Product Description

We are being exposed to large amounts of the agricultural herbicide, Round-up (and similar herbicides) that contains the toxin, Glyphosate.  Roundup kills weeds by disrupting the shikimate metabolic pathway in plants.  Plants use the shikimate pathway to produce the aromatic amino acids Tyrosine and Tryptophan.  The active form of of Tryptophan is 5-HTP - we use 5-HTP in metabolic processes.  The shikimate pathway does not exist in people, but it does exist in plants and the beneficial microbes in our intestinal tract.  So humans, who do not have the shikimate pathway cannot make Tyrosine or Tryptophan and depend upon food sources and beneficial microbes in our intestinal tract to manufacture these amino acids.  They are essential amino acids because we cannot make them and must obtain them from food or intestinal microbes.

Neurotransmitters Made with Tyrosine and Tryptophan

Tyrosine is a precursor to dopamine and serotonin and norepinephrine, as well as thyroid hormones T3 and T4. 5-HTP (the active form of Tryptophan) is a precursor serotonin and melatonin.  Multiple sources of evidence indicate that neuropsychiatric disorders such as schizophrenia, depression, bipolar disorder, autism and ADHD are directly or indirectly associated with altered monoamine functions.

Neurotransmitter Levels Naturally Fluctuate during a 24-Hour Day

During the day Tyrosine promotes alertness and suppresses sleep inducing neurotransmitters. At night,Tryptophan promotes production of sleep (by producing Melatonin) and suppresses neurotransmitters for alertness and being awake.  (During the day, Melatonin converts to Serotonin).  This is why, it is recommended to take Tyrosine and 5-HTP, but to take Tyrosine in the morning and 5-HTP at night.  The dosage and levels in our amino set is the ratio that is used in alternative protocols.
