L Tryptophan is one kind of amino acid (building blocks for forming muscles and other parts of human body) that is digested and used by the brain.  The brain turns the L Tryptophan into serotonin, a neurotransmitter that controls our “feelings” such as depression, hunger, thirst, sleep and other "moods."

However, serotonin is mostly linked to depression.  By increasing the levels of Tryptophan in our bodies, serotonin will be produced and the end result will be a natural way of keeping depression at bay.
