What is Scitec Nutrition Tyrosine
L-Tyrosine is a conditionally essential amino acid, which occurs naturally in foods, mainly as part of proteins. It is one of the 22 amino acids that are used by cells to synthesize proteins. However, athletes and bodybuilders supplement with Tyrosine for other reasons.
Why take Tyrosine?
Tyrosine is an amino acid and nutrient precursor for approximately 90% of the brain's 3 stimulatory catecholamines (dopamine, norepinephrine, and epinephrine).
For a dietary neurotransmitter precursor to being important:
- Blood concentrations must vary with dietary intake.
- It must cross the blood-brain barrier.
- Its transport systems must be able to accommodate more precursor than what is regularly available.
- The levels of the precursor are what limit neurotransmitter formation.
Since tyrosine meets these qualifications, it's evident that a large increase in dietary tyrosine will lead to increases in both brain and peripheral catecholamine concentrations. Human studies confirm that large doses of tyrosine (33mg/kg, 3x per day) can increase blood and urinary catecholamines by up to 25%.
By increasing brain neurotransmitter concentrations, tyrosine can help increase attention and combat performance decrements during sustained efforts, especially when sleep-deprived. In addition to this mild stimulant effect, tyrosine may act as an "anti-stress supplement", suppressing rises in cortisol and the norepinephrine depletion associated with the stress response. Finally, tyrosine supplementation may reduce reaction time.
