-Encourages Positive Mood*
-Supports Relaxation & Restful Sleep*
How it Works:
L-Tryptophan is an essential amino acid; therefore, it is not synthesized by the body and must be obtained from the diet. In the brain, Tryptophan is converted into serotonin, a neurotransmitter involved in feelings of well-being, calmness, personal security, and relaxation.* It also plays a role in the regulation of appetite and synchronization of sleep patterns.* Every lot of Protocol For Life Balance® L-Tryptophan is tested to be free of Peak E and microbial contamination.
Take 1-2 capsules twice daily on an empty stomach, with final dose at bedtime, or as directed by your healthcare practitioner.
Cautions / Interactions:
Tryptophan supplements may interact with CNS depressants, antidepressants (SSRIs, MAOIs), and other serotonergic agents such as St. John’s Wort and 5-HTP. Consult your healthcare practitioner if you are taking medications or herbs, are pregnant/nursing, or if you have liver impairment. May cause drowsiness.
