Used to help increase serotonin levels in the brain.
5-HTP (5-hydroxytryptophan) is an amino acid derived from the seeds of Griffonia simplicifolia. It plays an important role in the production of serotonin. 5-HTP is the precursor to serotonin from tryptophan.
Serotonin is a neurotransmitter (a chemical that sends a message from one nerve to another) known to play a major role in mood. Serotonin taken orally does not cross the blood-brain barrier; however, 5-HTP crosses the blood-brain barrier and increases the central nervous system synthesis of serotonin.
Low levels of serotonin have been associated with mood disorders. Studies have shown that depriving the brain of tryptophan, thereby decreasing serotonin synthesis, can induce mood disorders within hours.
Similarly, those with mood disorders have been found to have significantly lower tryptophan levels than their controls. 5-HTP has been used for many years to support those with mood disorders. It has also been used to support other health concerns such as headaches and sleeping difficulties.
