INDICATIONS5-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. Once in the brain, they're converted into
an important nervous system chemical, or neurotransmitter,
called serotonin. In 1994, 5-HTP was introduced in the
U.S.; 5-HTP is thought to pose significantly less risk of
contamination than L-tryptophan. Europeans have been taking
5-HTP for decades to treat insomnia and depression.
