5-HTP is an amino acid that our body produces from tryptophan, another amino acid found in protein foods (meat, poultry, fish, dairy products, legumes and nuts). Once absorbed, 5-HTP crosses the blood-brain barrier and transforms in the brain into serotonin, a neurotransmitter that plays a vital role in regulating mood, anxiety, appetite and sleep. .
