Tyrosine Increases Mental Function During Heat Exposure

Studies have shown that supplementing the amino acid tyrosine improved concentration. Tyrosine is a precursor to dopamine, a brain chemical that controls thought processes. A study from the United Kingdom showed that tyrosine supplements improved mental effort and vigilance in soccer players subjected to a 90-minute simulated match in the heat. Many researchers believe that central nervous system fatigue is an important reason that performance decreases in athletes during prolonged exercise. Tyrosine may improve mental function during intense training and competition. (European Journal of Applied Physiology, 115: 373-386, 2015)
