Tyrosine is an amino acid that, when supplemented, may improve mood and memory, enhance cognitive abilities, increase focus, and reduce the adverse effects of stress. It promotes healthy brain chemistry and supports peak mental performance under adverse conditions. Also available as N-Acetyl L-Tyrosine (NALT), a more bioavailable form.
*Capsule variant contains approximately 300mg N-Acetyl L-Tyrosine per 1 capsule serving.
*Comes with a free measuring scoop.
The serving size of N-acetyl-L-tyrosine is around 300 mg. Some people take smaller doses more frequently throughout the day, but this is a good starting point in order to improve cognitive markers without taking too high a dosage.
The standard recommended dosage of L-tyrosine for a healthy adult is 500-1000 mg daily, divided into two to three doses and taken 30 minutes before meals.
Higher daily dosages can trigger a variety of side effects. Anecdotally, L-Tyrosine tends to be taken approximately 30-60 minutes before any acute stressor (this tends to be exercise).
