Lidtke Technologies L-Tryptophan, USP - 60 Capsules

Sleep well and stay calm with Lidtke's L-Tryptophan. Lidtke's L-Tryptophan is for the dietary management of sleeplessness, eating disorders and anxiety. It is well-known that European pharmaceutical standards for L-Tryptophan are far higher than U.S. or Japanese standards. The Europeans take safety seriously, as we do at Lidtke. The European standard not only demands testing for known toxins that are ignored in the U.S. and Japan, but European standards have much lower limits on contaminants, overall. Although many products claim to meet pharmaceutical standards, clearly not all pharmaceutical standards are the same – not even close.

From Lidtke's beginning sixteen years ago, it has been their crusade to meet the highest standards in the world. Lidtke questions everything, and they look beneath the surface. The world changes, and it takes work to keep up. That is Lidtke's job: to stand between you, the customer, and the nearly incomprehensible chaos of the nutrition world, and to look out for your interests, your health and your safety.

Mimicking Serotonin
In the world of life sciences, serotonin is one of the biggest celebrities. Tens of thousands of prescriptions are being written every day for pills that fool your body into thinking it has more serotonin than it does. There is little doubt about it, serotonin has become a goldmine for the pharmaceutical industry.

We need serotonin, it is true. All the surveys and all the psychometric testing could not make it more clear: our country needs to calm down and get some sleep… and stop eating so much carbohydrate. But there are two vastly different approaches to making your body think it has more serotonin. One is to mimic it. The other is to make it.

What is puzzling is that with all the articles being written about serotonin, you might think the public would be more familiar with L-tryptophan. There’s really no better, no more-natural way to make serotonin.

What exactly does serotonin do that makes it so important? Serotonin is a neurotransmitter, and neurotransmitters trigger the signals that pass through your neurons. In other words, neurons are a channel of communication in your body,but different types of neurons send different signals.

The neurons that produce serotonin from L-tryptophan, for example, promote feelings of well being, calm, personal security, relaxation, confidence and concentration.

However, your body also has contrary neurons that produce noradrenaline and similar, excitatory hormones. This family of hormones is associated with tension, anger, aggression, obsessive-compulsive behaviors, violence, sleeplessness, fear and cravings.

We may all recognize some of these symptoms. To say that our whole country is suffering from an L-tryptophan deficiency is more than speculation. Years of research into our eating habits, combined with the chemical analysis of blood samples from hundreds of patients all over the country, reveal that of all the essential amino acids, L-tryptophan is most lacking.

Unfortunately, the amount of L-tryptophan in food is small. In addition, many of us have food sensitivities or full-blown allergies to grains or dairy products, and many of us are not too keen on meats. So, logic would tell us that it may be of no help to have L-tryptophan in a food if you cannot digest the food. For this reason, Lidtke takes pride in producing the finest L-tryptophan supplements available.
