5-HTP (5-Hydroxytryptophan) has been studied for its role as a metabolic precursor or building block for serotonin (an important neurotransmitter believed to help regulate mood, sleep, and pain sensation), and for its potential role as a weight loss aid and appetite suppressant, fibromyalgia, depression, and chronic headaches, among others. 5-HTP is important for the production of melatonin, which is a natural hormone your body secretes to help maintain your body’s sleep/wake cycle. 5-HTP may support weight loss by decreasing appetite.
