    NOW - L-Tryptophan - 60 Veggie Capsule(s) - NPN: 80035972 -- L-tryptophan is an essential amino acid that helps the body make proteins and certain brain-signaling chemicals.Your body changes L-tryptophan into a brain chemical called serotonin. Serotonin helps control your mood and sleep.You can get all the L-tryptophan that your body needs by eating a healthy, balanced diet. Supplement doses depend on the health condition you are trying to prevent or treat.Some people take L-tryptophan supplements to try to help them sleep. Low levels of L-tryptophan have been seen in people with depression. Some claim up to 6 grams of L-tryptophan daily may help improve your mood or ward off mental health disorders such as depression.There is limited research to back these claims and studies show mixed results in supporting these claims.Some women take L-tryptophan supplements to try to ease mood swings due to premenstrual syndrome (PMS), also called premenstrual dysphoric disorder (PMDD). The theory is that these conditions may be linked to a problem with serotonin processing in the body, and that L-tryptophan could help that. However, there is little evidence to show this really works.Early research in people hints that L-tryptophan supplements may be helpful for: Obstructive sleep apnea Seasonal affective disorder (SAD)

    What Our Customers Are Saying


    I have been in multiple times since they opened and I love this store! Well organized, clean and really friendly staff. The owner is very friendly and genuinely cares about the customers. I was looking at some hair products and one of the employees came over and showed me her favourites and I ended up buying everything she recommended and I am not disappointed! My hair feels and smells amazing! This is seriously my favourite store in Fredericton! Such a great variety of products that you can feel safe using :)

    I am so grateful to all the staff, especially Eleanor, who have been super helpful when I have come into the store or called in. I only recently discovered Sequoia Fredericton, but IMO, having worked in the service industry myself, the greatest achievement of a business is to have a team that exceeds service expectations and strives to offer 'personalized' care to every person who walks through the door. This is what I get at Sequoia, which is now my go-to store! Thanks :)
