Lift your mood and get great sleep naturally

happy-couple3Millions suffer from depression and feelings of sadness along with difficulty falling asleep.  Incorporating a simple, natural amino acid like L-tryptophan may be just the ticket to an elevated mood and peaceful sleep!

Tryptophan is an essential amino acid which promotes seratonin and, in turn, melatonin balance.  A common myth is that tryptophan is what causes sleepiness after eating turkey on Thanksgiving.  The actual cause of fatigue is the body’s demand for increased blood flow to the digestive system to handle all the excess calories.  Eating any type of large meal can cause sleepiness.

Tryptophan triggers seratonin and melatonin production.  Seratonin is the “feel good” hormone which enhances mood and produces feelings of happiness.  Melatonin regulates sleep cycles which are often out of order in many people’s hectic lives.  Proper amounts of melatonin encourages natural sleep patterns.

Between 1982 and 2005 the FDA banned all forms of tryptophan due to contamination concerns.  The only exception was a trademarked form of l-tryptophan known as Tryptopure®. Tryptopure is 99-100% pure and safe.

A study done in 2002 by the College of Medicine in South Korea found that seratonin and melatonin also reduce oxidative stress in the brain.

Unlike many over-the-counter and prescription mood enhancers and sleep aides, l-tryptophan can be used long term quite safely and produces no negative side effects.

Isotonix® L-Tryptophan is made from Tryptopure® and synergistically combines vitamin C, B-3 and B-6 improving the metabolism of this amino acid.  Genuine isotonic formulas are extremely bio-available and 95% absorbed unlike capsules, tablets and liquid supplements.
