L-Tyrosine is a white, crystalline non-essential amino acid; its name was derived from the Greek word "tyros" meaning "cheese" as it was first isolated from the hydrolysis of casein, which is the main protein in cheese. L-Tyrosine plays an important role as a precursor in the production of the catecholamine hormones such as epinephrine (also known as adrenaline), thyroid hormones, and several neurotransmitters including dopamine, which makes L-Tyrosine a crucial component in supporting vitality and mood. Some individuals equally use this amino acid for decreasing cognitive fatigue, as well as aiding the body cope with a variety of physically stressful situations, such as extended wakefulness, exposure to cold, and excessive noise.
