5-Hydroxytryptophan (5-HTP) is the immediate precursor in the biosynthesis of the neurotransmitter 5-hydroxytryptamine (5 HT or serotonin). 5-HT is synthesized from the amino acid L-tryptophan. 5-HTP has replaced the use ofL-tryptophan in the United States. In 1989, patients taking L-tryptophandeveloped a negative and debilitating reaction called eosinophilia-myalgiasyndrome. Upon further study, it was determined that the culprit was not theL-tryptophan. It was actually a bacterial contaminant in the formula.L-tryptophan products associated with the syndrome were found to come fromgenetically modified bacterial recombinant production methods. Even though L-tryptophan was proven safe, it never recovered from this incident. 5-HTP wascreated to fill the gap created by the removal of L-tryptophan in themarketplace.

Small amounts of 5-HTP, as well as serotonin, are found in bananas,tomatoes, plums, avocados, eggplant, walnuts and pineapples. A commoncommercial source of 5-HTP is Griffonia simplicifolia, a relative to carob.5-HTP’s possible pain reduction benefit comes from its conversion toserotonin and to the observed effect of raising beta-endorphin and plateletmet-enkephalin levels.

Serum leptin levels increased following 5-HTP injection in mice. This mayexplain 5-HTP’s beneficial effect on weight management. Additionally,5-HTP has been shown to reduce carbohydrate intake.

Contraindications:

  • Patients on MAOIs (approved 2 weeks after discontinuation)
  • Patients with carcinoid tumors
  • Should not be used concurrently with medications such as SSRIs, tricyclic antidepressants, MAOIs.
  • Should not be used concurrently with serotonin 5-HT1 receptor agonists including Naratriptan, Sumatriptan, and Zolmitriptan.
  • Patients with ischemic heart disease (Hx of myocardial infarction, angina pectoris, documented silent ischemia)
  • Patients with Hx of coronary artery spasm
  • Uncontrolled hypertension
  • Pregnant women and nursing mothers

Side effects: Due to excessive serotonin production side effects couldinclude nausea, diarrhea, loss of appetite, vomiting, difficult breathing,dilation of pupils, exaggerated reflexes, loss of muscle coordination, blurringof vision and cardiac dysrhythmias.

Note: Carbidopa may increase 5-HTP transport across the blood brain barrierdue to decreased peripheral 5-HTP metabolism. Methyldopa inhibits conversion of5-HTP to serotonin.

    I suffer from depression/ptsd/borderline all my life. It has robbed me from so much. I tried almost everything with no relief even electric shock therapy. My body cant tolerate psychotrophic medication. The side effects were unbearable and many natural treatments did not help or made me worse. I take 400mg of 5 HTP a day and noticed a big difference in my mood right away. I feel more balanced. I have less negative thinking and suicidal thoughts. I feel like so much emotional pain and suffering has lifted.
