Tryptophan is alpha-aminoacid that is used in the biosynthesis of proteins. It is essential aminoacid in humans, meaning the body cannot synthesize and it must be obtained from the diet. Tryptophan is a precursor of serotonin, and as such is sold over the counter in many countries as a dietary supplement for use as an antidepressant, anxiolytic and sleep aid, however application of tryptophan in these indications is not approved by FDA.   NCATS
