What is 5-HTP?
5-HTP, or 5-hydroxy-tryptophan, is a natural chemical found in seeds from an African plant called Griffonia Simplicifolia, which has been used to treat a variety of ailments in traditional medicine for centuries.
5-HTP is the hydroxylated version of an amino acid called Tryptophan, both of which are required for your body to produce serotonin: an important hormone in the brain. Increasing a subject's dietary intake of 5-HTP through supplementation has been shown to increase serotonin levels in the brain.
Serotonin, known as the 'happy hormone', is an essential neurotransmitter responsible for mood control. It is also the precursor your body requires in order to produce melatonin: the 'sleep' hormone. Increasing Serotonin levels is associated with alleviating symptoms from certain conditions and disorders such as PMS, depression, anxiety & insomnia.
Has the effectiveness of 5-HTP been proven?
The first use of 5-HTP in modern medicine was as a natural alternative for the treatment of psychological disorders, primarily as an anti-depressent. Now, it is available as a natural health supplement and, although no large-scale studies have been carried out, there are a number of clinical trials indicating that 5-HTP can be used as part of an effective treatment against depression, in some instances out-perfoming prescription anti-depressents playing the same role.
Even fewer studies have been carried out on 5-htp with regards to treating insomnia, however the scientific principles supporting the theory that increasing 5-htp levels will in-turn increase melatonin levels to help alleviate symptoms in those suffering with a sleeping disorder, are well-established.
You could also argue that thousands of positive product reviews for 5-htp confirming the effectiveness of taking to treit to improve sleep also provides a weight of evidence, albeit anecdotal.
