Trypto is an animated series that uses microscopic technology to teach children how their bodies work.

The beautiful animation tells the story of the adventures of an amino acid, Trypto and his friends Lysine and Aspartate, as they explore the internal landscapes of the human body. Together with 8 year old Alex they discover the functions and complex challenges the body faces every day to stay healthy and how we can actively take care of it.

At the heart of this fun animation series is real science. Inspired by the highly successful children’s medical stories, Tryptophanito, A Journey Through The Human Body by Dr. Julio Frenk, this series takes children aged 6 to 12 on a fantastic voyage deep into their organs, tissues, and cells.

Together we will venture into the most unexplored parts of our world – let’s travel through planet you!
