Basically, 5-HTP increases serotonin, which is a neurotransmitter (it transmits signals between different parts of your brain) and directly affects mood. Consuming 5-HTP means your body can produce more serotonin and melatonin; helping you sleep, helping your brain work faster, and positively re-balancing your mood.
5-HTP is a precursor of serotonin, and serotonin is itself a precursor of melatonin - which is secreted by the pineal gland and aids sleep, 5-HTP is very useful as a gentle but potent sleeping aid when taken about an hour before bedtime. 5-HTP has been clinically studied and shown to be of benefit in the following conditions: primary fibromyalgia syndrome, Friedreich's ataxia, depression, anxiety, binge eating associated with obesity, and insomnia.
5-HTP performs a similar function to St John's Wort and Valerian Root, but whereas St John's Wort is used more to combat mild psychological depression (Even prescribed in many European countries), and Valerian is more for insomnia and nervous tension or stress, 5-HTP is more of a general mood boost for those not actually depressed, but overworked or mentally tired.
Because St Johns Wort is unsuitable for women taking the contraceptive pill, 5-HTP can be a perfect substitute.
