WHAT IS 5 HTP?
5-HTP (5-Hydroxy L-Tryptophan) is a compound that the body makes from the amino acid tryptophan and is a precursor to the neurotransmitter serotonin.
5-Hydroxytryptophan (5-HTP) is a naturally occurring amino acid as well as a metabolic intermediate in the biosynthesis of the neurotransmitters serotonin and melatonin from tryptophan. 5-HTP Powder has been used in a range of different applications and is well documented to have positive effects on appetite suppression, sleep quality, reduction of migraines, improvements to anxiety and mood.
More benefits of 5-HTP Powder include:
- 5-HTP may aid weight loss by promoting feelings of fullness: In one study, 20 people with diabetes were randomly assigned to receive either 5-HTP powder or a placebo for two weeks. The results showed that those who received 5-HTP consumed approximately 435 fewer calories per day, compared to the placebo group.
- 5-HTP may promote sleep by increasing melatonin production: 5-HTP produces serotonin, which can be converted into the hormone melatonin, which plays an important role in sleep. One human-based study showed that a combination of 5-HTP and gamma-aminobutyric acid (GABA) significantly reduced the time it took to fall asleep, increased sleep duration and improved sleep quality
