How Tryptophan Helps Improve Sleep

How Tryptophan Helps Improve Sleep

Low quality sleep is a frequent problem for many and can hinder daily life and negatively impact health and longevity.1

Melatonin regulates sleep and research indicates that raising tryptophan levels in the body increases levels of melatonin.2

Two studies have found that consuming more tryptophan in the diet helps improve sleep by increasing the production of melatonin.3,4

Research has shown that supplementing melatonin improves sleep quality, decreases the time it takes to fall asleep and increases time spent sleeping.5

A study on insomniacs supplementing with tryptophan found that total sleep time increased by 28% by decreasing the time it took to fall asleep and increasing the time spent sleeping.6

In another study in insomniac participants, researchers found that tryptophan was able to increase REM sleep otherwise known as deep sleep.7

A study has even shown tryptophan is even able to improve sleep for those with obstructive sleep apnea.8


Tryptophan supplementation helps raise melatonin which plays an important role in improving sleep.

In addition to tryptophan, there are several other nutrients and herbs which have been shown to positively affect sleep by decreasing onset, increasing duration and improving quality in scientific studies. We combined them into one simple formula called Sleep Support by Beyond Vita®.*
