  • Description

    5-HTP is a precursor to serotonin, an important neurotransmitter in the brain . Serotonin is normally synthesized from tryptophan via the intermediate metabolite 5-HTP . Extracted from the seeds of the Griffonia simplicifolia, supplemented 5-HTP is well absorbed and bypasses the normal conversion of tryptophan into 5-HTP . In the central nervous system, serotonin helps to regulate a variety of biological processes, such as mood and sleep. As normal mood depends on normal levels of serotonin, 5-HTP has been shown to help promote healthy mood balance by easily crossing the blood-brain barrier to increase serotonin levels. As a sleep aid, 5-HTP helps promote restful sleep by increasing REM sleep1
