Natural amino acid in several hormones
Tyrosine is an amino acid, which, like all other amino acids, helps build protein in the body. Tyrosine is, for example, a component in the body's production of thyroid hormones as well as dopamine and norepinephrine. Tyrosine is naturally present in certain protein-rich foods, but a supplement may be appropriate for those who wish to get a little extra of the amino acid.

Dopamine and thyroid hormone
Dopamine, as many people know, is a real feel-good hormone. But what many people don’t know is that dopamine can be used for the production of adrenaline and norepinephrine. These two hormones are released in situations where you need to be extra focused and alert, for example when working out. The thyroid hormones, in turn, play a role in the body's metabolism.
