Benefits of 5-HTP
Good to know
Serotonin can’t be sourced from food, but you can source another amino acid from food called tryptophan, which converts to serotonin in our brains. Salmon and turkey are rich sources of tryptophan. However, tryptophan is tricky for our brains to absorb, so research suggests that consuming salmon or turkey with a serving of carbohydrate can help the tryptophan reach our brains more effectively.
5-Hydroxytryptophan, which goes by the nickname 5-HTP, is an amino acid that our body uses to produce serotonin. Serotonin, often dubbed ‘the happy chemical’, is considered a natural mood stabilizer and maintaining healthy levels of serotonin can help us avoid health problems like depression and anxiety.
Serotonin isn’t just a one-trick pony though, it can also be converted by the body into the sleep-regulating hormone melatonin. Melatonin levels rise in the evening to help us fall asleep and then fall again in the morning to help us wake-up, so supplementing serotonin can help us fall asleep more easily and help us wake-up without that groggy feeling. When we’ve had a great night’s sleep, we also naturally feel more refreshed, less irritable and ready to take on the day, so taking 5-HTP is twice as nice when it comes to boosting your mood and improving your sleep quality.
