What Is L-Tryptophan?
L-Tryptophan is an essential amino acid. It is necessary for human life as our bodies do not synthesize this amino acid and must be taken in by our diet. Many amino acids are building blocks for protein biosynthesis, and L-Tryptophan, in particular, is a precursor to Serotonin and Melatonin, neurotransmitters that regulate mood, sleep, and appetite. Though L-Tryptophan is commonly obtained through foods such as chicken, eggs, fish, cheese, and turkey, Harvest Naturals L-Tryptophan is made synthetically from plant-based materials and is NON-GMO and Vegan safe.

How Does L-Tryptophan Work?
L-Tryptophan is an essential amino acid that creates niacin, an integral factor in creating the neurotransmitter serotonin. Tryptophan converts into 5-HTP, or 5-hydroxytryptophan, which then produces serotonin. Serotonin, though it affects several systems, is primarily responsible for regulating both mood and sleep. Being an essential amino acid tryptophan is not created by the body and needs to be obtained through diet or supplementation.

I've used several brands of l-tryptophan and found Hard Rhino to be the best. It helps me sleep, at least helps to get to sleep at night.I still don't sleep all night but at least can get right to sleep at 9:30 pm and sleep 5-6 hours. I feel Hard Rhino is a good, trustworthy company.
I like the fine consistency about the Tryptophan from Hard Rhino. It blends well and works!
