Aliness L-Tryptophan is a dietary supplement in the form of vegan capsules containing tryptophan. It has a positive effect on the mood and helps to regulate the circadian rhythm. In women, it may also relieve the symptoms of PMS.
Tryptophan is a protein amino acid, considered to be essential for life. It cannot be synthesized by the body, so it should be delivered with food, or with dietary supplements. It plays many important functions in the system – as a result of tryptophan transformation, serotonin, melatonin, niacin, and tryptamine are formed and these are very important compounds for the proper functioning of the body.
Tryptophan is a precursor to serotonin
Serotonin is one of the most important neurotransmitters in the nervous system. It controls, for example, mood, appetite, and the process of remembering. Its deficiency is one of the factors predisposing to a depressive state. Studies show that people who use a diet rich in products that are a source of tryptophan are significantly less prone to anxiety and neurotic disorders.
It also seems that the age-related progressive decline in serotonin production in the hippocampus correlates with the deterioration of cognitive functions. Rodent tests have shown that the consumption of tryptophan-rich foods has a positive effect on transcription factors involved in long-term synaptic plasticity and the formation of memory traces.
Disturbances in the serotonin system are also correlated with the occurrence of premenstrual syndrome symptoms. They mainly include mood worsening and excessive appetite. The results of research suggest that enhancement of serotonin production in the luteal phase of the cycle has a beneficial effect on women suffering from severe PMS symptoms, and thus it may potentially contribute to the improvement of well-being and the maintenance of appetite at a normal level.
Tryptophan as a precursor to melatonin
As a result of tryptophan transformations, melatonin is formed. It is responsible for the internal biological clock regulating the sleep-wake cycle. Researchers have proven that there is a relationship between the consumption of tryptophan-rich foods and the sleep duration and its better quality.
In summary, Aliness L-Tryptophan is a supplement that has a beneficial effect on mood and helps to combat insomnia. It may also reduce excessive appetite and the unpleasant symptoms of PMS.
The standard dose used in supplementation is 500 mg of tryptophan daily. The dose should not be exceeded without prior consultation with a specialist. It is best to take the supplement before bedtime.
The preparation should not be combined with antidepressants or oral contraceptives. Caution should also be taken by people with impaired renal or liver function.
