It's back, and better than ever! L-Tryptophan is a precursor to serotonin, and it's powerfully effective when used properly. By supporting serotonin levels, L-tryptophan not only helps us fall asleep and stay asleep, but it also promotes mental health and provides dietary support against nervousness and tension.* TryptoPure L-Tryptophan from Swanson Ultra is the purest pharmaceutical-grade tryptophan on the world market. It's produced through a fermentation process from a vegetarian source, using the most precise standards for safety and quality assurance. Want to hear more?

L-Tryptophan Tryptopure 100% Pure Pharmaceutical Grade is rated 4.5 out of 5 by 69.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love this product! One tablet taken 1 hour or so before I want to retire for the night. The effect is not dramatic but I am aware that "I am ready to go to bed". When I turn out the lights I then take a Swanson dual-release 3mg of Melatonin and within 15 min I am asleep....for the night!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Good product in more ways than one I really like the way it makes me relax at night after a stressful day at work. I wake up feeling refreshed and in a good mood. When I run out I can really tell

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Works when nothing else did! This is my first review because it is the first product we use that has shown immediate, positive results. Many of the vitamins and supplements we take are for "insurance" based on research and recommendations from various (real) authorities. This product worked the very first night and each night since. My wife (age 66) had problems getting to sleep at night and this fixed it. She has told me "Get another bottle!"

Rated 3 out of 5 by from No better than regular L-Tryptophan... After the placebo effect wore off, it didn't put me to sleep any faster than the much less expensive regular L-Tryptophan (2X, 1hr before bed).

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Just What My Body Needed This product has helped me so much in fighting feelings of stress. I also take L-theanine. Everyone's body is different, but these two together are just what my body needed.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Very natural. L-Tryptophan (2 capsules) helps me fall asleep very naturally, stay asleep longer, and I can get up in the morning without feeling drugged and without any dry-eye symptoms, which I get with melatonin.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Not sure about this stuff... Well, I've been using L-tryptophan for about 9 days now. I have a lot of trouble sleeping and I have to say this stuff really did help. So why the bad review? Well, in the first few days of taking the supplement, I noticed a cough and just a few days ago, I noticed some hair loss. I don't take any other medications, so I started to do some research on the internet and found that these can in fact be side effects of taking L-tryptophan. Unfortunately, I am going to have to discontinue use...makes me sad, because I actually was finally getting a good nights sleep.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Couldn't sleep After not being able to sleep and watching that clock hour after hour I decided I had to try something. I order AjiPure L-Tryptophan with the hope that it would put me to sleep like a turkey dinner does. I have been using it for about 2 weeks now and I have had only 1 night that I haven't slept well. Taking AjiPure L-Tryptophan is that only thing that I have done different. I am very happy so far with this product!!!!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Continuous Sleep Get your tryptophan without eating a turkey sandwich or drinking milk. I was not a good sleeper unless I ate turkey or drank milk because they both contain tryptophan. Now I can take a capsule and sleep good without the disturbances of late-night food or drink.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from The best!! At times I have a difficult time falling asleep or staying asleep the entire night. Taking 2 Tryptophan before bed helps me tremendously!! I fall asleep within 30 minutes and sleep all night. When I wake up in the morning, there are no after effects and I'm ready to get up. This is by far the best I have tried to help with sleep.
