Serotonin (5-HT) is a neurotransmitter synthesizedcentrally from derivatives of the essential amino acid, tryptophan.5-hydroxytryptophan (5-HTP) is created in the body via tryptophan hydroxylase,which is subsequently decarboxylated to serotonin (5-HT). 5-HTP is readily absorbedwhen taken orally and crosses the blood-brain barrier to increase the central nervoussystem (CNS) synthesis of serotonin. Serotonin can affect sleep, appetite, temperature,sexual behaviour, and pain sensation. Since 5-HTP can increase synthesis of serotonin, 5-HTP is used for several disease states where serotonin is believed to play asignificant role including headaches, obesity, mood disorders and numerous otherconditions. 5-HTP is one of the few approved natural therapies for fibromyalgia with
the possibility of reducing pain severity, morning stiffness, and sleeplessness.
