How 5-HTP Helps Improve Sleep

How 5-HTP Helps Improve Sleep

Low quality sleep is a frequent problem for many and can hinder daily life and negatively impact health and longevity.1

5-HTP otherwise known as 5-Hydroxytryptophan is an amino acid made in the body from the amino acid tryptophan. 5-HTP is used for the synthesis of the neurotransmitters serotonin and melatonin.

Higher 5-HTP levels promote the production of serotonin which can be made into melatonin. Melatonin plays a critical role in regulating sleep by signaling the body it is time to sleep.2

In a randomized clinical trial of an amino acid preparation that contained 5-HTP, researchers noted that the mixture decreased sleep onset time, increased sleep duration and improved sleep quality.3

Two more studies support the effects of 5-HTP and researchers note that the effects were even greater when 5-HTP is combined with GABA.4,5


5-HTP can help promote sleep by increasing the production of a hormone that helps regulate sleep called melatonin.

In addition to 5-HTP, there are several other nutrients and herbs which have been shown to positively affect sleep by decreasing onset, increasing duration and improving quality in scientific studies. We combined them into one simple formula called Sleep Support by Beyond Vita®.*
