5-HTP (5-Hydroxytryptophan) is a naturally-derived amino acid that supports serotonin production in the body. Serotonin is a neurotransmitter associated with promoting a balanced, positive mood and a sense of well-being.

Key Benefits of 5-HTP:

  • Helps support healthy serotonin levels for a balanced, positive mood
  • Promotes deeper, more restful sleep and healthy sleep cycle regulation
  • May help curb carbohydrate cravings and support healthy appetite regulation
  • Has been shown to provide relief for occasional headaches and body discomfort

5-HTP is extracted from the seeds of the African plant Griffonia simplicifolia. Unlike oral serotonin supplements, 5-HTP can effectively cross the blood-brain barrier to boost serotonin synthesis in the central nervous system. It bypasses the need for conversion from tryptophan, which can be impaired by stress, vitamin deficiencies, and other factors.

With a variety of benefits for emotional well-being, sleep quality, appetite control, and more, 5-HTP is a natural way to replenish serotonin levels depleted by busy modern lifestyles and poor diets. It promotes an overall positive mood, comfort, and balanced state of mind.
