is a non-essential amino acid, but is made in the body from
phenylalanine (an essential amino acid). It is very important to
metabolism because it is a precursor of adrenaline, norepinephrine and
dopamine and thyroid hormones. In addition, Tyrosine also promotes the
healthy functioning of the adrenal and pituitary glands. The adrenal
gland regulates the stress hormones; therefore, it is important to
supplement with tyrosine during times of stress. Recent studies
indicate that supplementation of Tyrosine may help to lessen effects of
stress. Researchers theorize that this is due to the fact that Tyrosine
is the precursor for epinephrine, a neurotransmitter that helps manage
the body's response to stress. Tyrosine was found to be effective in
alleviating stress and increasing mental alertness in a study
con-ducted on U.S. Marines who were sleep deprived.
