5-Hydroxytryptophan or 5-HTP is a naturally-occurring amino acid, a precursor to the neurotransmitter serotonin & an intermediate in tryptophan metabolism. The body produces 5-HTP from tryptophan, an amino acid found in small amounts in high-protein foods such as chicken, fish, beef and dairy products. 5-HTP is believed to help increase serotonin production in the brain, which may positively influence mood, sleep and appetite. 5-HTP may also help with other health issues related to serotonin deficiency.

 

 

5HTP is also produced commercially from the seeds of an African plant known as Griffonia simplicifolia. 5-HTP is used to increase serotonin levels to improve mood and sleep.

5-HTP works in the brain and central nervous system by increasing the production of the chemical serotonin. Serotonin can affect sleep, appetite, temperature, sexual behavior, and pain sensation. Since 5-HTP increases the synthesis of serotonin, it is used for several diseases where serotonin is believed to play an important role including depression, insomnia, obesity, and many other conditions.
