L-Tryptophan 500 mg 90 Vegetarian caps by Life Extension

L-Tryptophan 500 mg 90 Vegetarian caps by Life Extension

Serotonin is a neurotransmitter in the brain associated with positive moods and restful sleep. To produce and maintain optimum serotonin levels, your body requires tryptophan, an essential amino acid the body canít produce.

In the body, tryptophan has been shown to:

  • improve sleep
  • enhance mood
  • modulate stress

The basis for this formula is premium L-tryptophan, which has undergone significantly more rigorous manufacturing processes than regular tryptophan material to assure the highest purity and safety.

Suggested Use: Take one (1) capsule 1 to 3 times daily on an empty stomach, or as recommended by a healthcare practitioner. For maximum absorption, take with a small amount of carbohydrate, such as diluted juice. Best if taken separately from protein and amino acids.
