> Maybe maybe not. 5-htp is not really natural. Even 10mg is way more than you could ever get naturally from seeds. The body normally converts tryptophan to serotonin in the brain. 5-htp bypasses this. If it is enough to increases serotonin receptor singalling in the brain, it is enough to increases serotonin receptor singalling in the periphery.

Well, you could be right Link. I say that because a mere 5mg 5htp causes me severe sexual side effects worse than an SSRI ever did. Maybe I needed to take the cofactors B6 and C with it for better brain metabolism, I dunno. Bottom line though, for me, even just 5mg 5htp made a lot of serotonin. I friek out when I see people taking more than 50mg a day.
