N-methyl tyramine, also known as 4-hydroxy-N-methylphenethylamine, is a derivative of the amino acid tyrosine, occurring naturally in animal and plant foods, e.g. cheese, fish and chocolate. It may be vital in the process of fat burning and energy production. Because of that, it should interest many individuals doing sport.
According to some sources, adding N-methyl tyramine to a diet may stimulate the breakdown of fat which is important in sports supplementation. It affects probably lipolysis, which is the process of fat breakdown.
Studies show that this compound may increase cardiac output and that is why it boosts the transport of oxygen and nutrients. By releasing renin from the kidneys, it may have an indirect impact on the regulation of blood pressure. It probably promotes anabolic processes in skeletal muscles and therefore contributes to an increase in muscle mass.
