5-Hydroxytryptophan (5-HTP) is the intermediate metabolite the body produces when it initiates the process of converting the essential amino acid L-tryptophan to serotonin.

Numerous studies of individuals with negative mood status have shown significant positive response with 50-300 mg of 5-HTP daily.

  1. Supplementation with 5-HTP will bypass the conversion of L-tryptophan into 5-HTP by the enzyme tryptophan hydroxylase.
  2. 5-HTP is well absorbed when taken orally, with about 70 percent going into the bloodstream.
  3. Absorption is not affected by the presence of other amino acids; therefore, 5-HTP can be taken with meals without reducing its effectiveness.
  4. 5-HTP has been shown to have a beneficial impact on mood, sleep, carbohydrate cravings, and discomfort associated with fatigue.

INTERACTIONS/CONTRAINDICATIONS
5-Hydroxytryptophan should be used with caution in an individual currently being treated with an SSRI, MAO inhibitor, or other antidepressant medication.
