Active Ingredients: L-Tryptophan (Amino Acid)
Suggested Use: Take 2 or more capsules 30 minutes before bedtime. If necessary, Pure L-Tryptophan can be taken during the night. Or use as directed by your healthcare professional.
Maintaining healthy sleep cycles is a serious challenge for many, and healthy serotonin production can be a significant key. Tryptophan converts to serotonin helping to encourage relaxation and naturally supporting healthy sleep cycles. Two capsules 30 minutes prior to bedtime are recommended. If necessary, L-Tryptophan can be taken during the night. For additional support, tryptophan may be taken in early evening and again at bedtime. Vitamin B-6, along with increasing dietary complex carbohydrates, are other important steps for promoting proper metabolism and increasing effectiveness.*
It has been well documented that healthy serotonin levels and healthy tryptophan levels are associated with stable mood. Tryptophan naturally converts to seratonin, a neurotransmitter. If your health care provider recommends taking tryptophan in a regimen along with tyrosine, it is recommended that tryptophan be taken prior to dinner and again prior to bedtime. Tyrosine should be taken prior to breakfast and mid morning as well. This is because the two supplements compete for uptake in the brain and because tryptophan promotes relaxation and healthy sleep.*
Some studies suggest that tryptophan helps support a balanced appetite, for those who are following a healthy weight management and exercise program.*
Supplementing with L-tryptophan is recommended for those who travel and experience jet lag. It is most effective when taken in conjunction with L-tyrosine to enhance catecholamine as well as serotonin production.*
