SOLGARL-TYROSINE 500 mg . L-Tyrosine is an amino acid present in free form and found in the blood and tissues of the nervous system. It is synthesized from the amino acid phenylalanine. Amino acids are the fundamental components of proteins and are necessary for many internal functions of the body. It is divided into essential and non essentials". Essential amino acids are those that the body cannot produce, but must be obtained from the diet to maintain good health. The body can also use amino acids to create hormones, enzymes, neurotransmitters, antibodies, and nutrient transporters. An insufficient supply of essential amino acids increases the body's need for non-essential amino acids that it must obtain through the diet.
Tyrosine is a nonessential amino acid and is found in dairy, meats, fish, eggs, beans, oats, and wheat. Tyrosine is a precursor to the stress hormones adrenaline and norepinephrine, which are responsible for the body's "fight or flight" reaction. The chemical messengers involved in brain processes also use tyrosine.
