5-Hydroxytryptophan (5HTP)


SKU: 5-hydroxytryptophan Categories: ,


5-Hydroxytryptophan, also known as oxitriptan and commonly referred to as 5HTP, is a naturally occurring amino acid and chemical precursor as well as a metabolic intermediate in the biosynthesis of the neurotransmitters serotonin and melatonin from tryptophan.

Although 5-HTP is only found in insignificant quantities in food, it is a chemical involved intermediately in the metabolism of tryptophan, an amino acid found in milk, meat, potatoes, pumpkin, and various greens.

The seeds of the Griffonia Simplicifolia, a climbing shrub native to West Africa and Central Africa, are used as a herbal supplement for their 5-hydroxytryptophan (5-HTP) content and this is the source of the 5HTP we have here.
