    Question tryptophan

    Does anyone know if tryptophan increases estrogen? I don't want to take any supplements that increase estrogen.

    Dear Juby,

    One of Tryptophan's side effects is impaired liver function, which is not related to estrogen. It does not increase estrogen. A short-term study demonstrated that a small dose of L-tryptophan caused liver damage in animals.

    Why would you want to take that substance?
