Default Improve Mood, Cognition, Memory, Sleep - L Tryptophan

I truly didn't realize the huge benefits of this amino acid and I've recently found it to be a god-send for those middle of the night wake ups and not getting back to sleep, now I get right back to sleep. But in research it more I'm finding it increases serotonin which supports Mood and what I've mentioned above.

I take 500mg at 10:30PM with my other sleep stuff and now will take it in the morning and see how I fare during the day with it... best on empty stomach.

I don't know about those taking Anti depressant drugs as this amino increases serotonin and if you take A/D drug there could be a conflict,,,but don't know....do research...

I don't take A/D drugs and don't want to..so maybe some can even get off the drugs if they find this amino works for them.

It's exciting to find something that really works.

There are a lot of links but I like this one for now:
