Diabetes: Types I and II

In the United States, the incidence of diabetes in adults rose by 33% from 1990 to 1998 and still appears to be on the rise.  Obesity is considered one of the major risk factors for diabetes, but that may be more due to dietary choices.

Vegetarian Tryptophan™

Vegetarian Tryptophan™

#797

Vegetarian Tryptophan is a 100% vegetarian Food supplement that supplies tryptophan. Tryptophan is an esstenial amino acid and is needed to make many of the protein structures in the body.

90 Capsules | $38.98

Product Details

“L-tryptophan is an essential amino acid, which must be consumed from food since the body cannot make it using other amino acids. It is present in virtually all plant and animal proteins. Once the body absorbs L-tryptophan, it converts {some of}it into 5-hydroxytryptophan (5-HTP) and then into the neurotransmitter serotonin. It is primarily the serotonin that does all the wonderful things attributed to L-tryptophan—inducing sleep, reducing premenstrual syndrome (PMS) symptoms, promoting weight loss and addressing depression.” [1]. Additionally, L-tryptophan is necessary for the production of various protein structures in the body.

“Tryptophan is one of the eight essential amino acids found in the human diet. Essential amino acids are defined as those that cannot be made in the body and therefore must be obtained from food or supplements. (A ninth amino acid, histidine, is sometimes considered essential for children.)…

“A typical diet provides only 1,000 to 1,500 mg/day of tryptophan, yet there is much competition in the body for this scarce tryptophan” [2].

“In any normal diet, animal protein-based or vegetarian, tryptophan is the least plentiful of all 20 food amino acids. Thus, tryptophan is typically outnumbered as much as 9:1 in its competition to secure its transport through the blood-brain barrier into the brain. Eating a high-protein diet in an attempt to increase dietary tryptophan (a typical diet provides only 1-1.5 grams/day) only increases its competition even more” [3].

In the 1980s, “people seeking to lose weight, improve sleep, or alleviate depression used tryptophan to safely increase serotonin levels in the brain. Serotonin is the natural compound that promotes feelings of well-being, satiety, and relaxation” [2].

Although there are animal source of tryptophan, Vegetarian Tryptophan is from plants and is 100% vegan. 

Depression, Autism, Bipolar, Serotonin, & Tryptophan

L-tryptophan depletion seems to be a significant factor demonstrating the link between serotonin and depression. 

“Stress-related mood deterioration and affective disorders, such as depression, are among the leading causes of disease burden throughout the world, and are associated with severe medical consequences and mortality. Research has shown the involvement of dysfunctional brain serotonin (5-HT) biochemistry as a vulnerable biological factor in the onset of mood disturbances. Since the production of brain serotonin is limited by the availability of its plasma dietary amino acid precursor tryptophan, different foods and dietary amino acids that influence tryptophan availability are thought to alter affective behavior by changing brain 5-HT synthesis” [4]. Serotonin is synthesized in the body from the amino acid tryptophan [5].

It tends to be accepted that “impaired serotonin (5-HT) function can lead to clinical depression… The best evidence that 5-HT contributes to the pathophysiology of depression comes from studies of tryptophan depletion, which show that lowering brain 5-HT levels can induce acute symptomatic relapse in recovered depressed patients” [6].  “Amino acid mixtures that lower brain availability of the serotonin (5-HT) precursor tryptophan produce acute depressive relapse in women with a history of major depression…Women with a history of depression showed impaired regulation of brain 5-HT function in response to dieting” [7].

Those with bipolar disorder seem to have lower levels of serotonin [8]. A study involving those with obsessive compulsive disorder found that “[a]fter 5 h of tryptophan depletion, 6 out of 7 patients reported worsening of mood” [9].

Tryptophan depletion seems to increase depression as well as certain facial features associated with autism, like lack of proper emotional expression [10]. L-tryptophan supplementation has been found helpful to improve the mood of people with Hepatitis C [11].

A major study involving alcoholics trying L-tryptophan found that it led to “lower levels of depression” [12]. 

Sleep

Many people have had success with sleep taking L-tryptophan. There are probably several reasons for this. 

“For example, serotonin is the precursor to the sleep hormone, melatonin, making L-tryptophan an effective sleep aid. It has significant sedative- like proper ties, although, unlike other sedatives, it does not appear to impair performance. Specifically, L-tryptophan is not associated with impairment of visuomotor, cognitive or memory performance, nor does it elevate threshold for arousal from sleep” [13].

“Melatonin is a hormone synthesized in the pineal gland from tryptophan. It participates in several biological processes in the human being, such as circadian sleep rhythm, mood, reproductive processes and aging” [14].

