Product Details

5-HTP

5-HTP is a naturally occurring amino acid, found as an intermediate metabolite in the biosynthesis of serotonin (5-hydroxytryptamine) from the essential amino acid L-tryptophan. It is produced commercially from the seeds of Griffonia simplicifolia, a tropical shrub found in West Africa. Both L-tryptophan and 5-HTP help raise serotonin levels in the brain, which may have a positive effect on sleep, mood, anxiety, aggression, appetite control, temperature, sexual behavior and pain sensation. 5-HTP is not commonly found in food, but the amino acid L-tryptophan can be found in such foods as turkey, chicken, milk, potato, turnips and collard greens.

Serotonin is involved in a variety of physiological processes, including smooth muscle contraction, blood pressure regulation, and both peripheral and central nervous system neurotransmission. In the central nervous system, it acts as a neurotransmitter. It is synthesized from tryptophan in the brain, spinal cord, GI tract, bronchi, thyroid, pancreas and thymus. The serotonin circulating in our blood vessels does not normally enter the brain, as it cannot cross an intact blood-brain barrier, so must be made in the brain from 5-HTP or tryptophan.
