Also recognized as INN or oxitriptan, 5-Hydroxytryptophan is an amino acid taking place naturally inside the body and chemical forerunner such as metabolic intermediary from tryptophan’s biological synthesis of the melatonin and serotonin neurotransmitters.

5-HTP is decarboxylated to 5-HT known as serotonin or the 5-Hydroxytrytopamine by the aromatic enzyme which is the decarboxylase L- amino acid through the support of Vitamin B6. This reaction takes place in both in the liver and in nervous tissue as well. As a comparison, 5-HTP could pass through the blood-brain barrier, but then 5-HT could not. Excess 5-HTP is considered to be excreted and metabolized explicitly when it is administered with the presence of Vitamin B6.

But then numerous studies have detailed that 5-HTP is effectual yet lacking carbidopa which is a peripheral decarboxylase blocker. Some studies have specified the threat of conditions alike scleroderma consequential from the carbidopa and 5-HTP combination.
