L-tryptophan is an essential amino acid, meaning it cannot be synthesized by the body and must be obtained through dietary sources. It is found in various protein-rich foods such as poultry, meat, dairy products, eggs, and certain plant-based sources like soybeans and pumpkin seeds. L-tryptophan plays a crucial role in the production of serotonin, a neurotransmitter that regulates mood, appetite, and sleep. It serves as a precursor to serotonin, which is further converted into melatonin, a hormone that regulates sleep-wake cycles. L-tryptophan may help support relaxation, encourage a positive mood, control appetite, promote better sleep quality and regulate sleep patterns, and reduce anxiety and stress.
