5-HTP supports serotonin levels in the brain. 5-HTP is a natural metabolite of the essential amino acid tryptophan and functions as a precursor for serotonin.

How does it work?

In the body, 5-HTP is formed from tryptophan by the addition of an -OH group, which gives 5-HTP its antioxidant properties. Whereas tryptophan may be sidetracked into the production of niacin or protein, 5-HTP readily crosses the blood-brain barrier and becomes available for serotonin synthesis. Therefore, supplementation with 5-HTP is a more direct route to serotonin production.*
