What is it?
L-Tryptophan is an essential amino acid. Amino acids are the molecules that our bodies use to build proteins and perform other essential functions in the body. An essential amino acid is especially important because it cannot be produced by our bodies, so it must be obtained through our diet.
What is it good for?
L-Tryptophan is used by our bodies in many ways. A deficiency can have a lot of negative effects.

How do I use it?
L-Tryptophan can be sold in powder or pill form, although pill form is much more common. For the average adult, the dosage recommended by your supplement provider will generally be close to 500mg but for any questions you should check with your health care provider for your optimal dosage. As with all supplements, you should not use more than the recommended effective dosage. You should stop using the supplement and consult a health care professional if you develop any unwanted side effects. The most common of these include heartburn, stomach ache, gas, nausea, diarrhea, headache, and light-headedness.
How does it work?
In our bodies, we make use of signaling molecules called hormones and neurotransmitters. Our bodies use L-Tryptophan to create melatonin and serotonin by using certain enzymes to modify it (including tryptophan hydroxylase and amino acid decarboxylase). In other words, our bodies have trouble getting enough serotonin and melatonin if we don’t have the right amount of tryptophan in our diets.
