Serotonin is a neurotransmitter which can be described as a hormone for the brain, specifically responsible for making you happy. Some theories suggest that if your serotonin levels are higher you are not going to eat much, hence its importance in suppressing appetite

5-HTP supplements can access the brain from the blood stream which is something that cannot be done by serotonin. Chemicals have to pass the brain-blood barrier and serotonin cannot do that making it necessary to take a supplement like 5-HTP to increase serotonin levels in the brain.
