L-Tryptophan is an essentail amino acid that helps boost serotonin levels


L-Tryptophan Helps to Regulate Behaviour


In order for your body to manufacture serotonin, it needs a sufficient supply of the natural amino acid, tryptophan. Much of what is now known about the role of serotonin in psychiatric and behavioral disturbances comes from studies of tryptophan depletion.


People with naturally impulsive or aggressive personalities may receive the most benefit from supplementing with tryptophan, based on studies of deliberate tryptophan depletion in such patients. With the close connection between tryptophan and the neurotransmitter serotonin, it shouldn’t be surprising that supplementing with tryptophan can regulate behaviors that involve serotonin signaling in the brain


L-Tryptophan and Improved Sleep Quality


The two main biomolecules that are involved in the production of normal sleep—the neurotransmitter serotonin and the hormone melatonin—are both naturally made from tryptophan in the body. That makes tryptophan a tremendously valuable supplement for those whose sleep is lacking in either quantity or quality.

Those who take tryptophan at bedtime are more likely to wake up with increased alertness, to have clearer thinking, and to perform better on attention-requiring tasks. Unlike sleeping pill drugs, tryptophan induces sleepiness but does not impair performance or produce dependence, nor does it make it harder to be roused from sleep when necessary.


Tryptophan Reduces Anxiety and Stress

The natural protective response to stress and anxiety involve the serotonin signaling system, as well as hormone pathways in the brain, pituitary, and adrenal glands.

The connection between tryptophan and serotonin explains why tryptophan supplementation has been found to help reduce anxiety and alleviate stress. Tryptophan supplementation reduces biochemical markers of stress, particularly the hormone cortisol that has many deleterious effects in the human body.


Recommended Use (For adults):  Take 2-4 capsules 2-3 times daily on an empty stomach, with the final dose taken before bed.
