L-Tyrosine Tyrosine has several functions and health benefits. Tyrosine is a constituent of amino sugars and amino lipids, which have important roles throughout the body. It is important to brain nutrition as it is a precursor of the neurotransmitters, dopamine and noradrenaline. It is also an important part of peptides, such as enkephalins, which serve as pain relievers in the brain. Tyrosine is a non-essential amino acid that helps regulate mood and stimulates the nervous system. Tyrosine is the precursor for hormones such as thyroid hormone and is needed to manufacture the pigment, melanin. Although your body manufactures tyrosine from phenylalanine, you can also get phenylalanine from certain foods, including almonds, avocados, bananas, dairy foods, beans, and seeds. There are some people, however, that have a condition that makes it impossible for them to convert phenylalanine into tyrosine, which is called phenylketonuria (PKU). For these people tyrosine is an essential acid, and supplementation may be necessary.
