What is Scitec Nutrition Tryptophan
L-Tryptophan is an essential amino acid provided by mixed dietary protein intakes from different sources. L-Tryptophan can also be consumed in the form of supplements.
Why should you take Tryptophan
Essentially tryptophan is the precursor to serotonin, a neurotransmitter that has been called the “happiness hormone". In order for your body to manufacture serotonin, it needs a sufficient supply of the natural amino acid, tryptophan.
Why increase serotonin?
The serotonin level in your body and brain is significantly affecting your mood. This hormone plays an extremely important role in your overall well-being.
Once serotonin has been produced from tryptophan in the body, it can be converted into another important molecule — melatonin.
In fact, research has shown that increasing tryptophan in the blood directly increases both serotonin and melatonin.
What is Melatonin
Melatonin influences the sleep-wake cycle of the body. This cycle impacts many other functions, including the metabolism of nutrients and your immune system.
Several studies have shown that increasing tryptophan can improve sleep by increasing melatonin.
