5-HTP or 5-hydroxytryptophan is an intermediate metabolite used to produce serotonin. Serotonin is a very important substance that helps promote normal brain and nerve function. Serotonin is the main neurotransmitter that supports mood, sleep functions, and appetite.
5-HTP 5-Hydroxytryptophan (5-HTP), also known as oxitriptan (INN), is a naturally occurring amino acid and chemical precursor as well as an ametabolic intermediate in the biosynthesis of the neurotransmitters serotonin and melatonin from tryptophan.

5-HTP is sold over the counter in the United Kingdom, the United States, and Canada as a dietary supplement for use as an antidepressant, appetite suppressant, and sleep aid, and is also marketed in many European countries for the indication of major depression under trade names like Cincofarm, Levothym, Levotonine, Oxyfan, Telesol, Tript-OH, and Triptum.
