In this video, you’ll learn the nootropic benefits of 5-HTP. Including what it is, why it’s used as a nootropic, recommended dosage, possible side effects, clinical research, and why I do NOT recommend using 5-HTP as a nootropic supplement.

5-HTP is an amino acid that is naturally produced in your body. 5-HTP is synthesized from the amino acid tryptophan which we get from food.

5-HTP is the immediate precursor of serotonin. And as a nootropic and dietary supplement, 5-HTP is popular with those who advocate its effectiveness in treating depression. Along with a number of other serotonin-related diseases.

But using 5-HTP for treating depression and anxiety is not supported by science. The research is contrary to how 5-HTP is viewed by many, including medical doctors.

In this video I dig into the science behind 5-HTP. And while 5-HTP is a necessary ingredient for serotonin synthesis, using it as a nootropic supplement is a BAD idea. It could be downright deadly.
