Within the body, 5-HTP changes to serotonin, one of the most important natural transmitters in the brain. Essentially, when were low on serotonin, we experience cravings and feelings of depression. So, if you can influence the bodys use of serotonin, you can influence the bodys appetite and mood.
Serotonin acts as the bridge from one neuron to the next. It acts as a courier that helps pass along the brains command to the lungs to take a breath; another example is the way in which serotonin relays a message to the fingers that a pan is hot.
Without serotonin, as you might imagine, we would die. Serotonin is a remarkable biochemical and plays an important role in a wide variety of disorders. According to University of Mississippi researcher Ronald F. Bore, serotonin is the neurotransmitter of the 1990s. He writes that of the chemical neurotransmitter substances . . . serotonin is perhaps the most implicated in the etiology of various disorders, particularly those of the central nervous system.
