Dear Graham
Tryptophan is an essential amino acid which means we cannot manufacture it in our bodies and have to obtain it from our diet. Protein foods derived from animals are the best source of essential amino acids, including tryptophan. Thus meat, fish, eggs, milk, yoghurt, and cheese, are your best sources.
