In the August 1998 issue of “Alternative Medicine Review,” a study found 5-HTP to be a clinically effective source of serotonin. As serotonin is an important neurotransmitter in the regulation of depression, anxiety, sleep and other parameters of well-being, 5-HTP may be used for anxiety if further scientific investigations prove its efficacy.

Another double-blind placebo-controlled study of January 1987, published in “International Clinical Psychopharmacology” compared the effect of the anti-anxiety conventional drug Clopiramine and 5-HTP. The study involved 45 individuals diagnosed with anxiety. The scientists found that 5-HTP showed reduction in anxiety symptoms.
