L-Tryptophan is an essential amino acid that acts as a natural mood regulator, since it has the ability to help the body produce and balance certain hormones naturally.

Supplementing with tryptophan-rich foods or taking supplements helps bring on natural calming effects, improves mood, reduces anxiety, induces sleep, has positive effects on cholesterol levels, decreases inflammatory responses and is even known to improve one’s body mass index. Additionally, L-Tryptophan has also been found to stimulate the release of growth hormones and even reduce food cravings for carbohydrates and help kick a sugar addiction in some cases.
