L-Tryptophan is an essential amino acid that is converted into 5-HTP in the body.
The amino acid L-5-Hydroxytryptophan (5-HTP) is created from L-Tryptophan in the body and is a precursor to serotonin and melatonin. Seratonin is a brain chemical associated with sleep, mood, movement, feeding and nervousness. Our 5-HTP is derived from a plant source, and is carefully tested to ensure its purity and to guarantee the absence of contaminants.
