5-HTP (a.k.a. 5-hydroxytryptophan) is an amino acid that the body naturally produces. Most importantly the body uses 5-HTP to produce serotonin. Unfortunately, low serotonin levels can mean weight gain, mood issues, and poor sleep, among other health concerns. Many people have turned to 5-HTP supplements to help balance their serotonin levels. 5-HTP is manufactured from the seeds of an African plant, Griffonia simplicifolia. The supplements have become popular because it is thought that providing the body with 5-HTP in pill form can boost the body's serotonin levels, similar to the antidepressants that are thought to increase the amount of serotonin available to the brain.
In alternative medicine, 5-HTP supplements are purported to help in the treatment of conditions including:
- Boosts mood
- Controls appetite
- Supports weight loss

- Hot flashes
- Weight Loss
