5-Hydroxytryptophan (5-HTP or 5HTP) is an amino acid that is the intermediate step between tryptophan and the important brain chemical serotonin. Low serotonin levels are associated with depression and poor sleep quality. Serotone contains 5-HTP alone with specific co-factor B vitamins and zinc which assist with it's absorption. Not advisable if pregnant or taking fenfluramine. Care should also be taken if being prescribed SSRIs. Does not contain Valerian.
