Background About Lidtke L-Tryptophan
From their beginning in 1994, it has been their crusade to meet the highest standards in the world. They question everything, and they look beneath the surface. The world changes, and it takes work to keep up. That is their job: to stand between the consumer, and the nearly incomprehensible chaos of the nutrition world.
L-Tryptophan Complete is a unique formulation designed to maximize and maintain healthy levels of serotonin in the brain. In conversations, health professionals occasionally report that poorly nourished individuals or individuals in poor health not respond fully to plain L-Tryptophan, even when L-Tryptophan is clearly indicated by tests and symptoms. It is for these individuals, and for individuals in third world and developing nations, that L-Tryptophan Complete was developed.
The normal production of both Serotonin and Melatonin from L-Tryptophan depends on numerous enzymes – some of which are part of the L-Tryptophan > Serotonin pathway, and some of which are not. Each enzyme in this process depends, in turn, on specific cofactors and coenzymes. Without these, an enzyme is like a car without wheels, and the biochemical pathway may function poorly or become a dead end – forcing metabolites down alternative pathways that can produce side effects.
Getting the right nutrient to the right enzyme is the key.
Once in your cells, L-Tryptophan can follow many pathways. The challenge is to encourage L-Tryptophan to follow the one branch that leads to serotonin – and to discourage L-Tryptophan from producing undesirable kynurenine or quinolinic-acid compounds. Lidtke has studied these pathways and has identified cofactors and coenzymes that uniquely help produce and sustain healthy serotonin levels, for a brighter outlook and a more productive life.
A message from the founder
Lidtke was founded to provide rare and extremely high-quality nutrients to patients and physicians throughout the country. Today, they provide supplements and medical foods to patients and health care practitioners in the United States and in over thirty-five other countries. They take pride in their company and community, and they hope their customers share their belief in meticulous attention to detail and good service.
Because they are a manufacturer of finished products, not a distributor, they are able to answer questions fully. It is Lidtke's goal, in fact, to provide the most informed customer service in the industry.
Unique Product Formulation & Ingredients
Lidtke performs its own research and development of new product formulations. As a further sign of our commitment to the health of their customers, Lidtke chooses to work with the most respected manufacturers of fine ingredients and raw materials. For example, testing conducted at some of the most advanced independent laboratories, including laboratories at the United States Food and Drug Administration, consistently confirm that their raw materials are among the “purest in the world.”
While some companies may “shop” for independent laboratories that “manipulate” the data to make a product look pure, they never trust the numbers. They dissect the data for flaws in analysis, and they work with scientists who know what they are doing and take pride in their work.
Lidkte believes that a guarantee should be simple, and they genuinely hope that all of their products will benefit your family’s health and help you live a more abundant life.
Lidtke Frequently Asked Questions
Does the weather have any effect on Lidtke products during shipping?
The only product that is particularly sensitive to temperature is Lidtke NADH powder. For this product, 2nd day shipping with a cold pack is recommended in order to keep it cool during transit (also recommend long-term storage in either the freezer or refrigerator). All other products should be fine in any weather during shipping.
What does USP stand for?
USP stands for United States Pharmacopeia. The USP is an organization that maintains the quality of medicines for human and animal consumption. They are also responsible for developing authoritative information about the appropriate use of medicines.
Is a prescription needed to take your Lidtke L-Tryptophan?
None of Lidtke's consumer products containing L-Tryptophan require a prescription. Some of their products for specialty medical applications may require a prescription, but these are not advertised.
Is Lidtke Tryptophan organic? Is it Kosher?
There is no official standard that defines “organic” L-Tryptophan, so the term can be used very loosely. The molecule itself is an organic molecule, and there is nothing preventing a company from calling it “organic.” On the other hand, Lidtke can state that their L-Tryptophan is manufactured by natural fermentation, using glucose as a substrate, and no animal products are used in the process. As a consequence, they are the only company that can claim their product is officially Kosher.
How is Lidtke L-Tryptophan made?
As with nearly all amino acids that are produced for food or medicine, Lidtke L- Tryptophan is made by a natural fermentation process. It may seem surprising, but it would actually be much more expensive to make L-Tryptophan synthetically, and it would be even more expensive to extract it from common foods. Of course, new technologies keep changing, and someone may find an inexpensive way to make L-Tryptophan by another method. In any case, sophisticated purification methods must be used to ensure a product’s safety, and if they are not used, it will show up in chromatograms and other methods of testing for quality. These purification procedures are expensive, and they are the reason that they spend so much on our raw material. They could pay one-third as much as we do for raw material, but it has not been their choice to do so.
Is L-Tryptophan harmed by heat?
After studying L-Tryptophan’s melting characteristics in the chemistry lab, it can be said that Lidtke K-Tryptophan does not begin to decompose until about 460°F and does not melt until about 545°F. These are temperatures well in excess of those encountered in shipping.
Even when baking a turkey, the exterior temperatures may get fairly high, and you can see this because the skin starts to turn brown (decompose), but the interior of the turkey may be much lower, perhaps only 170°F. So even during baking, L-Tryptophan typically will remain unharmed, which is why you can still get nourishment from cooked food.
