Tryptophan (Recommended International Customers)
L-Tryptophan, 500 mg
Known as the “Inner sunshine” nutrient, L-Tryptophan is the amino acid that our brains use to make our natural anti-depressants. It is frequently deficient in our diets. Julia Ross states in The Mood Cure that our generation is experiencing an epidemic of Tryptophan deficiency. It is the key to the production of 5-htp and the neurotransmitters serotonin and melatonin (helpful for promoting sound sleep). Tryptophan also is well known for its anti-anxiety effects and can help with obsessive thoughts, irritability, and seasonal affective disorder. Better than similar 5-htp for children and insomnia-sufferers.
