5-Hydroxytryptophan (5-HTP) is a natural precursor to the feel-good neurotransmitter, serotonin. Serotonin is essential in the regulation of endocrine (hormone) and brain activity responsible for emotion, appetite and sleep/wake cycles. Stress and gut imbalances deplete serotonin levels, leading to food cravings, depression, and other mood disorders. 5-HTP converts to serotonin, thereby replenishing your “happy” neurotransmitters naturally, and without the side-effects of pharmaceutical antidepressants.
