5-HTP (5-Hydroxytryptophan)

100MG, 60 Capsules

5-HTP plays a role in both sleep regulation and mood balance. 5-HTP is a precursor for serotonin, which can then be converted to melatonin (the hormone that helps us fall and stay asleep). However, 5-HTP bypasses the light-triggering system that regulates the release of melatonin, increasing both serotonin and melatonin release, regardless of light or time of day. Serotonin has a calming effect on brain chemistry, and may help to ease anxiety. Serotonin also plays an important role in many other bodily functions, including digestion, appetite, and pain perception. Our 5-HTP is naturally derived from the seeds of the African plant Griffonia simplicifolia and is combined with activated vitamin B-6 as active P-5-P, an important co-factor in serotonin metabolism. Consult with your physician if using SSRI’s. *

Description: 5-HTP is a metabolite of L-tryptophan and a precursor of serotonin and melatonin. Our 5-HTP is naturally derived from the seeds of the African plant, Griffonia simplicifolia, and is combined with activated vitamin B-6 (P5P), an important cofactor in serotonin metabolism.

Uses: 5-HTP supports healthy serotonin levels. Serotonin is an important neurotransmitter that plays a role in mood, sleep, anxiety, appetite, pain sensation, and gut health. Clinical trials indicate that 5-HTP provides support for normal moods and emotional well-being.

5-HTP may moderate appetite and food cravings, and two weight-loss studies recorded significant results compared to placebo. Serotonin is also found in high concentrations in the gut where it regulates gastrointestinal motility.

5-HTP may moderate cranial blood vessel function to promote cranial comfort.

Glycine, an inhibitory neurotransmitter in the central nervous system, can have a calming effect.

Vitamin B-6 is essential for reactions involving the metabolism of amino acids, including the conversion of 5-HTP to serotonin.

Vitamin C is the most important water soluble antioxidant in the body. It is a cofactor in the biosynthesis of the catecholamine neurotransmitters, epinephrine, norepinephrine, and dopamine.

Source Materials: 5-HTP is extracted from Griffonia simplicifolia seeds. Ascorbic acid is derived from corn sorbitol. P5P and glycine are synthetic. Cellulose for capsules is derived from softwood tree pulp. All ingredients are vegan and there is no detectable GM material present.
