5-Hydroxytryptophan (5-HTP) is an intermediate in the natural synthesis of the essential amino acid, tryptophan, to serotonin. In clinical studies, administration of 5-HTP increased serotonin levels. The enzyme tryptophan hydroxylase adds a hydroxyl group (OH) to tryptophan, forming the 5-HTP intermediate. In the body, it converts to serotonin with the removal of a carboxyl group (COOH) by a second enzyme. The 5-HTP supplied in this supplement is derived from the Griffonia simplicifolia plant. Serotonin is an important neurotransmitter involved in the regulation of endocrine and brain activity responsible for emotion, appetite and wake/sleep/wake cycles.

Supplementation with 5-HTP encourages brain serotonin levels that can lead to positive effects on emotional well-being, appetite control, and sleep/wake/sleep cycles.

Ingredients per capsule:
5-hydroxytryptophan (Griffonia simplicifolia) 50 mg.

Other ingredients: hypo-allergenic plant fiber, vegetable capsule.

Not to be taken by pregnant or lactating women. Do not use with SSRI medications.

5-hydroxytryptophan‚ also known as 5-HTP‚ is a substance that occurs halfway through the process of converting tryptophan into serotonin. As a result‚ you may benefit more quickly‚ since the body doesn't have to spend as much time processing the tryptophan in foods like turkey to make it usable.
