Tryptophan is an essential amino acid and a precursor of serotonin, a neurotransmitter that is associated with positive mood, relaxation and restful sleep. Adequate supplies of tryptophan are required to ensure optimum serotonin levels, and this can be achieved with tryptophan capsules.
A number of studies have shown tryptophan capsules to enhance mood naturally, alleviate depressive symptoms, improve sleep and provide natural stress relief. Consuming purified tryptophan increases brain serotonin whereas eating tryptophan foods (foods that contain tryptophan) does not. Life Extension´s Optimized Tryptophan Plus provide broad and powerful support for tryptophan levels already within the normal range.
The formula is based on premium L-tryptophan, which has undergone close monitoring and more rigorous manufacturing processes than ordinary tryptophan material to ensure highest purity and safety. Optimised Tryptophan Plus contains an optimum dose of tryptophan supplements along with a balanced supply of other nutrients including lysine, niacinamide, and extracts of hops and rosemary, which have been found to support the body´s production of serotonin, making it a useful depression treatment and sleep aid.
For maximum absorption the tryptophan capsules should be taken with a small amount of carbohydrate, such as diluted fruit juice. The capsules are best taken separately from protein or amino acids.
Serotonin syndrome is characterised by high serotonin levels with symptoms such as confusion, sweating, agitation, nausea, involuntary muscle contractions, and a racing heartbeat. If you experience these symptoms, do not continue to take L-tryptophan.
Tryptophan drug interactions are high (most commonly the MAOI and SSRI antidepressants), and so you should consult your doctor before embarking on taking tryptophan if you are taking prescription medication. Do not use L-tryptophan before driving or operating heavy machinery.
