L-tryptophan is one of the 22 protein amino acids and one of the 8 essential amino acids of the human diet. However, it is not synthesized by the body and must be taken either through the consumption of foods or through the intake of dietary supplements.

L-tryptophan plays many and important roles in the mental functioning of the organism, as it possesses the ability to penetrate the blood-brain barrier. It is known for its role in the production of chemical messengers of the nervous system, especially those associated with relaxation, calm and sleep. It is an important neurotransmitter / hormone that is found naturally in all organs of the body.

Deficiency of L-tryptophan, especially during the period of stress, dramatically reduces serotonin levels. In addition, low levels of L-tryptophan lead to depression, anxiety, insecurity, hyperactivity and insomnia.

L-tryptophan is a precursor to the production of serotonin, melatonin and niacin (B3), which help to obtain good mood, calm sleep and proper immune function.

Note: each batch of L-tryptophan from NOW Foods is checked for Peak E or microbial contamination.
