5-HTP affects the production of serotonin - the hormone of happiness 

5-HTP 50 mg is 5-hydroxytryptophan in the form of vegan capsules, an interproduct metabolite of the essential amino acid tryptophan and serotonin. It is found naturally in our body, but it can also be taken as a dietary supplement. 5-HTP is produced by extraction from the Griffonia simplicifolia plant that grows in Africa. 5-HTP is a precursor of serotonin, which is considered to be a hormone of happiness, so its consumption may increase its production.

Serotonin affects brain cells and can affect body temperature, sleep, pain sensitivity or appetite. 5-HTP is in the form of vegan capsules, which are well digestable, and you take 50 mg of 5-HTP in one dose.
