Yes, some people find that 5-HTP supplements help them lose more weight.

Serotonin is a neurotransmitter best known for boosting your mood, but it also helps you control hunger by signaling satiety. 5-HTP (5-hydroxytrytophan) is a naturally-occurring serotonin precursor.  So, 5-HTP supplements can help boost serotonin levels, thereby making us feel fuller faster.

Medical studies also support the combination of 5-HTP and phentermine for greater weight loss results. Additionally, this supplement may help reduce phentermine side effects like insomnia and low mood.
