The Bali green banana is commonly given as additional food for babies and the elderly, because of its high nutritional value and safe for digestion. While Java pineapple which is familiar as “nanas madu” has a sweet taste and is rich in an active compound associated with mood. A previous study found that adult people with and without intermittent explosive disorder with lowered serotonin bioavailability tend to selfaggressive behavior. Tryptophan depletion causing low serotonin precursor is associated with aggressive behavior. Adequate intake of tryptophan sourced from fruits is needed for physiological mechanisms, especially in the serotonergic system. The efficacy of antioxidant content in Java pineapples (Ananas comosus L. Merr) combined with tryptophan compound in Bali green banana (Musa acuminata Colla) has the potential to suppress an aggressive behavior through the serotonergic system homeostasis mechanism. This study aimed to find the tryptophan compound in an extract of Bali green banana which is a combination with Java pineapple. Methods: tryptophan compounds in this simplicia extract were analyzed by the Highperformance liquid chromatography (HPLC) method. Result: the extract of Bali green banana Bali combined with Java pineapple showed the tryptophan content was 0.316 mg/100gr simplicia. Conclusion: an extract of Bali green banana combined with Java pineapple contains 0.316 percent tryptophan. This combination of compounds has the potential as a new combination of natural sources of suppressive self-aggressive behavior.
