5-HTP stands for L-5-hydroxytryptophan, which comes from the amino acid tryptophan found in many proteins and the seeds of an African plant known as Griffonia simplicifolia. 5-HTP Extra Strength provides the amino acid building blocks in the production of serotonin – a key neurotransmitter associated with mood regulation- which is then used to produce the neurohormone melatonin. 

Low serotonin levels may be associated with genetic polymorphisms in the serotonin transporter, and decreased serotonin receptor activity. Low levels of L-tryptophan, or the co-factor vitamin B6, required for serotonin production can also lead to reduced serotonin activity. Other causes of decreased conversion of L-tryptophan to serotonin may include: 


Insulin resistance 

Insufficient magnesium 

Fibromyalgia is a complex conditions with patients suffering an array of symptoms including:  pain, sleep disruption, fatigue and depressive symptoms. Serotonin levels appear to be low in these patients which led to the use of tricyclic and SSRI antidepressants to be used in management of symptoms.   

Ultimately, those who suffer from mood imbalances or are experiencing symptoms associated with fibromyalgia may benefit from taking 5-HTP in conjunction with wholistic treatment protocols.
