Supplement Overview

90 Vegetarian Capsules
Click to View Supplement Facts

There have been many controlled studies on tryptophan. They suggest increased sleepiness, decreased sleep latency, and increased synthesis of serotonin and melatonin. L-Tryptophan contains the highest quality ingredients for maximum purity and safety.

Serotonin is a neurotransmitter made in the brain from tryptophan. Serotonin has been associated with positive moods and restful sleep.1-4

To produce and maintain optimum serotonin levels, your body requires tryptophan, an essential amino acid, which means that your body cannot produce it.1 In the body, tryptophan has been shown to:

  • Improve sleep3,4
  • Enhance mood1,2,4
  • Modulate stress5

Life Extension® L-Tryptophan Capsules contains premium L-tryptophan which has undergone significantly more rigorous manufacturing processes than regular tryptophan material, to assure the highest purity and safety.
