OUR STORY: Leaders of the Wellness Revolution
Our story began in 1982 with CEO Ira Goldberg’s vision for revolutionizing the way we think and act about our health. The Western healthcare model was focused almost entirely on treating (rather than preventing) disease. And the concept of supporting and nurturing the body as a system designed for wellness wasn’t widely known.
More than 30 years ago, we set out to help people understand how their body systems work in harmony to achieve healthy balance. Your well-being is our highest priority. We invite you to join our wellness community today.
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.*
Suggested Use: 1 capsule three times daily, between meals and preferably with fruit juice. To support restful sleep, take 3 capsules before bed.
L-tryptophan is an essential amino acid; it is not synthesized by the body, so you must obtain it through diet or supplements. Eat a diet that includes plenty of complex carbohydrates, raw fruits and vegetables, soybeans and soy products, whole grains, seeds, nuts, brown rice, millet, and legumes. It is recommended to avoid alcohol, caffeine, and processed foods and to get plenty of exercise. Supplementing a healthy diet with Source Naturals L-TRYPTOPHAN is excellent means of ensuring that you have the required amount of this important amino acid, for a healthy body, for restful sleep, and…to just feel good.

Anyway, I also started using a sleep tracking app that monitors sleep patterns / movement and shows you the time periods of light sleep, deep sleep and REM cycles. Ive used it enough now to know it is legit and is creating completely unique charts every night which coincide with how well I felt I slept. I think the screenshot of last night says it all. I was clearly tossing and turning and in light sleep until about 3am...shortly after taking the capsules and suddenly I was in complete deep sleep for the remainder of the night. I've never had a graph like this since I started using the app, and generally the deep sleep period have only been about an hour and spread out through the night.
If that isnt some solid evidence to show you the effectiveness...I dont know what is.
**Some general info about what led me to taking L-tryptophan: I suffer occasional insomnia (restless sleeping) and generally wake up constantly throughout the night. A friend suggested to me that I start taking GABA along with taurine to help. In researching GABA, I came upon a sleep hacking blog where all the different methods are broken down. You can read through it all, if you like, but the mains points were it discussed 5-HTP (something I used to take) and how L-tryptophan had the same benefits but is much stronger and safer....and yet it was pulled off the market for a long time. I decided to give it a go and I am a believer. There is also a note about it not being too healthy to be a regular part of diet..so at least for me, I plan to only take when I really really need it.
