More about L-Tyrosine 500mg
L-Tyrosine, or tyrosine, is an amino acid that is the precursor for dopamine, noradrenaline, and thyroid hormones. Tyrosine has important implications for different systems in the body, such as neurotransmitters and hormones.
Dopamine plays an essential role in executive functioning, motivation, arousal, and motor control, among others. In turn, dopamine can be converted into norepinephrine (noradrenaline) and epinephrine (adrenaline) which play a role in the body's natural fight-or-flight response. Lack of dopamine can thus lead to a wide variety of symptoms including memory problems -and loss, loss of concentration, lethargy, fatigue, libido loss and movement problems.
Noradrenaline, or norepinephrine, is a neurotransmitter and hormone found in the body. The function of norepinephrine is mainly to manage stress and make you perform better in these situations. Among other things, this means that your blood pressure rises so that more blood goes to your body and brain, allowing you to think and perform better. In addition, your digestion is halted for a while to save energy. When norepinephrine is deficient, it can generally lead to feelings of sadness and lethargy. Too much of this little substance can lead to feeling tense and anxious.
Thyroid hormones are hormones produced and secreted by the thyroid gland. Thyroid hormones play an important role in almost all body tissues and organs. For example, the thyroid affects appetite, food absorption, heart rate, energy, blood pressure, and much more. When everything is working properly, enough thyroid hormones are produced so that your body can function properly. When lacking, various bodily processes are disrupted and this can lead to excessive sweating, sluggishness or fatigue, slow metabolism, palpitations, and (unexpectedly much) weight loss, among other things.
Neurotransmitters are synthesized in specific areas of the brain, but eventually, they influence regions systematically. So even though tyrosine directly affects dopamine and thyroid hormones, it also has an indirect impact on the other neurotransmitter systems.
Under high stress, the neurotransmitters can function less well which can lead to a compromised metabolism and nervous system. So, supplementing tyrosine is thought to be a good way to increase all those neurotransmitter levels so it can support you in stressful moments.
