Are you having trouble falling or staying asleep? Sleep is when your body repairs itself‚ and when your muscles rest and recover. If you aren't able to relax enough in order to go to bed‚ your brain's production--or lack thereof--of serotonin may be to blame.
As a neurotransmitter that helps regulate sleep/wake cycles‚ serotonin levels normally fall during the day (when you are exposed to light) and rise at night (when it's usually dark). In some cases‚ you can get a boost by providing your brain with support from l-tryptophan.
L-Tryptophan by Pure Encapsulations provides an essential amino acid‚ which is commonly found in turkey. Since tryptophan is a precursor to serotonin‚ it spurs the brain' increased production and synthesis of the latter‚ which can promote quicker onset of sleep (less tossing and turning) and higher sleep quality. Getting higher-quality sleep is just as important as the quantity of rest‚ since restorative sleep only occurs at certain stages.
While a good night's rest can certainly decrease irritability‚ l-tryptophan may also promote a positive mood in other ways. It may help the brain better process emotions‚ especially during menstrual periods in women. It may also help manage occasional food cravings.
Every capsule of L-Tryptophan provides 500 milligrams of TryptoPure l-tryptophan. In addition‚ this supplement also contains activated vitamin B6 and niacinamide to further support the absorption and metabolism of tryptophan.
Take two to six vegetable capsules daily‚ in divided doses between meals. At the recommended dosage‚ each 180-capsule bottle of Pure Encapsulations' L-Tryptophan should last from one to three months.

By Karen Hoye
I have been using L-Tryptophan as a sleep aid for over a year now and it really does help. L-Tryptophan was recommended by my family physician. I use it along with a Melatonin sublingual spray. A much healthier choice than prescription drugs prescribed for insomnia. Your price is great and having it available in a larger amount is very convenient and helps keep the price down. I appreciate the free shipping too. Thanks.
