Tryptophan Optimiser


+ Shipping

Boost your Tryptophan intake with this high quality Synergy Vita supplement. Tryptophan is a rate-limiting essential amino acid and a unique building block of proteins that your body needs.  This amino acid serves as the precursor for serotonin, N-acetylserotonin and melatonin that act as neurotransmitters, neuromodulators and neuro-hormones. Serotonin plays a key role different body functions such as mood, sleep, digestion, sexual desire wound healing and bone health. Melatonin is a powerful antioxidant and is involved in the regulation of the sleep-wake cycle. Optimal production of these substances enhances the function of body and brain, and can improve health, quality-of-life and well-being. Moreover, the liver can use tryptophan to produce vitamin B3 that is needed for energy metabolism, mental wellbeing and DNA production, and improves circulation.

Tryptophan is an essential amino acid, which means your body cannot produce it, so you must ensure optimal intake. Tryptophan is required for the production and maintenance of the body’s proteins, muscles, enzymes, hormones and neurotransmitters.


After water, proteins are the most abundant substance present in cells, and typically constitute 10 to 20 percent of the total cell mass. Proteins are relatively large molecules and represent the building blocks of all living beings, including humans. In turn, proteins are composed of many amino acids that are joined together to form long chains, much like beads arranged on a string.

Proteins can be broadly categorised into functional proteins that include enzymes, antibodies, haemoglobin, neurotransmitters, hormones; and structural proteins, such as collagen and elastin. Proteins accumulate damage during their functional life, requiring a constant renewal and repair via protein synthesis, this process called protein turnover.

Protein synthesis impinges on all aspects of cellular life, as this process provides cells with structural and regulatory molecules necessary for cellular function and survival. The body invests a large part of its energy for synthesising proteins, and in the optimal conditions, the body is able to constantly produce new proteins to replace those damaged.

However, such process is highly sensitive to the physiological state of the cell and the environmental conditions. One important factor that can limit the body’s ability to produce protein is the availability of essential amino acids such as Tryptophan.  Inability to produce proteins has numerous deleterious effects on the body, because when the accumulation of protein damage is greater than protein renewal, which limits the cellular capacity of repair, leading to weakened bones, loss of mass muscles, premature aging and many other problems.


Tryptophan is necessary for the production of serotonin that is an important chemical messenger, which act both as neurotransmitter and as a hormone.

Serotonin carries messages between nerve cells in your central nervous system and in your peripheral nervous system that control a multitude of body functions.

Serotonin plays numerous roles in the body, including influencing mood, memory and learning as well as regulating sexual drive and behaviour, body temperature and sleep. Insufficient serotonin levels play a role in depression, anxiety, mania and other health conditions.


The production of melatonin is achieved through a complex pathway, and the key steps involve Tryptophan that is converted to serotonin. In turn, serotonin is converted to N-acetylserotonin, which is eventually converted to melatonin.

Melatonin is a hormone produced brain that regulates the sleep-wake cycle, also known as circadian rhythms (24-hour internal clock).

Melatonin is crucial for controlling oxidative stress by scavenging free radical and stimulating antioxidants enzymes.

Melanin is involved in mitochondrial biogenesis, also helping mitochondria to cope with alterations in nutrient availability, energy supply, and cellular remodelling, which occur naturally throughout the day.

In addition, melatonin has antiaging properties and modulates immune system function.


The liver can use tryptophan to produce vitamin B3 (niacin). This vitamin is critical for energy production, and in the form of coenzymes nicotinamide adenine dinucleotide (NAD) and nicotinamide adenine dinucleotide phosphate (NADP) functions in many reactions such as redox reactions, ADP ribosylation, and sirtuin activation.

These two coenzymes are also the substrates for enzymes involved in regulating different biological functions, including gene expression, cell cycle progression, DNA repair and cell death.

In the central nervous system, vitamin B3 has long been recognized as a key mediator of neuronal development and survival.

Niacin deficiency leads to pellagra, the typical symptoms of which are dermatitis, diarrhoea, dementia, and death.

Tryptophan is also involved in various other important biological functions.


Suboptimal or deficiency of micronutrients is a very common problem, with adverse effects on health and wellbeing. The factor that contribute to inadequate levels of nutrients include:

  • Soil impoverishment (less amount of micronutrients)
  • Food processing (micronutrients are removed)
  • Infection (increased need of micronutrients to combat disease)
  • Reduced absorption because of gastrointestinal conditions
  • Toxic substances use (they reduce bioavailability and they deplete micronutrients)
  • Inflammation (elevated requirements of micronutrients)
  • Injury (increased needs for micronutrients)
  • Environmental toxicity (they reduce bioavailability and they deplete micronutrients)
  • Age (reduced absorption of micronutrients)
  • Oxidative stress (increased requirements of micronutrients)
  • Alcohol consumption (increased excretion of micronutrients)
  • Physical activity (increased need for micronutrients)
  • Fighting disease (increased requirements of micronutrients)
  • Microbiome alterations (altered absorption of micronutrients)
  • Genetic polymorphism (impaired absorption and utilisation of micronutrients)
