What is 5-HTP?
5-HTP, otherwise known as 5-Hydroxytryptophan, is a compound which plays a role in the creation of neurotransmitters. 5-HTP increases the production level of these neurotransmitters which claim to regulate appetite, concentration, brain activity and sleep patterns.
Benefits of 5-HTP
As well as the aforementioned traditional properties, 5-HTP is commonly used to regulate appetite, concentration, brain activity and sleep patterns. The supplement is often used by those with sleep disturbances or pain throughout the body. You may wish to supplement your diet with 5-HTP as the compound can only be acquired through the conversion of Tryptophan, an amino acid that is found in soy products, red meat, poultry, fish, oat bran, cheese and dark chocolate.

I bought this powder as a gift for my brother who has suffered from terrible insomnia and anxiety issues for 8-10 years now. He's been using it every night for the last month and noticing a considerable improvement in his sleep patterns and especially in the quality of the sleep he does manage to get! He certainly seems better rested and more calm. Thank you!
