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.
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.
