Serotonin is a neurotransmitter made in the brain from tryptophan. Serotonin has been associated with positive moods and restful sleep.1-4
To produce and maintain optimum serotonin levels, your body requires tryptophan, an essential amino acid, which means that your body cannot produce it.1 In the body, tryptophan has been shown to: • Improve sleep3,4 • Enhance mood1,2,4 • Modulate stress5
Life Extension® offers Optimized Tryptophan Plus to broadly and powerfully support tryptophan levels already within the normal range. In addition to delivering an optimum intake of tryptophan itself—the Optimized Tryptophan Plus formula also provides a unique, balanced supply of other nutrients found to help maintain tryptophan activity in the body.6-8
Optimized Tryptophan Plus blends lysine, niacinamide, and extracts of hops and rosemary to provide nutritive support for the body’s production of serotonin.
