5-HTP is an amino acid that plays an important role in the production of serotonin, a neurotransmitter known to be associated with the feeling of well-being. In addition to supporting a healthy mental outlook and a positive mood, studies have also shown serotonin to encourage deeper sleep and to support healthy appetite regulation. Unlike oral serotonin, 5-HTP is able to effectively cross the blood-brain barrier and increase synthesis of serotonin in the central nervous system. The precursor to serotonin, our 5-hydroxytryptophan is extracted naturally from the seed of the African plant Griffonia simplicifolia.
Suggested Use: 1 or more capsules per day or as recommended by your health care professional.
