250 mg GPH L-TRYPTOPHAN capsules

L-tryptophan belongs together with L-phenylalanine and L-tyrosine to the group of aromatic amino acids and is essential. Within the essential amino acids, L-tryptophan is the amino acid that is found in the least amount in ordinary food. Ham, beef steaks, eggs, Parmesan cheese, almonds and game contain larger amounts. Vegetable food tends to be low in L-tryptophan. This amino acid also has a direct influence on the formation of the messenger substance serotonin and niacin (vitamin B3).

Serotonin is responsible for inner peace, balance and happiness. This hormone is therefore a stress regulator. A lack of L-tryptophan can lead to the development of depression and mental disorders. In addition, L-tryptophan is the key substance for the production of melatonin, which has a calming effect on brain activity and can make it easier to fall asleep and relax.

Other amino acids compete with L-tryptophan for transport across the blood-brain barrier. It is therefore advisable to take L-tryptophan in isolation from other proteins.

Adults: Take 1 capsule twice a day with liquid.
