5-HTP is a naturally-occurring amino acid, precursor to serotonin, the neurotransmitter often touted for its role as a “happiness hormone”. 

Taking 5-HTP is a simple way to increase brain serotonin levels. 5-HTP, the intermediate metabolite between the amino acid L-tryptophan and serotonin, is extracted from the bean of an African plant (Griffonia simplicifolia).


Low levels of serotonin can affect sleep, appetite, sexual behavior. 5-HTP has been proven to reduce symptoms of low-mood, improve sleep and sometimes aid within a weight loss regimen.