 “More than 40 controlled studies have demonstrated L-tryptophan can help induce sleepiness in humans. In younger insomniacs, L-tryptophan is effective in inducing sleep the first night of administration; in more chronic, well-established or more severe insomnias, repeated administration of low doses of L-tryptophan over time may be required for therapeutic improvement.

“Generally, doses of 1 g/d or more are most effective. However, one study in mild insomniacs did report lower doses helped reduce the amount of time it took to fall asleep, with even 1/4 g/d of L-tryptophan increasing stage IV sleep” [13].

One recent study found that taking L-tryptophan increased both serotonin and melatonin and improved nocturnal sleep [15]. Another recent study found for with obsessive compulsive disorder, “Tryptophan depletion induced a worsening of sleep continuity” [16].

Human Growth Hormone, Aging, Obesity, & L-Tryptophan

“For years, many people have been looking for ways to increase their levels of human growth hormone (HGH). The value of increasing HGH can be understood by examining this hormone’s functions, which include maintaining the immune system, stimulating muscle growth through amino acid sparing and promotion of amino acid transport into muscle cells, and burning fat. L-tryptophan is also capable of increasing HGH. This was demonstrated in various human studies in the ’70s.” [13].

“Startling research findings reveal that brain serotonin levels decline sharply in most humans as they age…It was long ago established that tryptophan is the amino acid needed to produce serotonin in the brain…It would appear that serotonin deficiency may play an important role in the record number of Americans suffering from depression, insomnia, and excess weight gain…Recent studies, however, have identified specific age-related mechanisms that cause the degradation of tryptophan in elderly individuals” [2]. Therefore, it appears that supplemental L-tryptophan could be expected to reverse some of these losses of tryptophan and serotonin.

Some have indicated that L-tryptophan may be helpful for weight management and/or appetite control and/or other problems associated with low serotonin levels [e.g. 2,7,13,17]. “Plasma tryptophan ratios are below normal in obese subjects and may decrease with dieting, an effect that may partly be responsible for the high relapse rate after diet-related weight loss (ie, brain serotonin production remains low and stimulates appetite). Obese subjects are often insulin resistant, and diminished insulin action may cause low plasma tryptophan ratios because of the peripheral effects of insulin on amino acid uptake and utilization” [17].

“Serotonin neurons in the brain participate in the control of appetite. In general, serotonin neurons function in neuronal circuits that diminish food intake. Hence, treatments that enhance serotonin function reduce food intake, whereas those that diminish serotonin function stimulate food intake. The synthesis of serotonin in the brain is controlled in part by the availability of its amino acid precursor, L-tryptophan” [17].

Safety

There were some safety concerns about L-tryptophan that perhaps should be addressed here. “In 1989 and 1990, two reports of a new disease labeled eosinophiliamyalgia syndrome (EMS) were published and attributed to ingestion of L-tryptophan… Studies traced more than 95 percent of the cases of EMS to L-tryptophan supplied by Showa Denko K.K. of Japan. Analysis of case-associated lots revealed several chemical impurities. One of these, labeled “peak E”, is an unusual dimeric form of L-tryptophan (1,1’-ethylidenebis[tryptophan]), and its presence is considered to be associated with EMS” [1]. 

The FDA, instead of initially simply placing the blame on the bad batch (or non-L-tryptophan causes for the EMS issues raised), restricted general supplementation with L-tryptophan.

However it needs to be emphasized “that the very tryptophan that the FDA restricted is still used in infant formulas and intravenous feeding solutions. If there were any danger to tryptophan, we would have known about it long ago…For nineteen years, aging Americans have been forced to settle for less-than-optimal tryptophan/serotonin levels in their bodies” [2]—essentially because of unusual FDA restrictions.

It perhaps should be mentioned that an animal study designed to see if supplementation with relatively high levels of L-tryptophan could cause EMS concluded that it did not [18].

Notice the following comment from a study in the American Journal of Clinical Nutrition, “in our experience, pharmaceutical-grade tryptophan preparations in humans have never been associated with symptoms of EMS, suggesting that pure tryptophan preparations are safe” [19].

Here is what Ernest Hartmann (M.D.) of Tufts University wrote, “My laboratory has done many studies on the sleep inducing effects of tryptophan. The usual human dose is either 1 or 2 g of tryptophan taken at bedtime…I do not believe that the totality of current evidence suggests that people using L-tryptophan in the usual doses for sleep induction need be concerned or need to discontinue the practice” [20].

Tryptophan is a component of proteins, and, as such, has been consumed for thousands of years. It has been consumed in isolated forms for decades and is an essential amino acid.

Product Details

Herbal Antioxidants is a 100% vegan Food supplement that is intended to supply real antioxidant nutrients needed to maintain and support optimal health and protection from free radicals. Each of the antioxidant nutrients are 100% whole food and synergistically protect against a wide range of free radicals. Antioxidants are believed to help address the effects of aging, support healthy brain tissue, maintain capillary integrity, restore collagen strength, support health skin, and maintain a healthy cardiovascular system.

