine is the raw material your thyroid uses to make hormones T3 and T4, which stimulate every cell in your body, including your brain cells.

  • Sex drive

  • Adrenal Exhaustion
  • Depression or low mood

Other Uses

  1. Tyrosine can be used to help you wean off coffee.
  2. It has helped cocaine addicts successfully kick their habit.
  3. Several studies indicate that l-tyrosine benefits people with Alzheimer’s disease and dementia.

Would YOU benefit from taking tyrosine?


If you have any of the health concerns listed above and you would like to know if tyrosine could work for you, fill out the questionnaire below.  Add up the points on any of the questions that you say “yes, that is me”.  Total your score for the entire questionnaire.

If you do not have any of the health issues above, then it is unlikely that the tyrosine will be of benefit to you.

3___Do you often feel depressed – the flat, bored, apathetic kind?

1___Are you low on physical or mental energy? OR

1___Do you feel tired a lot; have to push yourself to exercise?

2___Is your drive, enthusiasm and motivation quota on the low side?

3___Do you have difficulty focusing or concentrating?

1.5___Do you need a lot of sleep?

1.5___Are you slow to wake up in the morning?

3___Are you easily chilled?  Do you have cold hands or feet?

2___Do you tend to put on weight too easily?

3___Do you feel the need to get more alert and motivated by consuming a lot of coffee

or other “upper” like sugar, diet soda, or cocaine?  (My note: this could look like


 If you have 6 or more points, then I would say absolutely that tyrosine would be worth trying.  If you have 4 or 5 points, then it could still be worth a try. If you have 3 or less points, I do not think it would be worth trying.


Begin with 500 mg to 1000 mg of L-Tyrosine first thing in the AM. Try this dosage for one week. Most people will notice a clear boost of energy, focus and concentration. So much so that it makes it very easy to wean down or cut out their morning coffee.

L-Tyrosine should not be taken with any protein food (such as milk, cheese, eggs, ham, etc.) because you will absorb less of this amino acid if other types of protein are being digested at the same time. You can take L-Tyrosine with some water, juice or fruit but wait at least thirty minutes after taking L-Tyrosine before eating anything containing protein.

After the first week, you can experiment with different dosages. Some people find that they feel best when they take L-Tyrosine a second time in the day, either before lunch or mid-afternoon. I wouldn’t recommend taking it much later than 4:00 PM because it does have an energizing effect and you don’t want it to interfere with a good night’s sleep.

Some people notice the boost in the morning but don’t feel the boost when they take it in the afternoon. Some people notice that three in the morning is better than two.

You can take as little as one capsule (500 mg) in the morning up to as many as three capsules (1500 mg) before breakfast and up to three capsules (1500 mg) mid-afternoon. The afternoon dosage should be at least two hours after you ate last and you should wait at least thirty minutes before eating any protein.

The L-Tyrosine will still give you some benefit if you can’t get the timing exact.

At the three-month mark (or sooner) you should try taking a lesser dosage. The goal would be to keep reducing your dosage until you are not taking it anymore. However, if you felt better at a higher dosage, then take it. Listen to your body.

There are more details for taking tyrosine in the Adrenal Rejuvenation e-manual, “Recharge Your Batteries”.


If you want to get a good result with L-Tyrosine, you must be taking it along with your Total Health Pack. You can only get the benefits you desire if there are enough vitamin/minerals available to assist the L-Tyrosine to convert into the needed neurotransmitter.

Both L-Tryptophan and 5-HTP are known to raise serotonin.

L-TRYPTOPHAN 90 capsules OUR PRICE $14.97 SALE PRICE $12.97

5-HTP 90 capsules Our Price $13.97 SALE PRICE $11.97

L-Tryptophan converts to 5-HTP which then converts to serotonin so the main purpose of Tryptophan (or 5-HTP) is to help you overcome depression or low moods that may or may not accompany anxiety.

Other conditions that may respond well to Tryptophan (or 5-HTP): Post Traumatic Stress Disorder (along with Tyrosine and GABA), Sleep Apnea (take before bed) Menopausal and PMS mood related problems (take during day as needed), Fibromyalgia, TMJ or Migraines.

Dosages range from 220 mg to 3,000 mg of L-Tryptophan (take one zero off for dosages with 5-HTP).  L-Tryptophan is best taken on an empty stomach (wait 20 minutes before eating) and 5-HTP can go with food.  Both can be taken all at once or in divided doses.

To decide whether you should use L-Tryptophan or 5-HTP and how to use it, I recommend reading my free Health Solution here…

MERRY MIND 30 (Omega 3 containing 1,000 mg of EPA 100 mg of DHA) 30 capsules

Depression, Sadness, ADD

OUR PRICE $28.97 SALE PRICE $25.97

Our Wild Omega 3 improves cognitive function, supports heart health, and reduces inflammation.  Our Merry Mind delivers these great benefits but ALSO works specifically to target mood enhancement, help combat depression and correct ADD behaviours as well.  This is due to the higher EPA to DHA ratio.

As reported in Psychology Today…. “We’ve known for a few years that people who eat a diet rich in fish are less likely to be depressed. But new research shows that one nutrient in fish might actually be more effective against depression than traditional antidepressants. The nutrient is an omega-3 fatty acid called EPA (eicosapentaenoic acid).

British scientists gave a group of patients with stubborn depression a daily dose of EPA. After three months, over two thirds of the group reported a 50% reduction in their symptoms—particularly feelings of sadness and pessimism, inability to work, sleeplessness and low libido. All of the patients had previously tried other medications, including Prozac, other SSRIs and tricyclic antidepressants, the researchers reported in the Archives of General Psychiatry.”

Rules For Taking Merry Mind

  1. Do not expect Merry Mind to work overnight. Often it will take at least 3 months to start to see the effects of it.
  2. Always take it with food. If you get ‘fish burps’, try taking it mid-meal and with protein & healthy fats.

With the risks of toxicity in fish oil, it is important to go with a company like New Roots who are the leaders in the industry for quality assurance of potency and purity. Therefore, we only carry the New Roots brand of Omega 3 and Merry Mind.
