Product Information

L-Tryptophan is an essential amino acid (meaning the body cannot produce it on its own). Dietary sources of L-Tryptophan include egg whites, cod, pumpkin seeds, cheese, turkey, pork, and milk.

L-Tryptophan is a protein building block that supports healthy moods, relaxation, and restful sleep. It also plays a key role in the body's synthesis of melatonin and serotonin—hormones involved in mood and stress response. In addition, as a precursor to the kynurenines that regulate the body's immune response, L-Tryptophan supports the body's immune functions. As required by the body, L-tryptophan also converts to niacin and thus supports a healthy nervous system and circulation, as well as the body’s metabolism.

L-tryptophan also aids in the production of hydrochloric acid used by digestive system for the effective breakdown of food. It may also reduce carbohydrate cravings and is supportive as an aid in maintaining a healthy weight.

    best price around! January 23, 2014
    Reviewer: Karen R. from Salt Lake City, UT United States  
    This has changed my life.  This amino acid, found in turkey, helps me get to sleep.  I take two every night about 45 minutes before bedtime.  As a therapist, I suggest it to my clients for insomnia.
