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.

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.
Have used The Vitamin Shoppe's L-Tryptophan caps and had great sleep. Was buying a bunch of stuff on iherb so thought I'd try the Source Naturals caps because it was cheap - big mistake. Last night had a horrible groggy insomnia and depressed feeling. Will not touch this product again.
Tried many things

L-Trytophan works for me and Ive tried many things. I do a little combo with melatonin and I actually sleep. Source naturals is a great brand too.

I haven't slept properly and have suffered from Restless Leg Syndrome since my first daughter was born over ten years ago. I was literally at my wits end when I stumbled across some research on the internet in regards to Trytophan and Melatonin being helpful for sleep and I thought, what have I got to lose?! Honestly within a week I noticed a significant difference, I was sleeping ALL NIGHT! I cannot recommend these products enough, they have given me my life back!!

I have been using L-Tryptophan for quite a few months now and it not only has been the only thing that can help me sleep. But l never wake up feeling drowsy. There have been no side effects and l am left with a feeling of well being. I will continue to use the product. It is so much better than taking valium and sleeping tablets.
