5-Hydroxy L-Tryptophan 100 mg



SKU: 0363 Categories: , Tags: , ,

5-hydroxytryptophan (5-HTP) is an intermediate in the conversion of the essential amino acid l-tryptophan to serotonin. Serotonin
is an important neurotransmitter, associated with the regulation of sleep cycles, mood, and appetite. Supplementing with 5-HTP is
an efficient way to support brain serotonin production because it bypasses the rate-limiting step in the synthesis of serotonin, the
conversion of l-tryptophan into 5-HTP. Seventy percent of orally administered 5-HTP enters the blood stream and then easily crosses
the blood-brain barrier. 5-HTP is produced by extraction from the seeds of Griffonia simplicifolia, a tree found mainly in West Africa.
