  • DESCRIPTION

5-HTP, the intermediate metabolite between the amino acid L-tryptophan and serotonin, is extracted from the seed of an African plant (Griffonia simplicifolia). 5-HTP readily crosses the blood-brain barrier and increases central nervous system (CNS) synthesis of serotonin. Serotonin can affect sleep, appetite, temperature, sexual behaviour, and pain sensation. Serotonin also has a significant role in depression, anxiety, and aggression. 5-HTP is one of the few approved natural therapies for fibromyalgia with the possibility of reducing pain severity, morning stiffness, and sleeplessness. 5-HTP has been shown to increase neurotransmitting catecholamines such as dopamine and norepinephrine that are synthesized from tyrosine.
