L-Tryptophan 500mg, 120 vegetarian capsules
- Supports Relaxation*
- Encourages Positive Mood*

How it Works:
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 converts to serotonin, the neuro-transmitter that is responsible for feelings of well-being, calmness, personal security, relaxation, and confidence.* Some serotonin is converted in the pineal gland to melatonin, which helps to regulate sleep patterns.* Every lot of Protocol For Life Balance ® L-Tryptophan is tested to be free of Peak E and microbial contamination.
As a dietary supplement, take 1-2 capsules 2 to 3 times daily on an empty stomach or as directed by your healthcare professional. Best used at bedtime.
