Description
L-Tryptophan provided by Douglas Laboratories supplies 1000 mg of pure L-Tryptophan plus other synergistic cofactors in two vegetarian capsules.

Functions
Serotonin, an important brain neurotransmitter, is key in the regulation of appetite, mood and melatonin production.The presence of seratonin in the brain is associated with balanced emotional state. This is achieved in part by decreasing the activity of certain excitatory hormones, including dopamine and noradrenaline. Seratonin also acts as a satiety signal in the brain, thereby naturally regulating food intake. Additionally, as a precursor of melatonin, seratonin is involved in regulating sleep patterns.

Seratonin is unable to cross the blood-brain barrier and is therefore synthesized in the brain. Tryptophan, and essential amino acid, is a precursor for the synthesis of seratonin. Tryptophan crosses the blood-brain barrier and is converted to L-5-Hydroxytryptophan (5-HTP), which in turn is converted to seratonin. Vitamins B2 and B6, niacinamide and Vitamin C are necessary cofactors to ensure proper synthesis of seratonin.

Studies indicate that supplementation with L-Tryptophan may support health mood and restful sleep. Other studies indicate L-Tryptophan may support women's emotional being before menustration. Additional research indicates L-Tryptophan may be helpful in supporting healthy relaxation and occasional food cravings.

Indications
Tryptophan may be a useful dietary supplement for individuals wishing to support nuerological function and health emotional well being.
