Product Description

Package Quantity: 1 | Size: 120 Capsules

Dietary supplement. Mood, relaxation, sleep. The essential amino acid L-Tryptophan helps support relaxation, restful sleep, and feeling better. It plays a part in the synthesis of both melatonin and serotonin, hormones involved with mood and stress response. L-Tryptophan also supports immune functions because it is the body's precursor to the kynurenines that regulate immunity. If needed, L-Tryptophan converts to niacin in the body, which supports circulation, a healthy nervous system, the metabolism of food, and the production of hydrochloric acid for the digestive system. Source Naturals L-Tryptophan is extremely pure and is regularly tested to ensure the highest standards of quality. (These statements have not been evaluated by the Food and Drug Administration. This product is not intended to diagnose, treat, cure or prevent any disease.) Hypoallergenic: Contains no yeast, dairy, egg, starch, salt, preservatives, or artificial color, flavor or fragrance.

Source Naturals L-Tryptophan has performed miracles for me. It's an amino acid that helps build the brain's feel-good chemical, serotonin. I've used it for about 2 years after reading The Mood Cure: The 4-Step Program to Take Charge of Your Emotions--Today for its nutritional advice, upon the recommendation of this book: Protein Power: The High-Protein/Low-Carbohydrate Way to Lose Weight, Feel Fit, and Boost Your Health--in Just Weeks!.

I was shocked by the difference it made for me in the quality and quantity of my sleep. I'd spent the last year or two waking up, wide awake, at 3:30 in the morning & was unable to go back to sleep. I take 1500 mg of Tryptophan (3 500 mg capsules) and 400 mg of chelated magnesium before bed and now enjoy deep and restful sleep. [I've recently added in another supplement, melatonin; you can read more about that at the end of this review].

I find that I am more resilient, resistant to stress, & easygoing since taking tryptophan.

I experienced its incredible mood-boosting effect earlier this year after enduring a ruptured appendix. I suffered several complications & had to be put on super strong antibiotics that depleted all my B Vitamins and sent me into a quick but INTENSE bout of post-surgical depression (much like what heart bypass surgery patients experience, according to my surgeon). I spoke with my physician to get his approval, then took just 500 mg of tryptophan that afternoon and then 1500 at bedtime, as usual, and bounced back to my usual cheerful self within JUST 2 DAYS.

Like many other of the reviews, I too was very skeptical that these capsules would provide much relief to my sleepless nights, which I had been experiencing for over a year. Taking three of these capsules before bed every night seemed to almost work from the first dose. Wow, what a difference L-Tryptophan makes! Ever since taking this, I now sleep through the night and no longer find myself waking up at 3am with my mind racing full of thoughts and anxiety. I am firm believer that these capsules really work. I am getting ready to place my second order right now!

Man- I have got to say, HANDS DOWN, this is the ONLY natural "medicinal" remedy that has ever worked for me. 1-pill for anxiety & 3-pills to sleep. I never built a tolerance either. FIVE STARS!

Size Name: 120 CapsulesItem Package Quantity: 1 Verified Purchase
I rated the product as a 5 because it works. Period. I've had insomnia for years & been on many sleeping pills; most of which leave me in a stupor the next day or cause blackout periods where I have no memory of what I did after taking them. Besides, they lose their effectiveness. The Tryptophan (I take 3 caps immediately before laying down) helps me fall asleep. When I awake I feel refreshed, not hung over. I'm getting on average 6 hours of quality sleep.
Additionally, Tryptophan helps the brain produce serotonin, a neurotransmitter which acts as an anti-depressant. I've literally been able to wean myself off the antidepressant Trazadone (which I took for insomnia) by replacing it with the Tryptophan.
Other health benefits of Tryptophan include: controlling hyperactivity, alleviating stress, it aids the heart, is helpful in weight management by reducing appetite & also enhances the release of growth hormone. It is good for combating migraine headaches & may help reduce some of the effects of nicotine. A study reported in the Archives of General Psychiatry found that people with a history of Bulimia Nervosa (an Eating Disorder) experienced relapses after they took an amino acid mixture lacking Tryptophan. Additionally, a lack of both Tryptophan and the mineral magnesium may contribute to coronary artery spasms.
In 1998, the FDA banned the sale of Tryptophan after 38 deaths were reportedly linked to L-Tryptophan use in New Mexico. Subsequent research showed that it was contaminants in the Tryptophan, NOT the Tryptophan itself.
I would recommend this product to anyone looking for natural alternatives to treat either depression or insomnia.

I like the product, it's easy to take and very effective. Since tryptophan is an essential building block of serotonin and not a serotonin supplement it allows a natural and seamless delivery. Interestingly it also goes well with the bodies natural schedule, meaning, during the day it gives you a boost and in the evening it helps you wind down and have a peaceful sleep. In short it's a great product that I would recommend, take as directed and you'll get a positive outcome. On a side note, I actually bought this product to help me manage OCD which can be caused in part by a lack of serotonin in the brain. Serotonin is an essential neurotransmitter without it the brain can get "stuck" in certain states thus creating compulsive and hyperactive behavior. Lack of serotonin is also associated with depression in it's various forms, also a struggle for me. So finding a natural aid has been a blessing.

This is the only product that has ever worked on my insomnia and anxiety. I have tried just about everything else (Melatonin, 5HTP, Valarian, various B vitamins).

Also, no need for anti-depressent anymore!

Try it, it works!

2 pills @ night= 8 restfull sleep and very little anxiety thru out the day!
