5-HTP (5-hydroxytryptophan) is a derivative of tryptophan, an essential amino acid. Tryptophan in our foods is converted to 5-HTP in the body, which can then be converted directly into serotonin. Serotonin is believed to have a significant role in mood, sleep and appetite.
It's a good choice for someone who wants a product containing just 5-HTP without any additional vitamins or minerals - for example, those who are already taking a multivitamin and mineral.
