5-HTP General Information
For decades Europeans have used 5-HTP, or 5-hydroxytryptophan, to treat insomnia and depression. The body produces its own supply of 5-HTP from tryptophan, an amino acid found in high-protein foods such as chicken, fish, beef, and dairy products. The supplement form is a compound extracted from the seeds of the African plant, Griffonia simplicifolia. 5-HTP is a mood enhancing chemical that raises serotonin levels which can increase pain tolerance, induce sleep, and affect how hunger is perceived. Serotonin is found in the brain and central nervous system which has many implications on mood, behavior, and sleep patterns.

5-HTP Uses & Scientific Evidence For
5-HTP is used to treat many disorders caused by low serotonin levels, such as depression, insomnia, anxiety, suicide, migraines, PMS, obsessive/compulsive behavior, stress, obesity, and addiction. L-tryptophan is close in chemical association to 5-HTP; however, L-tryptophan has been banned from the U. S. market over controversial issues of safety, whereas, 5-HTP has been deemed safe and effective because it is a natural way to treat these conditions.

5-HTP Dosage Information
To minimize possible side effects, begin with a low dose of 5-HTP (50 mg three times a day) for one week and then increase the amount to 50 mg twice a day for one week, and so on by 50 mg increments each week, up to the dose recommended for your condition. For the quickest absorption, take 5-HTP on an empty stomach. It is best to read product label directions for guidelines on the dosage recommended for your specific condition.

5-HTP Safety & Interaction Information
Known side effects are generally mild and may include, constipation, gas, nausea, drowsiness, or a decreased sex drive. Combining 5-HTP with conventional antidepressants, such as Prozac, Wellbutrin, or Effexor, may cause anxiety, confusion, increased heart rate, excessive perspiration, and diarrhea. Do not try 5-HTP within four weeks of using an MAO inhibitor. Safety in young children, pregnant or nursing women, or those with severe liver or kidney disease is not known.
