L-Tryptophan 90 vcaps by Klaire Labs
L-Tryptophan by Klaire Labs is an essential amino acid that helps improve mood, supports calmness, and improves sleep quality.
L-tryptophan serves as the precursor to the feel-good neurotransmitter serotonin and the sleep hormone melatonin. Because it's essential, it must be obtained from the diet. It's found in many different foods including meats, dairy, fruits, and seeds.
Stress due to a busy lifestyle, poor diet, or anxiety and depression can interfere with our sleep. Poor sleep in turn affects how we eat as well as our mood and anxiety levels.
In clinical trials, supplementation with L-tryptophan has been shown to reduce symptoms of depression and anxiety, improve insomnia, and boost mood.
L-tryptophan should be taken on an empty stomach away from meals containing protein as it will compete with other amino acids for absorption. Taking L-tryptophan with a small amount of carbohydrates may help it reach the brain easier as insulin helps remove other amino acids from the bloodstream.
L-tryptophan should not be taken if you are on SSRIs. This may lead to harmful levels of serotonin in the brain and may interfere with the medication's effects. Other medications may react negatively with L-tryptophan as well.
It should also be avoided by individuals with liver and kidney disease as it may make these conditions worse. Make sure to speak with your doctor before supplementing with L-tryptophan.
