Vital Nutrients 5-HTP 50mg 60 caps, otherwise known as 5-hydroxytryptophan, is an amino acid that is the immediate precursor of serotonin, a brain neurotransmitter. During the biosynthesis of serotonin, tryptophan is hydroxylated to 5-HTP and then decarboxylated to serotonin. Serotonin plays a big role in sleep, emotional moods, pain control and inflammation. 5-HTP supplementation has been shown to improve mood, anxiety and insomnia. Depression has been linked to serotonin imbalances in the brain, thus researchers are hypothesizing that 5-HTP may increase serotonin synthesis and may be helpful for people with depression
