NOW Foods 5-HTP Neurotransmitter Support 50 mg. contains 5-HTP (5-hydroxytryptophan), which is the intermediate metabolite between the amino acid L-tryptophan and serotonin. It is extracted from the bean of an African plant (Griffonia simplicifolia). You may know tryptophan as the substance in turkey that makes you feel like taking a nap after Thanksgiving dinner. 5-HTP is a direct precursor of the important inhibitory neurotransmitter serotonin, which is secreted in response to mood or emotion swings. Serotonin soothes and calms and brings about feelings of contentment. It is also the precursor to the antioxidant and sleep enhancer called melatonin, which is produced in the pineal gland by the conversion of serotonin.
