L-Tyrosine is an amino acid that is used to produce noradrenaline and dopamine. It is one of the 22 amino acids used by cells to synthesize proteins. It is considered a nonessential amino acid, as the body can produce L-Tyrosine from dietary L-Phenylalanine by way of the phenylalanine hydroxylase enzyme. The body then can convert L-Tyrosine into L-DOPA, using the tyrosine hydroxylase enzyme. This is considered a rate-limiting step, as the body can up/downregulate the enzymes to control how much of a specific amino acid is created. Supplementing L-Tyrosine bypasses one of the body's rate-limiting enzymes, and results in larger increases in dopamine production at a faster rate.
N-Acetyl L-Tyrosine (NALT) is a modified version of the amino acid. The N-terminal has been acetylated, which increases its solubility, and ability to pass membranes in the body. NALT is 20 times more water soluble than L-Tyrosine. Many people report improved mood and focus effects from NALT compared to L-Tyrosine. However, those effects have not been clinically proven yet.

It does what its suppose to do makes you feel better, be happy and stress reduces its best to be taken wifh food and drink. I put it in a small bowl type and put water with it and drink. In the morning as well within either 30 minutes before or after breakfast. TK on 11th Sep 2016
For some reason NALT works much better for me than L-tyrosine. I notice a much faster and stronger mood boost when using it. I like mixing some into my morning shakes for a nice boost. Steve on 13th Feb 2016
