5-HTP Benefits and Uses

 

Serotonin is a vital neurotransmitter and hormone with important functions in the human body. It is involved in the biosynthesis of both serotonin and melatonin from tryptophan. Anecdotally, 5-HTP may have similar effects to other mood-lifting supplements. Some people consider it a natural serotonin supplement because of its similarity to the neurotransmitter serotonin.
