Amino acids are classified as either essential or non-essential.
Essential amino acids cannot be synthesised in the body and must be obtained from the diet, whereas non-essential amino acids, whilst still essential for health, can be synthesised in the body and are therefore not classified as 'essential'.
Tyrosine is considered a non-essential amino acid because the body can make it from phenylalanine.
It is important to brain nutrition because it is a precursor of the neurotransmitters - dopamine, adrenaline and noradrenaline.
It also acts as a precursor for certain hormones, including thyroxine and for the major human pigment melanin.
As with all our amino acids, Lamberts L-Tyrosine is presented in its free-form for maximum absorption.
Each capsule provides a full 500mg of L-Tyrosine.
