5-HTP is an amino acid naturally produced in the brain and several plant species. It serves as a precursor molecule for building two important neurotransmitters — melatonin (for sleep) and serotonin (for mood). By providing the brain with plenty of 5-HTP, we have ample opportunity to produce enough of these important neurotransmitters to regulate our mood and sleep effectively.
Serotonin is one of the principal neurotransmitters involved in maintaining a stable mood, sleeping better and having a healthy response to stress.
Our highly concentrated 5-HTP capsules are clean herbal supplements extracted from the seeds of the African plant, Griffonia Simplicifolia. Our 400mg Griffonia Seed extract equivalent provides 50mg of ‘active’ 5-HTP. It’s a balanced 5-HTP dose which is double or quadruple the potency of other brands.
