5-HTP is primarily used to support mood through its ability to boost serotonin levels. 5-HTP has been compared to various tricyclic antidepressants and has been found to be as effective with fewer side effects and quicker effectiveness. Since serotonin and melatonin are also involved in regulating the sleep/wake cycle, 5-HTP may enhance sleep quality.
