L-tyrosine may just be an amino acid, but it is responsible for a range of important functions in the human body. Arguably, it can be said that it is only appreciated when deficiency occurs, making it a good idea to supplement with it, even though it is produced by the body in small amounts.
Of particular interest is the way L-tyrosine acts to support the health of your immune system. Let’s check out how it does this now.
May Help Combat Stress
Stress should be considers the number one health malady that affects the world today, including that manifesting as physical or psychological in nature. Even though psychological stress is not taken seriously by many people, it is only when these effects translate to physical ones are they appreciated.
For instance, suppression of the immune system is one major complication of a high stress burden, or high blood cortisol levels. Chronic stress decreases lymphocyte levels, which play an important part in warding off pathogens, but also cause a state of low-grade inflammation that simply results in a worn down immune system.
L-tyrosine is a necessary precursor to the neurotransmitter serotonin, which combats stress.
May Help Promote Sleep
Did you know that insomnia is one of the leading causes of a weakened immune system? Sleep and your natural circadian rhythm play an important part in optimizing immune function , whether that be for cellular recovery and turnover or just the hormonal and neurochemical “resets”.
L-tyrosine, being a precursor of the neurotransmitter serotonin can help promote restful sleep by fostering a positive mood and warding off anxious thoughts. This is why you feel relaxed and sleepy following a meal high in L-tyrosine, such as cheese or turkey.
L-Tyrosine May Help Support Weight Loss
Another important hormone L-tyrosine is necessary to synthesise is the thyroid hormone , which is formed by the combination of iodine and the said amino acid. This is why this amino acid is said to promote weight loss, with low levels associated with lower thyroid hormone synthesis.
It may also help enhance exercise tolerance, which when combined with increased metabolism can accelerate weight loss and also help improve immune system function, especially if you have underlying metabolic disorders.
