5-HTP is a me­tab­o­lite of the es­sen­tial amino acid L-tryp­to­phan, a com­po­nent of pro­tein. Our bod­ies con­vert some di­etary tryp­to­phan into 5-HTP (5-hy­drox­ytryp­to­phan), for use in sero­tonin syn­the­sis. The Mayo Clinic calls sero­tonin “a chem­i­cal your body pro­duces that’s needed for your nerve cells and brain to func­tion,” and sero­tonin also gen­er­ates an­other well-known sub­stance called mela­tonin, which the body pro­duces at night to en­able proper sleep cy­cles. 5-HTP not only helps us re­lax all day and sleep overnight, but also helps the body turn off un­nec­es­sary pro­cesses while sleep­ing to al­low rou­tine main­te­nance and re­pairs. The healthy sero­tonin and mela­tonin lev­els that 5-HTP sup­ports can ap­pro­pri­ately cy­cle down nor­mal day­time bod­ily func­tions overnight, in­clud­ing adrenal stress hor­mones and stom­ach acid pro­duc­tion. NOW per­forms ex­ten­sive an­a­lyt­i­cal test­ing to as­sure our food-de­rived 5-HTP’s pu­rity, qual­ity, and safety.
