5-HTP (5-hydroxytryptophan) is a naturally occurring amino acid that is produced from the essential amino acid tryptophan during the process of serotonin synthesis. 5-HTP is the immediate biochemical precursor of serotonin, a calming neurotransmitter associated with feelings of satisfaction, relaxation and general wellbeing.
Serotonin depletion is common in people with chronic stress and an inflamed physiology. Stress and inflammation divert tryptophan down an alternate pathway (known as the kynurenine pathway) which does not make 5-HTP, and produces kynurenine instead of serotonin as an end product. To drive the serotonin pathway, 5-HTP, the critical intermediary in serotonin synthesis, must be created or supplied.
