Previous studies have demonstrated the ability of tyrosine (TYR), the amino acid precursor of catecholamines, to increase blood pressure in rats made hypotensive by haemorrhage. Other studies have shown that supplementation of the diet with TYR can reverse certain neurochemical and behavioural consequences associated with acute stress. Such studies… CONTINUE READING
