I’ve been taking 5-htp for a while now! It started back when I was a “raver” in the late 90’s and after a night of partying the tactic was to try and restore serotonin levels with this precursor. 5-htp is currently thought of as the last metabolite before being turned into serotonin and also supposedly crosses the blood brain barrier. Over the years at some point to fight off depression I just started to take it all the time, and for years now it has been a staple.
