5-Hydroxytryptophan (5-HTP) is an amino acid that your body naturally produces.
Your body uses it to produce serotonin, a chemical messenger that sends signals between your nerve cells.
Low serotonin levels are associated with depression, anxiety, sleep disorders, weight gain and other health problems.
Therefore, increasing your body’s production of serotonin may have various benefits.
If you are already taking serotonin medication/anti depressants you shouldn’t take 5HTP unless you have had it approved by your doctor.
