5-Hydroxytryptophan‚ or 5-HTP‚ is the direct precursor to serotonin‚ an important neurotransmitter that participates in the regulation of emotional moods‚ sleep/wake cycles‚ nerve thresholds‚ and appetite. Extracted from plant sources (Griffonia simplicifolia)‚ 5-HTP is a natural alternative to synthetic L-tryptophan‚ which is now available by prescription only. In addition to increasing serotonin levels‚ 5-HTP causes an increase in levels of endorphins and other neurotransmitters that may be low in some clinical situations. Serotonin is an important initiator of sleep‚ and 5-HTP has been studied for many positive benefits with sleeplessness. Research also suggests increased serotonin levels may promote early satiety for appetite regulation.
