Tryptophan possesses a remarkable array of applications for maintaining good health. This can be traced to the fact that Tryptophan is an essential amino acid that is necessary for life and growth, so it cannot be replaced by any vitamin, mineral, herb, or prescription chemical, and it cannot be made by your own body.
Tryptophan is best known for its efficient relief of serotonin deficiency symptoms, such as common depression, common anxiety, irritable bowels, inflammation of the colon, hormonal imbalances, particularly estrogen/progesterone imbalances, premenstrual symptoms, unhealthy cravings for alcohol and carbohydrates, plus other common mental and emotional difficulties. This amino acid’s effectiveness for insomnia symptoms is quite high as well.
The administrator of natural medicine at the Anew Skin & Wellness Center in Brookfield, Wisconsin, Carol Van Zelst, Ph.D., MS, FD (Functional Diagnostic Medicine), recounts how her patients benefit from taking Tryptophan for their common mental/emotional problems.
“For three years I have been using Tryptophan as a support for increasing levels of serotonin in disorders of the mind and emotions. This nutrient is useful for helping a patient overcome various illnesses connected to serotonin deficiency syndromes, such as mood swings, obsessive thoughts, insomnia, mood suppression, and nutritional deficiencies to the gut,” states Dr. Van Zelst.
Balance Mood and More with Tryptophan: Grumpiness, irritability, stress, and anxiety are common in aging adults.
These symptoms, as well as more severe ones like sleep disorders, depression, post-traumatic stress disorder, and suicidal thinking, have all been traced to depletion of brain levels of the neurotransmitter serotonin, which is responsible for maintaining an “up” mood.
Although you can’t supplement with serotonin itself, its precursor, the amino acid tryptophan, is readily available as a safe, well-proven supplement.
Supplementation with tryptophan reduces irritability in older adults, in women with premenstrual syndrome, and in people with depression and anxiety.
Workouts? One study showed a 49% increase in the length of a hard workout, while another showed that distance runners supplementing with tryptophan covered more than half a kilometer more than placebo recipients. Tryptophan-supplemented athletes just don’t give up as easily or as early.
The result? Longer, more comfortable workouts, with less pain. That’s an outcome even a grumpy old man can smile about.
