Tyrosine is an amino acid that is required for the production of important brain chemicals (neurotransmitters) that help to support and enhance mood; concentration; memory and alertness. This amino acid is critical for the production of thyroid hormones and the synthesis of proteins; enzymes and muscle tissues in the body. Our Tyrosine Mood Food contains a highly potent and pure form of tyrosine that is free from any additives or fillers.”
The benefits of Tyrosine:Improved mood – Tyrosine is required for the production of neurotransmitters: dopamine; adrenalin and noradrenalin. Studies have shown that deficiencies of these brain chemicals are correlated with increased incidence of depression and other mood disorders. Tyrosine may act as a mood elevator; helping to stabilise mood and improve feelings of happiness and satisfaction.Increased focus and conentration – Due to tyrosine’s involvement in neurotransmitter production; it may help to improve focus; motivation and concentration. Tyrosine could serve as a useful amino acid prior to exercise or work; to help improve mental performance.Stress reduction – In times of stress; additional tyrosine may be needed; as stress depletes noradrenalin in the body. Tyrosine may assist in the management of stress and prolong the anti-stress effects of this brain chemical.Thyroid function – Tyrosine plays a critical role in the production of thyroid hormones T3 and T4. The thyroid gland is responsible for regulating metabolism; growth and development; body temperature and heart rate.Reduced cravings – Low dopamine levels have been associated with increased food cravings and excessive hunger. As dopamine works on the reward centre of the brain; maintaining healthy dopamine levels may assist in the management of addiction. Tyrosine may be helpful for those with food or alcohol addiction.Healthy weight – Due to tyrosine’s involvement in producing thyroid hormones; it may assist in the maintenance of a healthy weight range. The thyroid is responsible for regulating metabolism and controlling the metabolic rate for fat burning.
