L-Tryptophan
500 mg 90 vegetarian capsules
Item Catalog Number:
01722

Serotonin is a neurotransmitter in the brain associated with positive moods and restful sleep.39-42 To produce and maintain optimum serotonin levels, your body requires tryptophan, an essential amino acid the body can’t produce.39

In the body, tryptophan has been shown to:

  • improve sleep41,42
  • enhance mood39,40,42
  • modulate stress43

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.

Comments about Life Extension L-Tryptophan, 500 mg 90 vegetarian capsules:

L-Tryptophan is nothing new; I have been familiar with it ever since a holistic doctor prescribed it for my brother who was suffering from a nervous condition (almost 40 years ago).

This is not a sedative or tranquilizer but a 'tranquil'-izer as I like to call it, because of the tranquil feeling that you get from taking tryptophan. It works great for calming the mind in order for a good night's sleep.

L-Tryptophan will not 'knock you out' like a drug. It will simply enable or assist a natural brain function that promotes a noticeable calming effect. It's safe and effective.
