Prohormone & Supplement Ingredients:


Tryptophan is an essential amino acid meaning it isn't produced in the body and must be present in the diet.

Tryptophan is plentiful in chocolate, oats, dried dates, milk, yogurt, cottage cheese, red meat, eggs, fish, poultry, sesame, chickpeas, sunflower seeds, pumpkin seeds, spirulina, bananas, and peanuts. Tryptophan is present in significant amounts in almost all forms of plant protein, and abundant in some.

Clinical research has shown mixed results with respect to tryptophan's effectiveness as a sleep aid. After absorbing L-tryptophan from food, our bodies convert it to 5-HTP (5-hyrdoxytryptophan), and then to serotonin. Serotonin is a hormone that transmits signals between nerve cells.