Carotenoids like alpha- and beta- carotene function as antioxidants. Herbal Antioxidant is a Food and contains betacarotene within carrots and tumeric, thus it includes multiple carotenoids, unlike isolated betacarotene that is in many antioxidant formulas.

Carrots also contain “xanthophyll, a very powerful anticancer phytochemical” [12]. Eleuthro Root is an adaptagen, which means that it helps the body deal with various forms of stress [13]. Ginger Root has constituents with antioxidant effects and can improve peripheral circulation [13].

Ginger Root functions as an antioxidant and has antiglycation effects according to at least one study involving diabetic patients [14].

Ginkgo Leaf contains about 40 different bioflavonoids (including proanthocyanidins and quercetin) that “act as free radical scavengers” [13]. “Cerebral insufficiency many cause anxiety and stress, memory, concentration, and mood impairment, and hearing disorders, all of which may benefit from ginkgo therapy” [15].

Milk Thistle Seed contains silymarin, which is a polyphenolic antioxidant flavonoid [16]; it has been studied for its role in supporting a health liver [17].

Rosemary Leaf contains antioxidants [12] and can “increase detoxification of carcinogens” in certain instances [13]. Schisandra Fruit “has pronounced liver protective effects” [13] and strong antioxidant activity [18]. Superoxide Dismutase (S.O.D.) is naturally found in at least two of the Foods in Herbal Antioxidant. S.O.D. “is one of the most important enzymes that functions as a cellular antioxidant…The absence of this enzyme is lethal” [19]. Turmeric Root contains curcuminoids which have antioxidant and cancer-inhibiting properties [13].

One study proved that our Food vitamin E has 12 micro moles per gram T.E. (Trolox equivalents) of lipophilic ORAC (oxygen radical absorbance capacity) [20]. ORAC is essentially a measurement of the ability to quench free radicals (antioxidant ability). That same study proved that our Food vitamin C has 492 micro moles per gram T.E. (Trolox equivalents) of hydrophilic ORAC (oxygen radical absorbance capacity) [20]—while blueberries (one of the highest ORAC sources [1]) only had 195 micro moles per gram T.E. [20]—thus our Food vitamin C has 2.52 times the ORAC ability of blueberries. Vitamin C containing food has over 15.6 times the ORAC of isolated ascorbic acid [1]–actually, there are doubts that isolated ascorbic acid has any significant antioxidant effects in humans [21]. Food C Complex is clearly superior for any interested in ORAC—which should include everyone!

Although vitamin C, “can readily donate electrons to quench a variety of reactive free radical and oxidative species and is easily returned to its reduced state”, simply taking vitamin C with two or three different antioxidants is not enough. All free radical and oxidative substances do not get neutralized by all antioxidants. For example, “The antioxidant function of vitamin E cannot be fulfilled by just any antioxidant” [2]. Natural RRR-alpha-tocopherol, which is found in Food, has 1.7 – 4.0 times the free radical scavenging strength of the other tocopherols [2]. Not only is Food selenium better than the selenium salts, it also seems to reduce toxicity associated with cisplatin chemotherapy [22] (selenium is also “a necessary mineral for the production of antioxidants in the body” [22])! Herbal Antioxidant’s other antioxidants offer unique benefits which have not been synthetically duplicated.

Thus, for true antioxidant protection, there is no better a choice than Herbal Antioxidant, the Food antioxidant!

FOOD RESEARCH has a list of Product Equivalents, e. g. Standard Process, Nutri-West, Medi-Herb etc.

Contains naturally occurring carbohydrates, lipids, proteins (including all ten essential amino acids), superoxide dismutase, and truly organic bioflavonoids as found in enzymatically processed Saccharomyces cerevisiae,mixed citrus fruits, carrots, soy, and the individually listed herbal foods. Unlike many so-called “antioxidant” formulas, Food Herbal Antioxidantcontains no synthetic USP nutrients, but only contains foods, food complexes, and food concentrates (its betacarotene is in a carrot food complex, unlike the unnatural isolate in most other formulas).

Numerous university studies have concluded that supplements containing food nutrients are better than USP isolates. Food nutrients are better because they contain important enzymes, peptides, and phytonutrients CRITICAL to the UTILIZATION of vitamins and minerals which are not present in isolated USP nutrients. Published research has concluded that food vitamins are superior synthetic/USP vitamins.

Other ingredients: Vegetable Lubricant, Silica, Vegetable Cellulose.

Suggested use: Serving size or as recommended by your health care professional. Adjust usage according to nutritional lifestyle requirements.
