Description: 5-hydroxytryptophan (5-htp) is an amino acid that is the intermediate step between tryptophan and the important brain chemical serotonin.
5-htp (the common name for the compound 5-hydroxytryptophan) is a derivative of the amino acid tryptophan. A mood-enhancing chemical, 5-htp has attracted a good deal of attention lately because of its ability to increase pain tolerance, induce sleep, and affect how hunger is perceived. Unlike many other supplements (and drugs) that have molecules too large to pass from the bloodstream into the brain, molecules of 5-htp are small enough to do so.
