5HTP (L-5-hydroxytryptophan) derived from the Griffonia simplicifolia
Helps to promote healthy mood balance
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, sleep and appetite. As a balanced emotional state depends on normal levels of serotonin, 5-HTP has been shown to support healthy mood by easily crossing the blood-brain barrier to increase serotonin levels. By promoting healthy serotonin metabolism, 5-HTP also supports cranial vessel comfort. As a sleep aid, 5-HTP promotes sleep quality by increasing REM sleep.
