5-HTP


           5-hydroxytryptophan (5-HTP) is a naturally occurring substance derived from the seed pods of Griffonia simplicifolia, a West African medicinal plant. It is the precursor and metabolic intermediate in the biosynthesis of the neurotransmitters serotonin and melatonin from tryptophan. 5-HTP is converted to the neurotransmitter serotonin (5-HT), with the help of vitamin B6.

          Widely used to help with obesity (dieting), PMS, migraines, depression, anxiety, insomnia and addictive behavior, 5 HTP increases production of serotonin. Serotonin levels in the nervous system are essential for so many aspects of our daily lives. Serotonin is responsible for feelings of wellbeing, satisfaction and for normal sleep patterns. Obesity, PMS, migraines, depression, anxiety, insomnia and addictive behavior have all been associated with low levels of serotonin. Serotonin plays an important role in controlling anger, aggression, body temperature, mood, sleep, human sexuality, appetite, and metabolism, as well as stimulating vomiting.
