Question: Eric, Why the l-tyrosine? What do you find that it is doing for you? Thanks.
How are you?
As of late, many Metabolic Typing advisors have been sharing some really cool information regarding neurotransmitter testing and amino acid supplementation. I am working on my Neurogistics neurotransmitter certification, but since this is one of the fundamental homeostatic controls of the body it certainly is a big piece to the puzzle of building health.
There are multiple reasons why an individual might benefit from amino acid supplementation and it is something that I want to stress should be done with caution and not haphazardly. Ideally you would want to get with someone that is certified in Neurogistics training; because just like anything else, it is quite specific to the *individual*.
I would recommend to you to take a look at the following article to perhaps get a better idea of what I am talking about.
So, for me-due to my lifestyle, Metabolic Type, etc. I am low in norepinephrine. One of the best ways to address this is by taking l-tyrosine.
Once you read the article, you will totally "get" what I am trying to say here.
