The essential amino acid L-tryptophan helps support relaxation, restful sleep, and positive mood. It plays a part in the synthesis of both melatonin and serotonin, hormones involved with mood and stress response and sleep/wake cycles. L-Tryptophan also supports immune functions because it is the body's precursor to the kynurenines that regulate immunity. If needed, L-tryptophan converts to niacin in the body, which supports circulation, a healthy nervous system, the metabolism of food, and the production of hydrochloric acid for the digestive system. Source Naturals L-Tryptophan is extremely pure and is regularly tested to ensure the highest standards of quality.
1 capsule three times daily, between meals and preferably with fruit juice. To support restful sleep, take 3 capsules before bed.

I was depressed for about 1 year and had not medical insurance. I went into my local health food store and asked for something. I have been taking L-Tryptophan 3 xs a day for 2 months now and I can think clearer and am not crying all the time. I can get up in the morning and look forward to a day and go to bed without crying myself to sleep. I recommend this to anyone who needs something for depression.
I have suffered from depression my whole life and have been put on several antidepressants and none of them worked for me and had horrible side effects. Since I have started taking L-Tryptophan I have not suffered one day of depression. Unlike before I started taking this product I suffered from severe depression, life wasn't worth living depression. I LOVE THIS PRODUCT!!!!!!

As a long time sufferer of insomnia, I can recommend this to help with getting to sleep. 3 capsules before bed and before too long I'm drowsy.
Used for occasional insomnia.

I have always had trouble with sleep - I now take 1 L-tryptophan together with 1 DL Phenylalanine in the evening and have a fantastic sleep. I don't sleep any longer, but sleep solid and wake up refreshed and clear headed; doesn't make me drowsy before or after I sleep, just put my head down and know I'm in for a good nights sleep. I have just re-ordered this product.

I bought this to help with sleep, but after using it for some time now it's effect is minimal at best.
