5-HTP (5-hydroxytryptophan) is a metabolite of the amino acid tryptophan. Tryptophan is the agent in turkey that makes you feel like taking a nap after Thanksgiving dinner. 5-HTP is a direct precursor of the important inhibitory neurotransmitter serotonin, which is secreted in response to mood or emotional swings. Serotonin soothes and calms and brings about feelings of contentment. Griffonia simplicifolia is an African plant which is extracted to produce 5-HTP, the intermediate metabolite between the amino acid L-tryptophan and serotonin.
