5-HTP, the intermediate metabolite between the amino acid L-tryptophan and serotonin, is extracted from the seed of an African plant (Griffonia simplicifolia).* 5-HTP readily crosses the blood-brain barrier and increases central nervous system (CNS) synthesis of serotonin.* Serotonin can affect sleep, appetite, temperature, sexual behaviour, and pain sensation.* Serotonin also has a significant role in depression, anxiety, and aggression.* 5-HTP is one of the few approved natural therapies for fibromyalgia with the possibility of reducing pain severity, morning stiffness, and sleeplessness.* 5-HTP may increase neurotransmitting catecholamines such as dopamine and norepinephrine that are synthesized from tyrosine.* There is speculation that increasing the availability of tyrosine to the brain allows increased neurotransmitter synthesis, which helps to counter the negative effects of stress.* The addition of B-vitamins to this formula provides additional synergistic effects as they enhance the metabolism of amino acids.*
