5-Hydroxytryptophan is the immediate precursor of serotonin, which is a neurotransmitter regulating numerous important bodily functions, in particular brain and nerve function.
Approximately 70% of oral 5-HTP is converted to serotonin, compared with around 3% of L-tryptophan.
Serotonin may be converted in the body to melatonin, important in regulating the sleep-wake cycle.
5-HTP (5-hydroxytryptophan or 5-hydroxy-l-tryptophan) is a natural supplement that converts in the brain into serotonin.
Serotonin is an important brain chemical involved in mood, behaviour, appetite, and sleep.
Serotonin is known as 5-HTP, or 5-hydroxytryptamine, and is found in many places in the body particularly the brain, gastrointestinal system, and blood cells.
This information gleaned from Ray Sahelian, M.D.
"Some people who take 5-HTP notice improved mood, decrease in appetite, reduced anxiety, and better sleep. I have come across some individuals who get wired instead of sleepy when taking 5-HTP.
Some find that 5-HTP helps curb appetite and leads to weight loss. This nutrient could be used temporarily for appetite suppression while other lifestyle and dietary changes are being incorporated regarding a life long plan for keeping weight off. Not everyone notices the appetite suppressing effect from 5-HTP.
5-HTP may be temporarily helpful in conditions that normally require prescription antidepressants, anti-anxiety agents, sleeping pills, and weight loss drugs.
5-HTP may also be helpful in some individuals with migraine headaches and fibromyalgia.
5-HTP reduces the severity of a panic attack which may indicate that panic attacks may be due to low serotonin levels.
A study in rodents indicates that 5-HTP may be useful in controlling the excessive food intake sometimes generated by stress, even if given without decarboxylase inhibitors or other drugs."
