What is 5-HTP?
5-HTP (5-Hydroxytryptophan) is a by-product of l-tryptophan, an essential amino acid found in foods like turkey, eggs, spirulina, nuts, and whole grains. This extract is taken from the seeds of the Griffonia plant, a shrub native to Central and Western Africa.
How to Take 5-HTP
As a dietary supplement, take 50 mg to 200 mg daily with food, or as directed by physician.
Note: 5-HTP affects serotonin, a neurotransmitter that regulates mood and behavior. Talk to your doctor before taking this supplement if you take any medications for mood disorders or medications that affect serotonin levels.
Benefits of 5-HTP
5-HTP may help reduce appetite.* Many who supplement with 5-HTP report feeling fuller sooner after eating, causing them to eat less.
Supplementing with 5-HTP may improve the quality of sleep and reduce the amount of time it takes to fall asleep.* Participants in several studies also reported feeling less fatigued during the day after taking 5-HTP.*
Because of its involvement with serotonin, 5-HTP may improve mood and feelings of overall wellness.* Talk to your doctor before taking 5-HTP, especially if you are already taking medications for a mood-related disorder.
