Serotonin is a brain chemical (neurotransmitter) that helps to support a feeling of well-being and relaxation. Serotonin helps with good sleep and appetite control.
To create serotonin, your body starts with an amino acid called tryptophan and then converts tryptophan into 5-hydroxytryptophan (5-HTP). 5-HTP is then used to make serotonin.
Many things that can disturb the natural production of serotonin – from what you eat (or don’t eat), how much stress you are under, high blood sugar, low vitamin B6, and low magnesium. Studies show that supplementing with 5-HTP can increase serotonin production.
5-HTP is a premium serotonin building block designed to help support emotional well-being.
• Our 5-HTP is extracted from the seed of the African shrub (Griffonia simplicifolia), the best natural source of 5-HTP.
5-HTP is designed to help support:
• Mental and emotional well-being
