5-Hydroxytryptophan (5-HTP) is a naturally occurring amino acid, found as an intermediate metabolite in the biosynthesis of serotonin (5-hydroxytryptamine) from the essential amino acid L-tryptophan1. It is produced commercially from the seeds of Griffonia simplicifolia, a tropical shrub found in West Africa. Both L-tryptophan and 5-HTP help raise serotonin levels in the brain, which may have a positive effect on sleep, mood, anxiety, aggression, appetite control, temperature, sexual behavior and pain sensation5. 5-HTP is not commonly found in food, but the amino acid L-tryptophan can be found in such foods as turkey, chicken, milk, potato, turnips and collard greens.
