5-htp (5-hydroxytryptophan) is a naturally-occurring precursor to the neurotransmitter, serotonin, a chemical which is responsible for controlling mood and hunger. The introduction of 5-htp is said to boost the production of serotonin. Increased levels of serotonin are associated with mood elevation, increased sexuality and effects on sleep. The chemical can be found in a number of foods, plants and even fungi, but it is found in extremely high levels in the large seeds of griffonia simplicifolia. It is from these seeds that the vast majority of 5-htp supplements are purified. It should not be used by people who have heart troubles or combined with anything else that has a significant impact on serotonin in the brain.
