Overview
The nutritional supplement 5-HTP (common name for the compound 5-hydroxytryptophan) is a derivative of the amino acid tryptophan. Tryptophan is converted to 5-HTP in the human body; once it is converted to 5-HTP it can then be converted to serotonin, which is a potent neurotransmitter in the brain. In addition, 5-HTP is the precursor for melatonin, a hormone that is involved in the sleep patterns of the human body. Because 5-HTP is related to melatonin and serotonin, it may help promote a healthy mood and may be beneficial to the treatment of insomnia as well. Trytophan is found in a variety of protein foods, such as beef, fish, chicken and dairy products; however, no significant amount of 5-HTP can be found in any foods. Supplemental 5-HTP is derived from the seeds of Griffonia simplicifolia, an African plant.

Our 5-HTP 50mg is available in 90 count vegetarian capsules.
