Vita-Fit L-Tyrosine provides 500mg per tablet of this amino acid which is sometimes recommended by practitioners as helpful for weight loss, clinical depression, Parkinson's Disease, Attention Deficit Disorder and phenylketonuria. Also may elevate mood, is involved in production of melanin pigment of skin and hair, is important for adrenal, thyroid and pituitary gland function, helps control appetite, controls body fat levels, and is involved in metabolism of phenylalanine.
Tyrosine is easily made in the body from the amino acid phenylalanine. It is a precursor to the adrenal hormones adrenaline and noradrenaline, to the neurotransmitter dopamine, and the thyroid hormones which are all stimulants to metabolism. In addition, the adrenal hormones help the body cope with stress and the thyroid hormones are needed for normal growth and development.
Tyrosine may stimulate growth hormone and can act as a mild appetite suppressant. It may also be useful in the control of depression and anxiety.
Tyrosine is needed for the production of melanin pigment in skin and hair. Because it is involved in the production of epinephrine and dopamine, it can be a nutritional agent for helping to relieve nervous tension, stress and mild anxiety.


Adults - take 1-2 tablets daily, twenty minutes before food, or as directed by your health professional.

Best one I've triec Review by
  • star

Of all the brands I have tried this is the best! I found results by the 2nd dose. Under a lot of stress and strain so advised to give these a go, They have dramatically reduced my anxiety levels, low mood and feeling tearful. I wish I had thought to buy them here as the big bottle is such great value. I'm too scared to stop taking them now as they make the days seem calmer. They are a large tablet but a large glass of water does the trick.

Good product but they are hard to swallow Review by
  • star

I noticed other reviewers having issue with swallowing these pills. I have to agree, they have no coating and the edges are rather sharp. I never had this problem before.

Too hard to take Review by

These tablets do work well but I had to stop taking them because I had so much trouble swallowing them, they are very big and having no coating on them just made it too horrible for me.

Great product in quickly restoring mental capability in stressful/teary situations when emotions are out of control. Seems to put you back to the position you were in prior to the stressful/emotional event enabling you to carry on the day without brooding or falling apart again!

Highly recommend!

I've been using this for years for my thyroid and find it works well. The tablets are on the large side so take a bit of getting used to when swallowing. Compares well to more expensive brands of tyrosine.

I'm using these as an alternative to my prescribed anti depressant, and I've noticed my mood has stabilised somewhat, and I don't have the side effects that I was getting with my prescription, so I am please with them so far.
