How Can L Arginine L Tyrosine Help With My Thyroid
No way to tell: Unfortunately, dietary supplements are regulated as foods (as opposed to drugs). As such, they are not required to undergo the same testing (or prove their claims to be true). Also, since no third party testing of their product is required - the ingredients listed don't even have to match what is in the bottle. Wish I had a better answer. .. Good luck! ...Read more
No. Sorry. L-tyrosine, the amino acid the thyroid clans uses to make thyroid hormone, is not in limiting supply. If your thyroid needs "healing", I'm guessing you mean you're hypothyroid. No treatment we have in medicine will heal hypothyroidism. We treat hypothyroidism with thyroid hormone replacement...cheap, easy, & perfect!
To your health! ...Read more
With hypothyroidism, does l-tyrosine raise or lower thyroid levels if your at a stable level? (on synthroid) I want to use it for mood support. Thanks
If I have depression and I have no thyroid problems, I can take the amino acid L-tyrosine to burn fat and have a better mood?
Its in your food: L-tyrosine is already in much of the food you eat. Watch out for sensational promises by charming supplement salespeople and companies. ...Read more
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.

Somewhat: Swedish medical center found some benefit for add with tyrosine, but the benefits lasted only a couple weeks. Also advised using acetyl-l-tyrosine instead of l-tyrosine due to fewer negative side effects & lower dose used. Discuss any supplements with fp before taking them to make sure there are no serious drug interactions with your other meds. ...Read more
Doubt it: At a listed age of 19, your growth centers are likely closed and no further linear growth would be expected. An x-ray of your wrist and hand could be reviewed for open growth centers, but if they show closure you are finished growing taller. If open, a balanced diet, proper rest and regular exercise will support proper growth. Diet supplements or hormone injections only help those with deficiency ...Read more
Safety, unclear need: L-arginine is a dietary supplement. It is made by the body, but is used as a supplement in various adult disorders. No specific indications have been identified in chidlren and adolescents, and it is a substance that, in overdose, can cause brain edema and even death. Oberdose is easier in children because of their smaller size. So, no clear value and possible risk: not a good combination. ...Read more
Effective for cold: Sores by mouth, if taken early enough, and is an amino acid, so it's relatively safe to take. Seem to be a popular home remedy. However, if you are using for something else, then it may or may not be effective depending on the diagnosis. So, if it's in the groin area, it may not be as effective. Make sure your pcp can check your area of concern to diagnose it and treat it quickly. ...Read more
Not optimal: It is not a standard treatment and falls in the category of alternative medicine, which is not necessarily a bad thing, but not necessarily a good thing either. It can increase anxiety. If your depression is severe enough to affect your functioning (work, relationships. Etc.) or cause significant distress, see a mental health professional for an assessment and develop a meaningful treatment plan. ...Read more
Possibly: Every nutritional supplement can lead to side effects. Side effects are variable by individual. As a geneticist, I have seen patients with a rare condition called tyrosonemia where they have excess tyrosine in their blood. In these patients, joint aches is not part of the syndrome. They tend to have more vomiting, diarrhea and generalized weakness. ...Read more
No sensation effect: L-arginine relaxes blood vessels & thus might increase blood flow to the penis & thus might help with or enhance erectile function but no reason why it would "restore" penile sensitivity. Also, please note that L-arginine is frequently combined with other compounds which might be why some men report improved erections. A healthy diet & exercise are best both for libido & sexual performance ...Read more
Don't spend much $: Arginine is a naturally-occurring Amino Acid in all completely proteins; there's a popular claim that it releases growth hormone from the pituitary gland but whether this is really helpful isn't clear. A protein meal after a workout is a good idea for a bodybuilder, and creatine helps bulk, but most other supplements and advice are worth little. Train hard, stay trim, enjoy what you do! ...Read more
Avoid: Not sure about how well n-acetyl-l-tyrosine is absorbed and metablized in the body. However, the base component, tyrosine is an Amino Acid that is in the precursor pathway for Dopamine production. Dopamine is an important neurotransmitter in certain parts of the brain. Prozac (fluoxetine) and ssris have been shown to impact Dopamine levels. So, I am not sure what effect they would have in combination. ...Read more
Save your money.: There's a footnote about tyrosine and depression in a book by werbach, 1991, but what it says and what evidence is used is not online. There's no current evidence of well-controlled clinical trials that document any benefits from L-tyrosine. There are a lot of references that it helps on sites that sell supplements, but no traceable references. Until studies are available to be reviewed, forget it ...Read more
Forget this garbage.: Unless advised to take extra amino acids by a professional doctor, for a genetic lack of them or for a proven deficiency, save your money & lower risk from chronic use. These are 2 amino acids, present in most protein. The last thing anybody in the US needs is any more protein! If you get adequate protein from food which happens, unless you are starving, extra protein only increases your risk. ...Read more
