What is 5-HTP?
5-HTP (5-hydroxytryptophan) is a extracted from the seeds of the African Plant, Griffionia simplicifolia. 5-HTP is a metabolite of the amino acid tryptophan. It is a direct precursor of the important inhibitory neurotransmitter serotonin, which is secreted in response to mood or emotion swings.  5-HTP has been favorably compared to tricyclic antidepressants and Prozac for its ability to alleviate depression. 

What is Serotonin?
Serotonin is a major player in the regulation of mood and behaviour.  It also regulates appetite, the dilation of blood vessels and many other body processes
Serotonin soothes and calms and brings about feelings of contentment. Serotonin regulates mood, behaviour, appetite, dilation of blood vessels and many other body processes.  Serotonin is released in response to fullness and regulates appetite.  Deficiency of serotonin can lead to overeating and obesity.  This also accounts for the fact that when we are under stress our appetite tends to change.

Some people become deficient in serotonin and gain weight because they overeat.  Others lose their appetite partly because their brain is reacting to high levels of serotonin released during the stressful time.  Serotonin also decreases the diameter of blood vessels.  This is helpful in headaches and migraines that are caused by increased blood flow in the brain.

To enhance the body’s production of serotonin without taking serotonin itself there are several options.  Protein intake is important because it contains the amino acid tryptophan, a precursor to serotonin.  A supplement called 5-HTP is an activated form of tryptophan that can also be supplemented to help with the production of serotonin.  Vitamin B6, pyridoxine, acts in the cascade to produce serotonin, from tryptophan.  The absorption of B6 is improved if all of the B complex vitamins are taken along with it.

Supplementing with 5-HTP may benefit:
 Weight loss
 Insomnia
Depression
 Anxiety
 PMS
 Jet lag
 headaches/ migraines
 Fibromyalgia
 aging
 Alzheimer’s disease
