What is 5-HTP?

5-HTP (5-Hydroxytryptophan) is an amino acid that is the intermediate step between tryptophan and the important brain chemical serotonin. The human body manufactures 5-HTP from L-tryptophan, a natural amino acid found in most dietary proteins.

What does 5-HTP do?

Supplementing with 5-HTP may support serotonin synthesis.* Having adequate levels of serotonin instills a feeling of relaxation and calmness.

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 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 support a healthy mood.* Tryptophan 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.

5-HTP appears to be well tolerated with few and relatively mild side effects, the most common being nausea. However, large doses of 5-HTP should be avoided as it can result in the formation of excessively high levels of serotonin in tissues other than the brain, resulting in significant adverse reactions.

As always, consult your physician before taking supplements, especially if you have a medical or psychiatric condition, or are pregnant or lactating.

I bought another brand to save $4 earlier this year. What a waste. It won't happen again. Supplement Spot's 5HTP is the real deal.

Your 5-htp has been great. It's really kept me even keeled. The extra cost compared to my old product has been well worth it. The delivery was crazy fast. I do need to mention that I only take it in the morning. When I take it at night, my dreams are so vivid that I wake up. I guess I know that I'm getting what I paid for.

Thanks to 5-HTP I am able to work and have more or less my life back again. I’ve been using 5-HTP since September 1993. As a performing artist, I couldn’t do without it. So due to 5-HTP, I started a new carrier as a therapist and teacher in complementary medicine as well. Thank you Supplement Spot!

I use 5htp every day - I don't know how I would survive without it - it is the most effective supplement I have ever taken for mood elevation and helps with sleep too.

I have been ordering 5-HTP on few occasions and actually must order some more again. I start with 200mg in the morning and afternoon and then increase the does to 300mg twice a day. It is a brilliant appetite suppressant and I am simply not hungry during the day and hardly in the evening despite my vigorous astanga yoga practice. As it increases the production of serotonin I actually feel much more peaceful and calm. There is nothing that can make me upset or angry when the serotonin is elevated. The strange thing is that even when I ran out of the stock the effects last for a week or so. I have tried other brands but in my experience your product is very pure and effective. I shall be making an order in the coming days.

Thank you and warm regards,
jatta
