Natural Home Cures Freeze Dried Nopal Powder Capsules (Prickly Pear) Contains Tryptophan (Essential Amino Acid)

(*) See References and Disclaimer at the bottom of the page.

Our Freeze Dried Nopal Powder Capsules (Prickly Pear) contains tryptophan. The brain uses tryptophan to make serotonin, a neurotransmitter associated with relaxation. Moreover, tryptophan is responsible for many of the 'chemical messengers' produced by the body and is required for optimal nervous system health.(1*)  This is an essential amino acid that we must consume daily as the body can not store amino acids.(2*)

A small percentage of the tryptophan that we ingest gets converted into niacin which plays a role in metabolizing and converting fats, proteins and carbohydrates into energy,(3*) Tryptophan helps to regulate insulin.(4*)

Sources of Tryptophan
