    More Info

    L-5-Hydroxytryptophan (5-HTP) is an intermediate neurotransmitter, converted from the essential amino acid L-tryptophan in the body, and converted to 5-hydroxytryptamine (serotonin) and N-acetyl-5-methoxytryptamine (melatonin). It is a key component in the complex chain of brain interactions that regulates our moods and sleeping patterns.* The neurotransmitter serotonin plays an important role in our affective states. Low levels of serotonin have been associated with carbohydrate cravings and weight gain, mood and sleep disorders, and substance dependence. Because 5-HTP readily crosses the blood-brain barrier and converts to serotonin, 5-HTP has undergone much research regarding serotonin metabolism, which indicates it can play a supportive role in normal bodily functions.*
