5-Hydroxytryptophan (5-HTP) is an amino acid that is the intermediate step between tryptophan and the important brain chemical serotonin. Serotonin promotes healthy sleep, appetite, and mood. 5-HTP helps your body increase the production of serotonin.
Please refer to chapter 4, The Calcium Lie 2 for more understanding/information.
A safe alternative to L-tryptophan, L5HTP (L-5-hydroxytryptophan) is a precursor to serotonin, supporting serotonin levels while respecting the body’s ability to self-regulate synthesis.† Trials involving L5HTP show a supportive role in appetite control, easing the ability to fall asleep, and aiding in mood regulation.† This 5HTP is sourced from seeds of the griffonia plant, allowing for a sustainable eco-friendly source for 5HTP.
