L-tryptophan is essential for life as an essential amino acid (EAA). Apart from its effects on muscle development, Tryptophan is involved in numerous body functions and has great effects on regeneration and sleep.
Optimized with vitamin B complex for better assimilation and utilization.
What can I expect from Tryptophan?
Tryptophan is an essential amino acid that supports recovery and relaxation. The overall effect depends on your eating habits and the use of additional supplements (BCAA, protein, and creatine).
For a constant and sufficient supply of amino acids, take additional fast proteins (in the morning and before and/or after training) and slow proteins to support Tryptophan’s strong but short effect and to avoid muscle degradation.
Function and Impact:
Single amino acids such as Tryptophan, in contrast to other amino acids from protein concentrates or other amino acid combinations, have the advantage that their special effects are isolated. This can only happen if the individual amino acid dominates the blood stream. In contrast, sources of proteins come with a variety of amino acids, released at the same time competing in the blood stream, competing for dominance against each other. This is why single amino acids should be taken on an empty stomach.
Tryptophan is necessary just as much as BCAAs leucine, isoleucine and valine, and thus is essential for muscle structure and essential for many endogenous proteins. Athletes often consume Tryptophan protein concentrates, which is why supplementation with Tryptophan is very popular.
Apart from being a building material of muscles, Tryptophan contributes to internal balance, better sleep, and helps to overcome depressions and fear. Tryptophan enhances recovery from training stress and other stress factors.
Tryptophan helps to prevent headaches and migraines and cravings for sweets which it is why it is useful for many people with such problems.
