L-Tyrosine is an amino acid which can be converted in the brain and adrenal glands into dopamine, norepinephrine and epinephrine (adrenaline), hormones that are depleted as a result of stress, overwork and certain types of medication. It is therefore an effective stress reduction medication.
If norepinephrine supplies are replenished, mental energy levels are improved and feelings of contentment and well-being often occur. It is thus an effective brain supplement. Conversion from L-Tyrosine to norepinephrine may be enhanced if the co-factor vitamins B6 and C are taken in conjunction with L-Tyrosine.
The cells in the adrenal medulla are known to synthesize and secrete norepinephrine and epinephrine, both of which cause smooth muscle (arterial) contraction, thus affecting blood pressure. If you have suffer from low or high blood pressure, caution should be exercised when supplementing with L-Tyrosine and you should consult a doctor.
L-Tyrosine is sometimes used as pain medication and/or depression medication. In the case of depression or pain, higher doses than suggested (1 or 2 tablets a day) can be required.
Those suffering from (various forms of) cancer such as melanoma are advised not to take L-Tyrosine, because this amino acid stimulates tumour growth. Migraine sufferers are advised not to take L-Tyrosine as it forms tyramine, a substance which may trigger migraines. Those suffering from the metabolic disorder phenylketonuria are advised not to take L-Tyrosine. Because L-Tyrosine can cause insomnia, it is recommended that an L-Tyrosine supplement be taken several hours before bedtime.
For all others, L-Tyrosine can enhance mental energy levels and lead to feelings of well-being.

Dosage and Use
Cancer patients should avoid taking L-phenylalanine and L-tyrosine. Certain cancers, such as melanoma, depend on these amino acids to fuel their growth. Supplemental use of L-phenylalanine and L-tyrosine may raise or normalize blood pressure. Insomnia may occur from over-stimulation if taken too close to bedtime. Individuals with the rare metabolic disorder phenylketonuria should avoid phenylalanine. Those suffering from migraine headaches should also avoid L-phenylalanine and L-tyrosine because they form tyramine, a substance that may trigger migraines.
