Tryptophan is the presursor to 5HTP, and 5HTP is the presursor to serotonin. 5HTP is one step closer than tryptophan in the serotonin synthesis process. Only a fraction of tryptophan actually gets converted to 5HTP. A lot of the tryptophan is broken down into other undesired byproducts. 5HTP is a much more efficient choice, though some people actually do better with tryptophan. If 5HTP is not available near you, it can be mailordered from many sources which can be found by doing a web search of 5HTP or checking out an overseas pharmacy found in posts on this page. Let us know how it goes. jamie
