Quick Overview

5-HTP (5-Hydroxytryptophan) is a compound derived from tryptophan. It is an essential amino acid and it works for the production of serotonin, a neurotransmitter involved in sleep/awake rhythm, appetite regulation, mood regulation and, more generally, the well-being of the body.  
Content: 38g = 60 VegeCaps each with 100mg of 5-HTP.

5-HTP – the direct precursor of serotonin
Humor, sleep, appetite and sexual behavior are to varying degrees dependent on 5-HTP. 5-HTP is extracted from Griffonia simplicifolia (called "black African bean"); it has been used for over 30 years as a medicine, to increase serotonin production and thus to improve sleep, humor and well-being, as well as the effect of other related neurotransmitters.

It seems that 5-HTP present in the body has several roles including:

  • Antidepressant activity
  • To contrast insomnia
  • Improving the quality of sleep
  • Controlling excessive appetite (especially carbohydrates and sweets)

According to studies, some chronic fibromyalgia patients have claimed that "5-HTP has helped them relieve symptoms of fibromyalgia (anxiety, pain, insomnia)".

The active ingredient of this amino acid is also similar to that of a medicine in use to counteract chronic migraine. However, despite the encouraging results of the various studies carried out so far, the therapeutic use of 5-hydroxytryptophan has not been officially approved and therefore it is into the category 'food supplements'.

5-HTP is capable of crossing the blood-brain barrier and increasing central serotonin levels. Its use may be useful in all situations where there is an alteration of the normal concentration of this neurotransmitter.
