From the manufacturer's website:
Promotes brain serotonin levels to support emotional well-being, healthy eating behavior, and healthy sleep*.
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. Serotonin is an important neurotransmitter involved in the regulation of endocrine and brain activity responsible for emotion, appetite, and sleep/wake cycles.*
