L-Tyrosine is actually a non-essential amino acid, which means that the body can manufacture it naturally, without having to rely on it coming from dietary sources. Just because we can manufacture it naturally however, this does not mean that we won’t benefit by increasing the amounts that are present within our bodies. This amino acid is found in each and every cell within the human body, and it plays a number vital roles in our health and well-being, and not just those that happen to be related to the health of the brain either. In actual fact, over the years, as well as proving very beneficial for our mental health and well-being, L-Tyrosine has also been found to help increase a person’s muscle mass and post-workout recovery rates in the process.
