Humans have the ability to produce it spontaneously from L-tryptophan, an amino acid found in protein-containing products, although consumption of this amino acid does not ensure a steady increase of 5-HTP in the body.
In practice, 5-hydroxytryptophan plays the role of a precursor of serotonin (5 HTP), which converts - provides an increase in the level of this very important hormone - a neurotransmitter that has a huge function in many human functions. Taken orally, 5-HTP quickly enters the bloodstream, and its absorption rate is over 70%. In a short time it overcomes the "blood-brain" barrier and begins its action. It is worth mentioning that the range of its applications is huge.
