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 converts to serotonin‚ the neuto-transmitter that is responsible for feelings of well-being‚ calmness‚ personal security‚ relaxation‚ and confidence.* Serotonin is also involved in maintenance of a healthy appetite.* Some serotonin is converted in the pineal gland to melatonin‚ which helps to regulate sleep patterns.* Protocol For Life Balance™ L-Tryptophan is pharmaceutically pure - every lot is tested to be free of Peak E and microbial contamination.
