5-HTP has been extensively researched for the treatment of mood enhancement due to its ability to enhance serotonin levels in the body. It also relieves insomnia. 5-HTP allows for natural sleep without the drugged feeling in the morning that can occur in those taking prescription sedatives. Weight management is another benefit achieved from taking 5-HTP. There is evidence that the body's serotonin pathway does not work in people with fibromyalgia, and 5-HTP has been shown to stop the pain of fibromyalgia.
