Introducing Durk Pearson & Sandy Shaw’s Tryptophan and 5-HTP Formulations . . .
As we age, our ability to remain calm dissipates in the face of life’s burdens and responsibilities. Our happiness suffers. The quality of restorative sleep diminishes. All of these affect our ability to be serene, tranquil, and productive. Consequently, we are not all we can—or should—be.
But with the reappearance of Ajinomoto’s TryptoPure™ top-quality tryptophan (along with the availability of Linnea’s impeccable 5-HTP), research scientists Durk Pearson & Sandy Shaw have designed three extraordinary formulations that together constitute their Serene Systems.™
Based on Durk & Sandy’s biochemical pathways studies, Serene Systems includes nutrients that work together, rather than a single substance or a collection of substances not known to work together.
The result is increased functionality. Serene Systems formulations accommodate how your body actually operates and what it requires in the way of precursors and cofactors to help realize your full potential for inhibitory serotonergic and circadian rhythm functioning.
The formulations are: Serene Tranquility Day with 5-HTP and Serene Tranquility Night with Tryptophan or 5-HTP. All three formulations contain either the serotonin precursor tryptophan or 5-HTP (5-hydroxytryptophan), a safe and natural metabolite of tryptophan, along with a wide array of cofactors.
Serotonin is a neurotransmitter (not a drug) that is instrumentally involved in inhibitory functioning. The Day formulation is for calmness as well as to help control carbohydrate cravings. The Night formulations differ from the Day in that they contain melatonin for supporting natural sleep and more youthful circadian rhythm function.
Which formulation is for you? Because some people have low levels of an enzyme that promotes the production of serotonin from tryptophan, the 5-HTP formulations are better for them, because 5-HTP is the immediate precursor to serotonin. Otherwise, the tryptophan formulation can be used, with the added advantage that you are less likely to produce excess serotonin in certain tissues, which could cause undesirable, but minor, effects, such as a stuffy nose. If you anger easily, you may have low levels of the enzyme referred to above, and the 5-HTP formulations are for you.
If you make Serene Tranquility a regular part of your life, the next time someone says “Calm down,” you can near guarantee that it won’t be directed at you. “Serene Tranquility,” you will be happy to say, “has helped me reclaim my birthright to be peaceful, calm, and productive!”
Suggested Use: The recommended daily serving is 1 fully rounded tablespoon stirred into water, taken at bedtime.
