    My ME problems with TRP seem to be in excess conversion to neurotoxic kynurenines in the brain. BCAAs can block, or at least delay and spread out the increase in symptom severity, so I'm pretty sure it's not a digestive system problem. Hopefully there won't be too many people with this neurological sensitivity to TRP and who also have IBD that would be helped by taking TRP.
