The last ingredient of Lifeboost Fuel is fermented l-tryptophan. This is an amino acid found in plant and animal proteins.
You may have heard it termed as an essential amino acid. This is because your body needs it but can't make it on its own. So, it's imperative that you gain this from your diet or supplement through sources like Lifeboost Fuel.

Fueling your body with l-tryptophan is known to both improve mood and allow your body to better respond to stress by promoting healthy serotonin production.
Studies based on the use of l-tryptophan to change the rate of serotonin synthesis in the brain have proven its use to be beneficial, and even an important factor in improving mood, behavior, and cognitive function.
Some clinical trials even show its effectiveness in treatment of psychiatric disorders.
Fermented l-tryptophan is also associated with:
- Healthy sleep
- Decreased anxiety
- Improving depression symptoms
- Increased emotional well being
Another component of Lifeboost fuel is goMCT, medium chain triglycerides. These are healthy fats that convert to ketones, "a clean alternative energy source for the brain and body.
goMCT contains pure C8 and C10 fatty acids, which are the most effective at converting to ketones.
As many studies show, declining gut health can lead to declining cognitive function, which is then exacerbated as we age.
Combined with acacia fiber, goMCT "optimizes the brain-gut axis."
A healthy brain-gut connection leads to greater alertness, feelings of awareness, and increased energy and focus.
The acacia fiber used in goMCT packs some added bonuses as it regulates blood sugar levels, gives a boost to your gut with prebiotics, and provides satiety, making you feel fuller longer and thus aiding in weight management.
Medium chain triglycerides in and of themselves (minus the acacia fiber) also support weight loss as they increase your body's release of hormones that promote satiety.
The way that MCTs are processed within the body takes them directly from your digestive tract to your liver where they can be used for energy, which can cause an increase in the number of calories you burn daily.
MCTs improve overall gut health, aiding in all negative effects associated with aging, from poor immune responses, to weight gain, to lost brain function, painful joints, and wrinkling, sagging skin.
MCTs are also associated with:
- Increased production of HDL cholesterol
- Lowering LDL cholesterol
- A decreased risk of heart disease
- Regulated blood sugar levels
- Improvements in athletic performance through reducing lactate buildup
- Reduced inflammation
- Improved memory
gGoMCT uses proprietary ingredients making it a superior quality source of ketone converting healthy fats that your body needs for optimal health.
