Many people found tryptophan to be a safe and reasonably effective sleep aid, probably due to its ability to increase brainlevels of serotonin(a calming neurotransmitterwhen present in moderate levels) and/or melatonin(a sleep-inducing hormonesecreted by the pineal glandin response to darkness or low light levels). Clinical research tended to confirm tryptophan's effectiveness as a natural sleep aid and for a growing variety of other conditions typically associated with low serotonin levels or activity in the brain.
