Under the Food, Drug and Cosmetic Act (the Act), as amended by the Dietary Supplement Health and Education Act of 1994 (DSHEA), the manufacturer is responsible for ensuring that its products are safe. A firm is not required to obtain premarket review or approval from the FDA of its products before marketing them as dietary supplements. Moreover, a firm is not required to submit scientific evidence to FDA of the safety of its products or ingredients. While we are unaware of conclusive scientific data that would establish that a dietary supplement L-tryptophan would be safe, if a firm has information that it believes establishes that a product containing L-tryptophan is safe within the meaning of the Act, it could market such a product as a dietary supplement. The burden and responsibility for assuring that such a product is not adulterated under the Act is with the firm and not FDA.

Wow, yeah you're probably right! That is great news! Thanks for sharing. Wow, i should not be getting this exciting about something like this. Last time i was this excited was... well, i dont know. But still it's great news!
Oh, stjames, the difference between tryptophan in a multi- amino acid supplement (like the one showed) and just tryptophan is 1. The tryptophan content in the former is likely to be much lower (was very low in that example given) and 2. The tryptophan is gonna cross the blood brain barrier to a much lesser extent in the former-- bcz it is competing with all the other amino acids. Thats why sbest to take between meals also.
i can't wait to get my hands on some.
