Tryptophan for Anxiety and Depression

Tryptophan (L-tryptophan) is one of the essential amino acids that the body needs. It is responsible for raising seratonin levels in the brain.

Seratonin is a neurotransmitter in the brain that helps regulate appetite, sleep and mood.

When the body is depleted of trytophan, seratonin levels are low and symptoms can present themselves as weight problems, irritability, impulsivity, anxiety, depression, carbohydrate cravings and even insomnia.
