L-Tyrosine is well-known for boosting the brain’s dopamine metabolism; dopamine is essential for mood and motivation, not to mention problem-solving and relaxed wakefulness. N-Acetyl L-Tyrosine is a much more bioavailable form than the kind commonly sold in shops, meaning that rather than simply watching it pass by without being able to metabolise it, your brain actually gets the benefit.
What is N-Acetyl L-Tyrosine?
A form of tyrosine that has undergone acetylation, a process that makes it easier for the body to absorb. Precursor to neurotransmitters norepinephrine ephedrine and dopamine.
What is N-Acetyl L-Tyrosine used for?
Take a look at a selection of studies carried out on N-Acetyl L-Tyrosine:
"Tyrosine significantly decreased symptoms, adverse moods, and performance impairments in subjects who exhibited average or greater responses to these environmental conditions" View the study
"Cognitive studies employing neuropsychological measures found that tyrosine loading acutely counteracts decrements in working memory and information processing that are induced by demanding situational conditions" View the study
"Tyrosine was found to improve the performance on two cognitive tasks, which were performed 1 h after administration of the medication and which could be characterized as highly sensitive to stress" View the study
Focus and Memory
"Tyrosine improves cognitive performance and reduced blood pressure in cadets" View the study
"Tyrosine administration was associated with a significant amelioration of the usual performance decline on a psychomotor task and a significant reduction in lapse probability on a high-event-rate vigilance task...may prove useful in counteracting performance decrements during episodes of sustained work coupled with sleep loss" View the study
