Tryptophan is an essential amino acid that the body cannot produce itself and should be supplied with a diet. It is responsible for the proper functioning of the nervous system, and its deficiencies cause energy loss, inferiority, and even depression. Tryptophan can also be helpful in weight loss - it helps control appetite for carbohydrates. Tryptophan is converted in the brain to serotonin, a neurotransmitter called the "hormone of happiness". Without the right amount of precursor, tryptophan, there is a shortage of serotonin in the body, which is manifested by mood swings, anxiety, insomnia, aggressiveness, increased sensitivity to pain, and finally depressive disorders. Serotonin is also responsible for impulsive behavior, sexual needs and regulating appetite.
