L-Tryptophan is an essential amino acid that may promote stress relief and healthy sleep in several ways. Being unable to get a good night's sleep may increase your stress level‚ which may ironically lead to you staying up at night worrying. L-Tryptophan by Pure Encapsulations is a convenient source of this amino acid‚ so you don't have to worry about having a perfectly balanced diet every day‚ either. Every capsule provides 500 milligrams of Tryptopure™ l-tryptophan.
Since l-tryptophan is a precursor to serotonin‚ it can spur your body's production of that neurotransmitter. Serotonin promotes relaxation‚ which may help you fall asleep more quickly and stay asleep longer. You may also experience less tossing and turning due to the fact that l-tryptophan can contribute to higher-quality sleep; effective‚ restorative sleep allows your muscles and other parts of the body to repair themselves so you can feel your best all day. Since serotonin production may naturally decline as you get older‚ L-Tryptophan supplements may relieve fatigue that is associated with the aging process.
Furthermore‚ l-tryptophan may help you relax and promote healthy emotional processing. Women may experience especially substantial benefits‚ particularly during that time of the month: you may be more likely to have a positive mood‚ largely due to decreased irritability during the menstrual cycle. Finally‚ tryptophan may work to lessen occasional food cravings. These L-Tryptophan capsules also contain vitamin B6 and niacin‚ which are cofactors that may support the absorption of the main ingredient.
Take two to six capsules per day‚ in divided doses between meals. At the recommended dosage‚ each 90-capsule bottle of Pure Encapsulations' L-Tryptophan Vegetable Capsules should last from 15 to 45 days.

Overall Rating for L-Tryptophan - 90 Capsules

no-fillers ~ thank you Pure Encapsulatio
Pure encapsulations is an expensive brand. Yet it is one of the only companies that makes supplements with no fillers. There are a few other companies but generally they sell herbs rather than amino acids etc. Thanks PureFormulas for carrying L-Tryptophan and to Pure Encapsulations for making it possible for sensitive individuals to purchase products that have no fillers.
price is too high
