Supplementation with 5-HTP may encourage brain serotonin levels that can result into positive effects on a person's emotional well-being, appetite control, and sleep/wake cycles. 5-Hydroxytryptophan (5-HTP) can be utilized as an intermediate as part of the natural synthesis of L-tryptophan (an essential amino acid) to serotonin.

In clinical studies, administration of 5-HTP has been shown to increase serotonin levels. The enzyme tryptophan hydroxylase adds a hydroxyl group (OH) to tryptophan, forming the 5-HTP intermediate. In the body, 5-HTP converts to serotonin with the removal of a carboxyl group (COOH) by a second enzyme. The 5-HTP supplied in Pure Encapsulations' 5-HTP dietary supplement is derived from the Griffonia simplicifolia plant. Serotonin is known as an important neurotransmitter involved in the regulation of endocrine & brain activity responsible for healthy emotions, appetite and wake/sleep/wake cycles.
