How to Use It

Most people should not supplement with L-tyrosine. Some human research with people suffering from a variety of conditions used 100 mg per 2.2 pounds of body weight, equivalent to about 7 grams per day for an average-sized person. The appropriate amount to use in people with PKU is not known, therefore, the monitoring of blood levels by a physician is recommended.

Where to Find It

Dairy products, meats, fish, wheat, oats, and most other protein-containing foods contain tyrosine.

Possible Deficiencies

Some people affected by PKU are deficient in tyrosine. Tyrosine levels are occasionally low in depressed people.1 Any person losing large amounts of protein, such as those with some kidney diseases, may be deficient in a few amino acids, including tyrosine.2
