L-Tryptophan (500mg) Overview
Body First’s L-Tryptophan is a 100% pure, free form version of the amino acid L-Tryptophan. L-Tryptophan is a natural precursor to both melatonin and serotonin within the body. It can also be used to naturally produce Niacin within the body. Supplementing with L-Tryptophan has been shown to support a positive mood, regular sleep patterns, relaxation and natural feelings of well-being. *
After absorption, L-Tryptophan is able to convert to 5-HTP and eventually to serotonin. This process of conversion can further continue by serotonin converting into melatonin. When you supplement with L-Tryptophan, your body does a great job at releasing the correct amount of conversional enzymes to ensure the right amount of each hormone is produced. Serotonin is a monoamine neurotransmitter found in various places throughout the body and is an important contributor to producing feelings of happiness. Melatonin is a hormone that plays a role regulating circadian rhythm, influencing regular sleep patterns by promoting feelings of relaxation and drowsiness. Supplementing with L-Tryptophan at night has been shown to promote positive mood and improved sleep. *
