Lowell Metabolics 5-HTP is produced from the essential amino acid L-tryptophan. It plays an essential role in the production of serotonin, which is a neurotransmitter that is primarily found in the gastrointestinal tract. Serotonin can affect sleep, appetite, sexual behavior, and pain sensation. Since 5-HTP increases the synthesis of serotonin, it is used for several diseases where serotonin is believed to play an important role including depression, insomnia, obesity, and many other conditions. 5-HTP is mainly used for sleep disorders, depression, anxiety, migraines and other tension-type headaches. It is also shown to help with fibromyalgia, obesity, premenstrual syndrome (PMS), attention deficit-hyperactive disorder (ADHD), insomnia, seizure disorders and Parkinson's disease.
