Ingredient Spotlight: L-Tyrosine, Creativity Booster
This Science Saturday spotlights one of the actives in Mental Mojo’s proprietary cognition complex: L-Tyrosine. A study authored by the Leiden Institute for Brain and Cognition in September of 2014 reports that L-Tyrosine promotes convergent creative thinking–the type of deep thinking drawn from long periods of concentration (as opposed to divergent thinking, most commonly utilized during “brainstorming”). Researchers hypothesize that L-Tyrosine catalyzes creative thinking by boosting levels of dopamine, the neurotransmitter that is believed to drive creativity and many other aspects of cognition. So grab some Mojo, shake and cogitate–creatively.
