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.
