L-tryptophan is an essential amino acid, which means that our body cannot produce it itself and that it must be supplied exogenously.
Tryptophan acts as a precursor of serotonin, a neurotransmitter involved in the regulation of mood, stress and rest.
It is involved in the formation of melatonin.
Magnesium helps to reduce fatigue and exhaustion.
