Tyrosine Promotes Deep Thoughts

Back where I come from, we have universities— seats of great learning, where men go to become great thinkers. And when they come out, they think deep thoughts and with no more brains than you have. But they have one thing you haven’t got: tyrosine supplements. Dutch researchers found that consuming supplemental tyrosine increased the capacity for deep thoughts (concentration) but had no effect on creativity. Tyrosine is a precursor to dopamine, a brain chemical that controls thought processes. Test subjects took a single dose of either two grams of L-tyrosine or placebo (fake tyrosine) before performing a series of mental tasks. Tyrosine improved concentration, and could be an important supplement for athletes, students and magazine writers. (Psychological Research, published online September 26, 2014)
