The problem is that Tryptophan alone is almost impossible to buy. There are some web sites that offer it for 80$ outside US, but that's way too high. For me even 5HTP is highly priced that's why I stopped taking it. What I thought is that tryptophan naturally occurs in these amino mixes (check out Vege Fuel from Twinlabs for example) they do not add it, it just naturally occurs from other aminos (I think?). I do not expect some big results from it being taken with other aminos, it's just to have complete set of all aminos (as I said I drink milk and eat meat rarely).
