We have heard about tryptophan. It is an amino acid that helps our brains to produce serotonin which helps us to relax and sleep.
Now, it would seem, researchers from McGill University in Canada have discovered that tryptophan also increases self esteem and helps people feel more confident in social situations. This is a great benefit for those of us who are plagued with shyness and anxiety. It just might be worth a try!
Tryptophan is naturally found in milk, cheese, nuts, chicken, and turkey. It can also be found in supplement form.
