What is 5-HTP (5-Hydroxytryptophan)? 

5-HTP is a naturally occurring amino acid and a precursor to serotonin. Serotonin is the key neurotransmitter for stabilizing mood and  happiness while also playing a crucial role in sleep and digestion. 

5-HTP (5-Hydroxytryptophan) is extracted and isolated from griffonia simplicifolia seeds, which are the most abundant source of naturally occurring 5-HTP in the world.

5-HTP is an intermediary step between tryptophan and serotonin. Unlike Tryptophan, 5-HTP does not require a transport molecule to be converted to serotonin in the brain. This makes it more effective at crossing the blood-brain barrier, and therefore results in a more efficient conversion to serotonin when compared with tryptophan.
