Best L-Tryptophan, manufactured by Doctor's Best, contains Ajinomoto Tryptopure, which is considered the purest form of L-Tryptophan. It is made through fermentation from vegetable sources and is claimed to be between 99% and 100% pure. What is Tryptophan? It is an essential amino acid that is a precursor to the neurotransmitter Serotonin, which plays a large role in regulation of sleep, mood, appetite, and temperature, among other things. The main function of L-tryptophan is the promotion of sleep. Not only may it decrease the time it takes to fall asleep, but it can also reduce intermittent waking and prolong total sleep time. This supplement is also used to curb cravings for carbohydrates and may also boost mood. All ingredients are encapsulated in a vegetarian capsule and therefore suitable for vegetarians. Veggie capsules are also free from egg, milk, wheat, starch, salt, sugar, sweetener, and preservatives. The L-Tryptophan contained in this brand is tested according to the United States Pharmcopeia (USP) Standards.
