Optimized Tryptophan Plus
Serotonin is a neurotransmitter in the brain associated with positive moods and restful sleep. To produce and maintain optimum serotonin levels, your body requires tryptophan, an essential amino acid the body canâ€™t produce.
In the body, tryptophan has been shown to improve sleep, enhance mood and modulate stress. So Life Extension offers Optimized Tryptophan Plus to broadly and powerfully support tryptophan levels already within the normal range.
The basis for this formula is premium L-tryptophan, which has undergone significantly more rigorous manufacturing processes than regular tryptophan material to assure the highest purity and safety.
In addition to an optimum amount of premium tryptophan â€¦ this formula also provides a unique, balanced supply of other nutrients found to help maintain tryptophan activity in the body. Those nutrients include lysine, niacinamide, and extracts of hops and rosemary to provide nutritive support for the bodyâ€™s production of serotonin.
Read the entire label and follow the directions carefully prior to use.
Take up to three (3) capsules all at once before bedtime, or one capsule on an empty stomach before each meal, or as recommended by a healthcare practitioner.

Caution: Consult your healthcare provider before taking this product if you are taking prescription medications (e.g. MAOI and SSRI antidepressants) for depression. Concomitant use of L-tryptophan with antidepressant medications has the potential to increase the risk of serotonin syndrome, characterized by symptoms like confusion, sweating, agitation, nausea, involuntary muscle contractions, and racing heartbeat. Do not use L-tryptophan before driving or operating heavy machinery.
