Tyrosine makes important brain chemicals that regulate appetite, pain sensitivity, and the body’s reaction to stress. It helps to normalize the functions of the thyroid, pituitary, and adrenal glands. It can also help to ease sensitivity to pain.
Some symptoms of tyrosine deficiency could be hypothyroidism, low blood pressure, chronic fatigue and slow metabolism. The body cannot make its own tyrosine and this may lead to a variety of mental disorders, anxiety, depression, and low libido.
