What is 5-HTP?

5-Hydroxytryptophan (5-HTP) is an intermediate in the natural synthesis of the essential amino acid tryptophan to serotonin.

What is serotonin?

Serotonin is an important neurotransmitter involved in the regulation of endocrine and brain activity responsible for emotion, appetite, and sleep/wake cycles.* Almost 90% of the human body’s total serotonin is located in the alimentary canal, where it is used to regulate peristalsis.

What does serotonin do?

In the central nervous system, neurons use serotonin to regulate various functions including mood, appetite, and sleep. Diet, specifically carbohydrate intake and the amino acid, tryptophan, affects serotonin levels.

What do 5-HTP capsules do?

Increased intake of tryptophan or its metabolic intermediate, 5-HTP, may increase serotonin levels and help support healthy mood and appetite as well as sleep through its role in serotonin synthesis.

5-HTP capsules provides optimal levels of naturally occurring L-5-hydroxytryptophan. Our formula is synergized with important nutrients like vitamin C and B-6. These vitamins aid the conversion of tryptophan to serotonin in the body
