What are the benefits of 5HTP?
5-HTP is a chemical byproduct of the protein building block L-tryptophan. It’s produced commercially from the seeds of an African plant known as Griffonia simplicifolia. 5-HTP works in the brain and central nervous system by increasing the production of the chemical serotonin.
Serotonin can affect mood, sleep, appetite, temperature, sexual behaviour, and pain sensation.
You can’t get 5-HTP from food. The amino acid tryptophan, which the body uses to make 5-HTP, can be found in turkey, chicken, milk, potatoes, pumpkin, sunflower seeds, turnip and collard greens, and seaweed.

Benefits of 5HTP
So what can 5HTP be used for? And what are the benefits of 5HTP? In brief, 5HTP is a chemical precursor to serotonin, a neurotransmitter responsible for mood and happiness. Research has shown that taking 5HTP supplements can increase serotonin levels in the brain. While all the benefits of 5HTP are unknown, many people take it to help regulate their weight and mood. Some believe that it will help them lose weight and maintain a healthy body weight.
However, it is important to realise the precautions…
Precautions and Contraindications:
- Carbidopa (Lodosyn): Taking 5-HTP along with carbidopa can increase the risk of serious side effects including rapid speech, anxiety, aggressiveness, and others.
- Sedative medications (CNS depressants): Taking 5-HTP with sedative medications might cause breathing problems and/or too much sleepiness.
- Serotonergic drugs: Taking 5-HTP along with these medications might increase serotonin too much. This might cause serious side effects including heart problems, seizures, and vomiting.
