5-Hydroxytryptophan (5-HTP) is the immediate precursor in the biosynthesis of the neurotransmitter 5-hydroxytryptamine (5 HT or serotonin). 5-HT is synthesized from the amino acid L-tryptophan. 5-HTP has replaced the use of L-tryptophan in the United States. In 1989 patients taking L-tryptophan developed a negative and debilitating reaction called eosinophilia-myalgia syndrome. Upon further study it was determined that the culprit was not the L-tryptophan but a bacterial contaminate in the formula. All L-tryptophan products associated with the syndrome were found to come from genetically modified bacterial recombinant production methods. Even though L- tryptophan was proven to be safe, it never recovered from this incident. 5-HTP was created to fill the gap created by the removal of L-tryptophan from the marketplace.
