Protect Against Tryptophan Breakdown for the Ultimate Sleep
In order to achieve optimal sleep, the body requires a sufficient supply of the essential amino acid – tryptophan. Tryptophan is the precursor to the balancing happy brain chemical – serotonin. Serotonin is needed to manufacture melatonin – the premiere sleep supporting hormone.1 So without adequate tryptophan levels, we suffer from sleep disturbances followed by moodiness, depression, anxiety and excessive cravings (and sometimes binge eating).2-4
The problem is that it is very difficult to maintain adequate tryptophan levels – especially as we get older – as tryptophan is one of the least common amino acids in foods. Aside from this, tryptophan is easily degraded by specialized enzymes in the body that are increased due to:
- Excess stress
The end result is less tryptophan, which often leads to serotonin-deficiency states that can often manifest in:2-4
- Inadequate sleep
- Moodiness and increased anxiety
- Weight gain and enhanced desire to eat sweet and starchy foods
- Loss of a zest for life
So What Makes Ultimate Sleep Stand Out from the Rest?
Ultimate Sleep tackles the tryptophan problem by providing 5-HTP (5-hyroxytryptophan), which is manufactured by the body from tryptophan and is the direct building block for making serotonin. The 5-HTP in Ultimate Sleep is naturally extracted from seeds of the griffonia plant – a West African medicinal plant. Due to its serotonin enhancing effects, 5-HTP has been used to help induce better sleep, control depression, reduce anxiety and stress, reduce cravings and aid in weight reduction.5,6
In addition to 5-HTP Ultimate Sleep protects tryptophan by including the amino acid Lysine. Lysine competes for the enzyme that breaks down tryptophan in the body. By competing for this enzyme, there is more tryptophan available for the production of more serotonin and melatonin production.7 Niacinamide helps to prevent tryptophan breakdown as well, since the body will use tryptophan to make more vitamin B3 if there is not enough niacinamide in the body.8,9 Supplementing with extra niacinamide can help to prevent this and maintain higher tryptophan levels.
Ultimate Sleep also provides an effective dose of melatonin itself. Melatonin is the body’s primary sleep hormone. Melatonin is responsible for regulating the body’s internal clock and sleep-wake cycle. Research has shown that taking melatonin before bedtime significantly improves the ability to fall asleep and stay asleep and improves overall sleep quality.10,11
Finally, Ultimate Sleep completes its superior and comprehensive formula with two, well-known anxiety reducing nutrients. These are the amino acid theanine and the extract of the Jujube fruit. Theanine is derived from green tea, and has been documented in numerous studies to exhibit a natural relaxing sensation and to help reduce excess stress without drowsiness or other side effects.12 Jujube fruit has been used for centuries to help treat insomnia and anxiety. The herb has been shown to calm, relax, reduce stress, conserve energy, and promote sleep.13
