Like L-Tryptophan,5-HTP is a natural building block of serotonin, the neurotransmitter that controls appetite, mood, sleep patterns, and nervous system function. However, 5-HTP is one step closer to serotonin and is more easily converted to natural serotonin in your brain or digestive tract. For this reason, most practitioners recommend only about one-fifth the dose of 5-HTP that they do for L-Tryptophan. Please read the article "L-Tryptophan and 5-HTP, a Comparison" for more information.

In addition to the above 5-HTP benefits, some individuals may have difficulty metabolizing L-Tryptophan properly. Because 5-HTP is one step closer to serotonin, these individuals may need 5-HTP to achieve normal serotonin levels.
