Amino Acids

    I just realised that the iodine supplement that I take includes the following amino acids:

    Tyrosine 500mg
    Cystine hydrochloride 25 mg
    Methione 25 mg
    Taurine 25mg

    In addition, I also take a separate L-Tyrosine supplement 500 mg.

    Is this ok? I know to avoid glutathione but am I correct in assuming that these other amino acids should be fine???

    Hi, Topaz. I take Tyrosine also.

    For a long time, I took 1000 MG. I tolerated it fine, but then I developed a heart flutter.

    My nutritionist told me that excess Tyrosine can cause flutter in some patients and advised me to cut back to 500 MG.

    I did, and the flutter went away.

    My system is absurdly sensitive, so my experience may be uncommon, but I thought I'd mention it.
