  • 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

    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.

    Tryptophan improves sleep quality.

    I ordered 5 HTP because of sleep disorder. I read that it can help dealing with stress and can balance mood as well. I am hopeful that it will work this way. It is pricey but I decided to buy it because I like the brand.



      the price

    I would recommend this item to a friend.

    Recommended for depression GREAT for sl

    5 HTP was recommended by my doctor for depression but when I took it in the daytime it put me into a restful heavy sleep. It helps with depression but I strongly recommend this for those having sleep problems. I take it a half hour before bed. I purchased this in a natural form as I read that synthetics are not advised for this amino acid. Great quality in a veggie capsule.


      I am impressed with the quality and effects.


      There is nothing I dislike about this item.

    I would recommend this item to a friend.
