Semi-essential amino acid that intervenes in deficiency of phenylalanine, essential amino acid, in fundamental synthesis processes.
L-Tyrosine is an amino acid with adaptogenic properties that is the basis for the synthesis of numerous neurotransmitters such as dopamine, adrenaline and northadrenaline, which are essential for the body's adaptive processes to intense and sudden psycho-physical stress.
