5-hydroxytryptophan - a compound that is a direct precursor for Serotonin, a hormone with a very important function in the processes of regulating appetite, improving mood and optimizing the secretion of other hormones. Since Serotonin itself does not have the ability to cross the blood-brain barrier, an effective way to increase its levels is through supplementation with its precursors, among which the most effective is 5-hydroxytryptophan. Numerous studies show a direct link between 5-HTP administration and improved sleep, inhibition of hunger attacks, normalization of insulin, cortisol and prolactin levels or abolition of anxiety.
