Our pure pharmaceutical grade 5-HTP is a natural L-5-hydroxytryptophan dietary supplement designed to help support natural sleep cycles and mental well-being. It is a safe, natural and inexpensive solution to all varying symptoms of serotonin deficiency syndrome .
5-HTP is an intermediate in the natural conversion of the essential amino acid, tryptophan, to serotonin. Clinical studies have shown that 5-HTP increases the amount and availability of serotonin produced by the body.
Increased brain serotonin levels may support positive mental well-being, appetite control, melatonin production and a healthy sleep cycle. Contains no gluten or other common allergens.
5-HTP has produced clear and significant improvements in:
• Eating Disorders
• Adrenal Support
Research shows 50 mg of 5HTP is as effective as or better than the state of the art anti-depressive drugs for clinical depression with no side effects. Like L-tryptophan, 5HTP readily crosses the brain-blood barrier and is directly converted into serotonin. Because 5HTP doesn't compete with other amino acids, and can only be used for serotonin, it is 5-10 times more potent than L-tryptophan.
