Life Choice Tryptophan + B6 is a supplement we recommend for battling postpartum depression (when not breastfeeding).
Tryptophan is an essential amino acid, used by the brain to produce serotonin, a necessary neurotransmitter which is responsible for normal sleep.
Tryptophan also helps combat depression, insomnia and has been known to help stabilize moods. It has also been known to help control hyperactivity in children, alleviates stress, benefits the heart, aids in weight control as an appetite suppressant, and enhances the release of growth hormone. B-6 (pyridoxine) is necessary for the formation of tryptophan, which is required for the formation of serotonin.
L-tryptophan does not work by drugging or depressing the central nervous system, L-tryptophan simply returns normal function by being available for the body to use as needed. Although tryptophan is found in foods, such as brown rice, cottage cheese, turkey, peanuts, and soy protein, the best way is supplementation, since this is the only way to cross the blood brain barrier for absorption in any noticeable amount.
The B-6 will prevent undesirable degradation of excreted tryptophan.
