N-Acetyl L-Tyrosine (NALT) is derived from L-Tyrosine, one of the non-essential amino acids. It is sometimes regarded as a greater supplement than standard L-Tyrosine because it can be more readily absorbed by the body.
This product is Kosher certified.
L-Tyrosine is traditionally made use of in the process of protein synthesis. It is a nonessential amino acid, which means that the body alone can manufacture large enough amounts that it need not be supplemented through dietary means. Tyrosine may also be used to form neurotransmitters that feed directly into the brain.
Tyrosine is also a precursor that eventually becomes, through a process of synthesis, at least one of a few different hormones that is essential to bodily and mental development. Melanin, a chemical which determines the pigmentation of skin and the degree to which harmful sun’s rays can penetrate the skin, also needs Tyrosine in order to be correctly manufactured.
When there is a deficiency of Tyrosine in the body, issues can include general weakness and fatigue, decreased protein levels, decrease in muscle mass, as well as possibly irreversible damage to the liver.
