What is it and where does it come from?
L-tyrosine is a nonessential organic amino acid that is a building block of protein. It is an organic amino acid due to the presence of a carbon atom in its makeup.
It is a precursor of the neurotransmitter dopamine, as well as a precursor to the hormones norepinephrine and epinephrine. L-Tyrosine is also a precursor for the skin pigment melanin. The body can make L-tyrosine from the amino acid phenylalanine. L-tyrosine rich foods include animal meat, wheat products, oatmeal and seafood.
How much should be taken? Are there any side effects?
At this time clear dosing guidelines have not yet been established, so it is best to do what is known as "tolerance mapping".
Take a small dosage for one week, note the benefits and the side effects, and increase the dosage until the benefits are maximised and the side effects minimised. Over time the two will converge and you will hit the optimal dose.
Many protein powders on the market are fortified with amino acids, including tyrosine. With this in mind, pay particular attention to how much tyrosine you are ingesting from all sources. Individuals suffering from psychiatric conditions should consult a qualified medical practitioner prior to the use of supplemental L-tyrosine.
If you do not feel comfortable following the above-described procedure, it is always best to follow the directions as prescribed on the products label.
