L-tryptophan is an essential amino acid and hence cannot be synthesized by the body, but must be obtained from food or supplements. Because L-tryptophan is converted to serotonin (5-hydroxytryptamine) and melatonin in the body, it plays an important role in promoting relaxation, restful sleep and positive mood.*
L-tryptophan may also help in reducing carbohydrate cravings.* Jarrow Formulas® L-Tryptophan TryptoPure® is manufactured at a GMP facility via fermentation of vegetable materials.
Take 1 capsule on an empty stomach 30 minutes before sleep with water or fruit juice or as directed by your qualified healthcare professional.
