L-Tryptophan 500 mg 60 vegcaps
L-tryptophan is an essential amino acid; therefore, it is not synthesized by the body and must be obtained from the diet. In the brain, tryptophan is converted into serotonin, a neurotransmitter involved in feelings of well-being, calmness, personal security, and relaxation.* It also plays a role in the regulation of appetite and synchronization of sleep patterns.* Every lot of Protocol For Life Balance® L-tryptophan is tested to be free of Peak E and microbial contamination.
Caution/Interactions: Tryptophan supplements may interact with CNS depressants, antidepressants (SSRIs,MAOIs), and other serotonergic agents such as St. John's Wort and 5-HTP. Consult your healthcare practitioner if you are taking medications or herbs, are pregnant/nursing, or if you have a liver impairment. May cause drowsiness. Do not use with alcoholic beverages or while operating heavy machinery.
