How it works: 5-HTP is the intermediate precursor in the natural synthesis of serotonin, a neurotransmitter that helps to regulate mood, appetite, and sleep/wake cycles. 5-HTP readily crosses the blood-brain barrier and clinical studies suggest that 5-HTP can support healthy serotonin levels. Glycine is known to bind to the NMDA receptor, where it exerts inhibitory and neuroprotective effects. In addition, Glycine has been show to support memory and cognition in scientific studies. This formula is further enhanced with Taurine and Inositol.
Warning: 5-HTP should be used with caution in combination with any serotonergic drug or herb. These include dextromethorphan, meperidine, SSRIs, SNRIs, MAOIs, and other antidepressants, as well as St. John's Wort. If you take any of these medications, consult your health care practitioner prior to using this product. Individuals with a history of cardiac conditions, use only under the direction of your health care practitioner.
