What is 5-HTP (5 hydroxy tryptophan)?
The non-proteinogenic α-amino acid 5-HTP (5-hydroxytryptophan) is a dietary supplement that can help you fall asleep easily and relieve the symptoms of insomnia.
5-HTP is a natural compound that the brain converts to serotonin and melatonin – two neurotransmitters that are responsible for regulating sleep patterns. Higher levels of these neurotransmitters are associated with improved sleep ability and more restful, deeper sleep throughout the night.
This post is about the health benefits of using 5-HTP for sleep disorders and insomnia, as well as possible side effects that result from taking it.
The effect of 5-HTP (5 hydroxytryptophan): increase in serotonin and melatonin levels
5-HTP is a natural chemical precursor in the human body that it derives from tryptophan, an amino acid that is found in foods such as turkey, red meat, soy protein, eggs, spinach and fish.
Tryptophan is processed into 5-HTP in the liver. Then it is processed in the brain to become a neurotransmitter serotonin. Serotonin, in turn, can then be converted into melatonin, a hormone directly related to initiating sleep. Studies have found that 5-HTP can extend the important REM phase by 25%, just as it extends the deep sleep period without requiring more sleep.
As a dietary supplement, 5-HTP is typically obtained from the African perennial Griffonia simplicifolia. The seeds of this plant, calculated on the total weight, contain 5 to 20% pure 5-HTP. Therefore, when buying, you should note that the consumption quantities indicated on the respective product refer to the actual 5-HTP content and not to the entire Griffonia extract. In this way, the dosage can be designed so that there is a significant increase in the serotonin or melatonin level.
