L- Tyrosine, an amino acid, is shown to increase
concentration, decrease symptoms of anxiety and depression. L-Tyrosine is best
used in conjunction with vitamin B6 (also used in the ATTEND formula).
L-Tyrosine is a precursor of the neurotransmitters
norepinephrine and dopamine, which regulate mood. Therefore, L-Tyrosine acts as a mood elevator. A lack of adequate amounts of L-tyrosine can lead to a
deficiency of norepinephrine in the brain, which can result in depression.
L-Tyrosine also suppresses the appetite and helps to reduce body fat. Good
natural sources of L-Tyrosine include sesame seeds, pumpkin seeds, dairy
products, lima beans, almonds, bananas and avocados.
Amino acids promote the production of various
neurotransmitters and enzymes critically needed in brain metabolism. Amino acids
allow smooth, balanced cognition and fluid transition from thought to
disciplined action and aid in the reduction of stress, frustration and cognitive
Amino acids are the building blocks of protein
in the body, they are essential for the synthesis of structural
protein, enzymes and some hormones and neurotransmitters. Amino
acids also affect exercise metabolisms.
There are 20 different amino acids that are
needed by the body to create the various proteins needed for body
growth and repair. Of these 20, 11 are created by the body and the
remaining nine, which are called “essential amino acids,” cannot
be produced by the body. The nine essential amino acids therefore
must come from diet. Histidine, isoleucine, leucine, lysine,
methionine, phenylalanine, threonine, tryptophan, and valine are
essential amino acids. The nonessential amino acids are arginine,
alanine, asparagine, aspartic acid, carntitine, cysteine,
glutamine, glutamic acid, glycine, proline, serine, and tyrosine.
All 20 amino acids are necessary for health.
Below are some of the major functions amino
acids are involved in;
_ They empower vitamins and minerals to do their specific jobs
_ Some amino acids can pass through the blood-brain barrier which
exists to maintain the health of the brain, the brain’s chemistry
and its processes.
_ Act as neurotransmitters or precursors; some are needed to send
and receive messages.
_ Aid in communication with nerve cells in other parts of the
Foods high in protein, such as meat and
poultry, fish, eggs, and dairy products, are the richest dietary
sources of the essential amino acids.
