Tryptophan, an essential amino acid, is the precursor to Serotonin, which is a necessary neurotransmitter responsible for transmitting nerve impulses in the brain, and inducing sleep and tranquility. Serotonin deficiencies, which are related to Tryptophan deficiencies, are welldocumented in cases of depression and insomnia. Tryptophan also converts to Niacin, and Vitamin B-6 (Pyridoxal 5’Phophate) is necessary for Tryptophan metabolism and conversion to Serotonin. The dietary sources of Tryptophan are cottage cheese, milk, brown rice, peanuts, meat, turkey and soy products. It is also available in supplemental form. Montiff supplies only the highest quality, USP Tryptophan, which is now available for professional use. Tryptophan is very important for biochemical balance of the brain, and is very helpful for those with sleep deprivation, anxiety and mood enhancement due to low Serotonin levels. It also helps to biochemically balance the brain in those whose Serotonin levels are low because of chemical addictions. It has also been effective in appetite control, increasing pain tolerance and assisting those with jet lag.
TRYPTOPHAN AND SLEEP
Sleep deprivation is a serious concern for many, and low Serotonin levels are often the cause of this problem. Tryptophan converts to Serotonin helping to induce relaxation and naturally enhancing sleep. Two capsules 30 minutes prior to bedtime are recommended, on an empty stomach, with fruit juice or water. (No protein for 2- hours prior). Tryptophan can also be taken during the night. In extreme problems, Tryptophan should be taken early evening and again at bedtime. Vitamin B-6, along with increasing dietary complex carbohydrates are important for proper metabolism and effectiveness.
It has been well documented that low Serotonin levels have been associated with depression. Tryptophan naturally converts to this neurotransmitter. If depression also involves Catecholamine biochemistry, then taking Tryptophan in a regimen along with Tyrosine (Neuro-Balance) is recommended. They compete for uptake in the brain, and because Tryptophan induces sleep, it is recommended that Tryptophan be taken prior to dinner & again prior to bedtime. Neuro-Balance should be taken prior to breakfast & mid morning as well.
Increased Serotonin levels have an effect on increasing pain tolerance, especially for chronic pain caused from arthritis and lower back problems. In one study, Tryptophan was administered at the dose of 1-500mg. capsule every 2 ½ hours (total 6 per day) resulting in a 50% reduction in pain intensity. A high carbohydrate diet is recommended to increase Tryptophan metabolism, along with Vitamin B-6. D- Phenylalanine is also recommended in some cases to enhance results, and supplementation with Montiff D-Phenyl-Relief is suggested.
Some studies suggest that administering Tryptophan helps control appetite, for those who are on a weight reduction program.
Cocaine addiction causes a deficiency of L-Dopamine and causes both Catecholamine and Serotonin neurotransmitters imbalances. Administering both L-Tyrosine (Montiff Neuro-Balance) and L-Tryptophan can help increase these neurotransmitters. This regimen has been used in chemical dependency units, along with conventional therapies. Tryptophan may also be helpful for those addicted to nicotine.
Supplementing with L-Tryptophan is recommended for those who travel and experience jet lag. It is most effective when taken in conjunction with L-Tyrosine (Montiff Neuro-Balance) to increase Catecholamine as well as Serotonin production.
SAFETY OF L-TRYPTOPHAN
Volumes of research have been published on the effectiveness and safety on the supplementation of Tryptophan for deficiencies relating to sleep disorders, depression, pain tolerance and other benefits for more than 30 years. Montiff supplies only the highest quality USP L-Tryptophan, which has been carefully evaluated.
