Were you looking for information about Tryptophan? Tryptophane is a common misspelling of tryptophan.
Tryptophan is a type of amino acid that must be obtained through dietary means, as the body does not produce this substance. This essential amino acid is found in many foods and is also available in the form of supplements. These supplements are claimed to be useful for treating a variety of conditions, such as depression, anxiety, premenstrual syndrome (PMS), and attention deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD). Because tryptophan supplements may not be suitable for everyone, make sure to talk to your healthcare provider about your medical history and any other medicines you are taking before using these supplements.
