Tryptophan, an essential amino acid, is a building block of our proteins and the precursor of several important metabolites. The most important metabolite is serotonin. Although less than 3% of dietary tryptophan is converted to serotonin in the brain, the intermediate compound, 5-hydroxytryptophan (5-HTP), easily crosses the blood brain barrier and is metabolized to serotonin.

Serotonin levels have been shown to be decreased in individuals who suffer from depression. In addition to increasing serotonin level, 5-HTP can also increase catecholamines such as dopamine and norephinephrine, thereby having a significant impact on brain chemistry. For this reason, 5-HTP is not suitable for use with mood modifying medication, unless professionally directed.
