Eli Lilly just happened to have a patented version available. It’s not nearly as good as the real thing and couldn’t compete… Unless you can make the real thing unavailable.
The only toxic GMO source was 1 company in Japan.
The FDA did make convenient non-gmo L-tryptophan supplements illegal, even though L-tryptophan is an essential amino acid.
It looked bleak for turkeys – a rich natural source of l-tryptophan – but our US rulers decided not to make turkeys illegal.
Eli Lilly proceeded to promote the second rate, high cost prozac that was now protected from its all-natural, inexpensive, and superior competition.
You need L-tryptophan for life, health, sleep, and good moods… And the drug does not provide the same benefits.
Read on to discover more about how conveniently L-tryptophan was banned and Eli Lilly made another King’s Ransom from its patented version:
Special Investigative Report: L-tryptophan, Lactic Acid, Prozac and Naturally Treating Depression the Holistic Way
Written by Sarah C. Corriher
L-tryptophan is an essential amino acid that is found in many foods. It cannot be produced by the body itself, so it must be gained through a healthy diet, or through supplementation.
It is the active compound inside of turkey that causes drowsiness, and turkey is the greatest natural source for it. L-tryptophan was a very common dietary supplement before being blocked by the F.D.A. in 1989. It was used as a natural and holistic treatment for depression, and as a sleep aid.
It is widely believed that the body uses L-tryptophan as a building material to produce serotonin as needed. This is technically not true, as will be explained later.
There is a greater efficacy from L-tryptophan supplements than pharmaceutical S.S.R.I. (selective serotonin reuptake inhibitor) anti-depressants, because supplemental L-tryptophan helps a body to naturally regulate its own serotonin more effectively, so that there will never be too little or too much.
In addition, it helps the body to produce lactic acid, which has its own effect upon mood regulation.
We cannot forget to mention that as a natural substance, L-tryptophan cannot be monopoly patented, which was a big concern for the F.D.A. and its business partner, Eli Lilly (maker of Prozac), during the late 1980’s.
In the fall of 1989, the F.D.A. banned L-tryptophan sales, claiming that it caused a rare and deadly flu-like condition known as eosinophilia-myalgia syndrome. The F.D.A. allegation was dishonest following the usual pattern regarding herbs and supplements.
L-tryptophan is merely a naturally occurring amino acid that is already found inside our foods. In other words, all of us would be in serious trouble if the F.D.A. cronies had been telling the truth about L-tryptophan.
The illnesses reported by the F.D.A. were actually caused by toxic impurities in specific L-tryptophan products, which were imported by a Japanese manufacturer.
The manufacturer was found to have been secretly experimenting with a genetically engineered bacteria, in an attempt to speed the production process and efficacy of its tryptophan products.
Mixing a G.E. neurotoxin with a neurotransmitter precursor like L-tryptophan results in accelerated excitotoxin reactions beyond what is normally biologically possible. It was a process of mixing something like aspartame with a bio-engineered, bio-toxic, nervous system stimulant together: only worse.
The deadly end product of this engineering was never L-tryptophan, but it was the ammunition that the F.D.A. had been waiting for. The Japanese company was likely paid to taint its own products by the U.S. biotechnology industry, because the biotechnology industry would win regardless of the product’s success or failure.
E.M.S. was relabeled to ‘fibromyalgia‘, since “the cause” (L-tryptophan) was removed from the market, and it occurred anyway. A completely different disease was created by fiat, which conveniently had exactly the same symptoms.
This way, L-tryptophan was still guilty. This is the usual pattern for how F.D.A. scienceworks to remove unpatentable pharmaceutical competition.
No action was ever taken against the Japanese company responsible for the poisoned L-tryptophan products, by the way, and its involvement was abruptly hushed. Instead of dealing with the manufacturer, or the issues concerning the importation of contaminated products, the F.D.A. completely banned L-tryptophan as an illegal product on March 22nd, 1990.
It is currently legal again. Tryptophan is widely used by the health conscious and in alternative medicine.
Prozac was officially approved by the F.D.A. in December of 1987, but the sneaky marketing scheme had not yet been employed.
That’s where that story gets interesting.
Just four days after the F.D.A. ban on L-tryptophan, on March 26, 1990, Newsweek magazine featured a cover article praising the anti-depressant drug Prozac.
Four days later, its multi-color magazine cover paid homage to a floating, gigantic green and white capsule of Prozac, with the bold caption: “Prozac: A Breakthrough Drug for Depression”. Eli Lilly marketed Prozac as a new breakthrough to differentiate it from other S.S.R.I.’s, which had been taken off the market because they were so dangerous.
This 4 day coincidence went completely unnoticed by media sources, but it is jarring to anyone with a knowledge of how these two substances are believed to work. L-Tryptophan and Prozac are both believed to work with serotonin, which was a relatively new concept at the time.
Prozac (fluoxetine) is marketed to “enhance” the serotonin that is already present in the brain through some mystical reaction that can only be defined in grotesquely long marketing buzz words. It made great fodder for waiting room brochures. Prozac was never fully understood, so everyone was fair game in the experimental medicine game.
In contrast, the all natural L-tryptophan is well understood. It is used as a building material for the body to produce either serotonin or lactic acid; both of which play large roles in mood regulation.
This allows a body to produce exactly the amounts of its own natural serotonin and lactic acid that it needs; so that it has neither too much, nor too little of them. It is the safety net for an internal balancing act.
Tryptophan safely works with a body, instead of against it; by giving it a tool that is needed.
The drug patent on Prozac expired in 2001, which coincidentally is the very same year that the F.D.A. ban on L-tryptophan was lifted.
The F.D.A. was helping Eli Lilly again: this time by eliminating their would-be competitors.
With L-tryptophan again on the market made it impossible for smaller competitors to successfully profit while having to compete with Eli Lilly’s products and all natural tryptophan at the same time.
At that time, The F.D.A. was being flooded by legal actions regarding Prozac, due to its murderously psychotic “side effects”.
It’s worth noting that Eli Lilly then re-branded Prozac as “Sarafem” for the treatment of pre-menstrual dysphoric disorder (PMDD) in an attempt to illegally extend their patent through deception. Their patent was invalidated in a lawsuit against a generic drug manufacturer, which judicially laid to rest the patent for this sinister drug.
The Fluoride Connection
Notice the “fluo” part in Prozac’s chemical name, fluoxetine. It denotes the drug’s main active ingredient: fluoride. Fluoride is an active ingredient of all modern S.S.R.I. anti-depressants, and the trend of medicating depressed patients with high doses of fluoride began with Prozac.
Danger. Danger. Questioning, Exploring, Thinking should not be attempted without government guidance.
