What is tryptophan?
It’s not just in turkey: L-tryptophan is an essential amino acid that promotes sleep, supports mood health, and encourages a healthy stress response.
Why did we add hops extract?
Hops compounds help protect DNA from damage, promote healthy cellular function and can even help relieve hot flashes associated with menopause.
Support Sleep, Stress & Weight Management
Most people only know of tryptophan from their Thanksgiving dinner. But this essential amino acid does more than simply make you sleepy after you’ve had a big meal. Our Optimized Tryptophan Plus provides 1,000 mg of L-tryptophan per serving to support healthy sleep, help modulate our biological response to stress and even promote satiety to help support healthy weight management.
Optimized Tryptophan Plus is made with high-quality L-tryptophan, as well as nutrients such as lysine, niacinamide and more to help maintain healthy tryptophan activity in the body.
More facts about Optimized Tryptophan Plus
Serotonin is a neurotransmitter in the brain associated with positive mood and restful sleep. Your body requires the essential amino acid tryptophan to produce and maintain healthy serotonin levels. But your body cannot make tryptophan on its own.
Sleep, stress response, and satiety
Studies indicate that tryptophan promotes healthy sleep patterns and mood. It also encourages the body’s healthy response to stress. And tryptophan and serotonin can help support satiety, the feeling of being “full.”
L-tryptophan augmented with unique nutrients
Optimized Tryptophan Plus provides 1,000 mg of L-tryptophan per serving. Our L-tryptophan has undergone a rigorous manufacturing process to ensure quality and purity.
