WHAT IS TRYPTOPHAN?
Tryptophan‚ an essential amino acid‚ is the precursor to Serotonin‚ which is a necessary neurotransmitter responsible for transmitting nerve impulses in the brain‚ and inducing sleep and tranquility. Serotonin deficiencies‚ which are related to Tryptophan deficiencies‚ are well documented in cases of depression and insomnia‚ as well as chemical addictions. Low levels of Tryptophan have also been noted with PMS‚ substance abuse‚ schizophrenia‚ attention deficit disorders and autism. The dietary sources of Tryptophan are cottage cheese‚ milk‚ brown rice‚ peanuts‚ meat‚ turkey and soy products. Tryptophan supplementation is an excellent way for increasing Serotonin levels. It is essential for biochemical balance of the brain‚ and is very helpful for those with sleep deprivation and anxiety and provides mood enhancement. Tryptophan supplementation has also been effective in appetite control‚ increasing pain tolerance and assisting those with jet lag. Montiff supplies only the highest quality USP Tryptophan in Trypto-Plus‚ which is now available for professional use.
TRYPTO-PLUS AND SLEEP
Sleep deprivation is a serious concern for many‚ and low Serotonin levels are often the cause of this problem. Tryptophan (with the necessary co-factors) converts to Serotonin helping to induce relaxation and naturally enhancing sleep. One –Two capsules 30 minutes prior to bedtime are recommended‚ and it may also be taken during the night if necessary. In extreme cases of insomnia‚ Trypto-Plus may be taken early evening‚ as well as bedtime. Take with fruit juice or water. Do not eat protein two hours before bedtime.
TYPTO-PLUS AND MOOD ENHANCEMENT
Tryptophan (plus co-factors) naturally converts to Serotonin and it has been well documented that low Serotonin levels and low Tryptophan levels have been associated with depression. If depression also involves Catecholamine biochemistry‚ then taking Trypto-Plus in a regimen along with Montiff NeuroBalance is recommended. (Neuro-Balance should be taken prior to breakfast & mid morning).
