Phenylalanine vs. L-Tyrosine

For amphetamine recovery, and specifically in the realm of ADHD psychostimulant withdrawal, there are two specific amino acids which can help to speed up and likely eliminate your symptoms of withdrawal. These two amino acids are the precursors  to the neurotransmitter dopamine (as well as norepinephrine to a lesser extent) in the brain, which will help your brain create it much faster during your withdrawal, will help restore your tolerance to ADHD medication if that’s what you’re looking for (the medication will work significantly better after a period of sobriety AND tyrosine), and finally, your clarity of thought and general zest for life will be improved-and back to

normal! But which of these two supplements is stronger, why do they help restore your neurotransmitters, and what is the sequence to which a dopamine receptors is made?

Phenylalanine is the precursor to L-Tyrosine and is therefore the weaker of the two, however, if both are used at the same time and in appropriate dosages, this supplement will still do wonders for an amphetamine withdrawn brain. Stacking the two in conjunction will prove similarly powerful results as high doses of just one by itself. If you want to save money and speed up your withdrawal, I recommend the vegetarian tablets of 500mg L-Tyrosine each from GNC, your withdrawal will largely be alleviated and in a few weeks you’ll feel like your old self again.

The Sequence

The reason these work (precursors) is due to the direct chain of amino acids that creates the dopamine neurotransmitter in the brain (which is synonymous with the creation of norepinephrine receptors). The cycle is Phenylalanine-L-Tyrosine-L-Dopa-Dopamine, or for more specific measures Phenylalanine-L-Tyrosine-L-Dopa-Dopamine-Norepinephrine, depending one which receptors are most downregulated and of which needs to take precedence before your body can maintain homeostasis, (this is why amphetamine addicts normally have a period of PAWS, in which their brain feels horrid and they go through stages of depression, yet in the beginning their body is what regains energy first, the norepinephrine takes precedence.)

The major reason why these two supplements work is because

They are used in the creation of dopamine-so the more of these there are, the more dopamine is available to be restored and created. I am writing this now because I’ve realized that a lot of traffic on this blog comes from people looking for Adderall alternatives, you can use these supplements in conjunction with things like tapering off, Adrafanil, L-Theanine and piracetam to speed up your recovery and detox to an even further extent.

High dosages for restoring your receptors quickly and painlessly

The best way to restore your receptors is to take 10 pills of L-Tyrosine for 30 days (10, 500 milligram pills, three with each meal), and to then only take them as you feel you need them.

Final Thoughts

The best nootropics or any sort of stimulant recovery, whether amphetamines or caffeine, is absolutely L-Tyrosine, piracetam, and L-Theanine (in that order), one will restore your receptors, the other will allow you to use your brains natural energy again, and the final one to get adequate sleep to ensure success in your body and mind’s healing process.
