Alleviate stress and promote mood balance with L-Tryptophan Vegetarian Capsules from Life Extension®. This dietary supplement may relax your mind and help you sleep better at night.
L-Tryptophan is an essential amino acid found in plant and animal proteins. It is not produced by your body but must be acquired from food. L-Tryptophan‚ or tryptophan‚ may produce the neurotransmitter serotonin in your brain to promote mood balance‚ improve attention‚ and boost memory. Serotonin may also reduce pain‚ fight inflammation‚ and support certain body functions.
The tryptophan present in your brain is converted to serotonin that your body uses to make the hormone melatonin‚ which regulates your sleep cycle. Thus‚ tryptophan in this dietary supplement from Life Extension® plays an important role in regulating your mood‚ learning‚ memory‚ sleep‚ and appetite.
Include L-Tryptophan Vegetarian Capsules from Life Extension® in your everyday diet and it may support healthy transmission of brain signals between the nerve cells to reduce irritability‚ anxiety‚ disturbed sleep‚ and frequent mood swings.
