  3. Courtesy of Wiki:

    In February 2001 the FDA loosened the restrictions on marketing (though not on importation), but still expressed the following concern:

    "Based on the scientific evidence that is available at the present time, we cannot determine with certainty that the occurrence of EMS in susceptible persons consuming L-tryptophan supplements derives from the content of L-tryptophan, an impurity contained in the L-tryptophan, or a combination of the two in association with other, as yet unknown, external factors."

    You can buy it now but it's pretty damn expensive when compared to turkey or 5-htp. Many use it to boost brain seratonin levels.
