What Is It?
5-Hydroxytryptophan (5-HTP) is an intermediate in the natural synthesis of the essential amino acid, tryptophan, to serotonin. Clinical studies suggest that 5-HTP supports healthy serotonin levels. In the body, 5-HTP converts to serotonin. Serotonin is an important neurotransmitter involved in the regulation of endocrine and brainactivity responsible for emotion, appetite and sleep/wake cycles.
Uses For 5-HTP
