I'm a natural body builder and was wondering about products I use, I take whey protein everyday and cycle a creatine (arganine, tyrosine, L-carnatine)?

I'm a natural body builder and was wondering about products I use, I take whey protein everyday and cycle a creatine (arganine, tyrosine, L-carnatine)?

Forget supplements.: There are no legitimate studies of any size that warrant supplement use. If eating protein made muscles, everybody in America could benchpress a Cadillac with their pinky finger. Increased muscle mass is only due to resistant training of several hours a day, several days a week for months if not years. High protein diets have long been known to be unhealthy. Many forgot this for a while, ...Read more

If l- tyrosine is taken at night can it keep awake or cause insomnia?

If l- tyrosine is taken at night can it keep awake or cause insomnia?

It may also result in lower serotonin levels (important for sleep). I always advise my patients who take it to take it in the morning or early afternoon. If you took it and can't sleep this should pass within a few hours. Try some exercise! ...Read more

How long will it take to effects of l-tyrosine?

Unknown: Assuming it has any effect on adhd, which is not established, it could take weeks or months to have any notable effect, since you are trying to build up brain supplies in the right areas high enough to overcome a presumed deficit in Dopamine or norepinephrine. My professional opinion is that it is highly unlikely one would get a marked effect, ever. ...Read more

Different: 5htp is a precursor of serotonin, an inhibitory neurotransmitter. L-tyrosine is a precursor of the dopaminergic neurotransmitters Epinephrine and norepinephrine, which are stimulatory neurotransmitters.

Can l tyrosine cause prolactin levels to increase?

Can l tyrosine cause prolactin levels to increase?

Should not: If it has any effect at all, tyrosine should decrease prolactin. It is the immediate precursor for dopamine, which is released from the hypothalamus onto the pituitary and, among other things, affects prolacting release; however, the effect of increased Dopamine would be to decrease prolactin. Drugs that block Dopamine receptors (antipsychotics) can cause marked increases in prolactin levels. ...Read more

Does l-tyrosine help with hypothyroidism?

Yes, if deficient: Our bodies produce thyroid hormone by combining tyrosine with iodine. Thus, if one is deficient in tyrosine it might cause hypothyroidism. Our body synthesizes tyrosine from phenylalanine, so that deficiency (which is not unusual) can also cause hypothyroidism. If low in tyrosine then supplementing should help: http://ezinearticles.
