Amino Acid for Serotonin Support

5-HTP is a natural component derived from the seed of the African plant Griffonia Simplicifolia. It is an active intermediate metabolite between tryptophan and serotonin. In the central nervous system, serotonin plays a significant role in the modulation of emotional mood, sleep, appetite, stress resistance, pain control and other body functions.

Functions of 5-HTP

  • Serotonin is thought to contribute to feelings of wellbeing and happiness. This neurotransmitter regulates mood, appetite, sleep, memory and learning.
  • 5-HTP is also a precursor to melatonin, a hormone which helps regulate sleep and an antioxidant. 5-HTP supplementation supports restful sleep.
  • 5-HTP supports weight management and appetite control.
