How does it work  


5-HTP works in the brain and central nervous system by increasing the  production of the chemical serotonin. Serotonin can affect sleep,  appetite, temperature, sexual behavior, and pain sensation. Since 5-HTP  increases the synthesis of serotonin, it is used for several diseases  where serotonin is believed to play an important role including  depression, insomnia, obesity, and many other conditions.
