Supplemental L-Tyrosine has been used for stress reduction; research suggests it may also be helpful against chronic fatigue and narcolepsy. It has been used to help individuals suffering from anxiety, depression, allergies, and headaches, as well as persons undergoing withdrawal from drugs, including smoking and alcohol. It may also help people with Parkinson’s disease.
Natural sources of tyrosine include: almonds, avocados, bananas, dairy products, lima beans, pumpkin seeds, and sesame seeds. Tyrosine can also be produced from phenylalanine in the body. Supplements of L-tyrosine should not be taken at bedtime or with a high carbohydrate meal, no proteins so that it does not have to compete for absorption with other amino acids.
Persons taking monoamine oxidase (MAO) inhibitors, commonly prescribed for depression, should limit their intake of foods containing Tyrosine, and should not take any supplements containing L-Tyrosine, as it may lead to a sudden rise in blood pressure.
