L-Tryptophan is a precursor of several compounds. It is transformed in our body to serotonin and can from there be transformed in several steps to melatonin (a neuro-hormone).

Tryptophan is also used by our body to make niacin (vitamin B3). Niacin is important for the health of our skin and digestive and nervous systems. It is also known to increase the “good-type” or HDL cholesterol.
