The experiment observed the utilization of TRP (tryptophan) in patients with depression, and found that the utilization of L-TRP in patients with major depression was significantly lower than that in patients with mild depression.

2. Central analgesia

TRP may exert a central analgesic effect by increasing the content of 5-hydroxytryptamine (5-HT) in the central nervous system. After the 5-HT descending fibers in the brain reach the spinal cord, they can be mediated by interneurons to activate enkephalin neurons in the posterior keratinocytes, and the latter can inhibit the transmission of peripheral pain information to the second level by means of presynaptic inhibition.
