Tryptophan is involved in the synthesis of serotonin and melatonin, and it competes with the other large neutral aminoacids for uptake into the brain. The aim of this study was to assess the impact of meal composition on the plasma ratio between tryptophan and five other large neutral amino acids (5LNAAs): isoleucine, leucine, valine, tyrosine and phenylalanine.

Abstract

Tryptophan is involved in the synthesis of serotonin and melatonin, and it competes with the other large neutral aminoacids for uptake into the brain.
