The non-essential amino acid L-Tyrosine has been used by many in the health & fitness industries due to certain potential benefits that can improve mental performance, which may also lead to physical performance in or out of the gym.

Within the body, L-Tyrosine contributes to the production of the neurotransitters dopamine and norepinephrine, whilst also being a precursor to thyroxine and triiodothyronine in addition to the pigment melanin.

– It is created from the amino acid phenylalanine.

Whilst L-Tyrosone is technically classified as a non-essential amino acid because it can be synthesized from phenylalanine, there are times where it can be classed as a conditionally-essential amino acid, but why?

Even though the body can create most of the non-essential amino acids (like L-Tyrosine) from glucose and ammonia, L-Tyrosine needs phenylalanine as previously mentioned. But if phenylalanine isn’t available in sufficient levels tyrosine can then become an essential amino acid which then causes limitations on protein synthesis.

Potential Benefits

Supplementation of the amino acid on its own, which is a white like powder, appears to have an anti-stress like effect. It’s clear to see that this benefit may have applications in the gym which puts the body under stress in addition to regular life.

Other effects may include:

– Improving alertness
– Fat loss benefits
– Relieving ailments such as mental fatigue, burnout and anxiety

Worth Noting

It has been noted that due to L-Tyrosine having a somewhat stimulating effect, it may interact/affect other supplements or pharmaceuticals taken which should be taken into consideration.
