5-HTP, also known as 5-hydroxytryptophan, is the amino acid derivative of L-tryptophan that is the direct precursor for serotonin, a brain neurotransmitter.

During the production of serotonin, tryptophan is made into 5-HTP, and then made into serotonin. Serotonin plays an important role in sleep, mood, and appetite. It is also necessary for the production of melatonin, the main hormone responsible for the management of sleep.

Supplementing with 5-HTP has been shown to help improve mood and may reduce occasional sleeplessness.
