Did you know? Enjoy pasta – carbohydrates also increase your serotonin levels, which help you to feel better and manage your appetite.
Tips: Taking tryptophan off the spoon followed by coconut water or juice is a great way to absorb tryptophan, as it has low solubility in water.
Warm water (up to 30°C) will aid solubility; higher temperatures may degrade the product.
