Tag: 5-HTP

5-HTP (5-Hydroxtryptophan) is a dietary supplement from the seeds of the African Griffonia Simplicifloia plant.

Possibly effective in the treatment of depression and a myriad of other conditions, although its efficacy is either low or unproven.

However, research does show that 5HTP can relieve post-MDMA dysphoria. As MDMA use depletes a person’s natural serotonin levels, taking 5-HTP after consuming MDMA will speed up serotonin production, as 5-HTP is a necessary precursor for the brain to produce more serotonin.
