Produced from the seeds of the African plant, Griffonia simplicifolia, 5-HTP (L-5-hydroxytryptophan) is the immediate precursor of serotonin, a neurohormone essential for melatonin production, appetite control, and mood regulation. A fast-acting vegetarian product that supports serotonin production, 5-HTP supplementation provides nutritional support for normal sleep and mood. Studies have shown that people given 5-HTP experienced significant mood improvement versus placebo, and that REM and deep sleep are improved with 5-HTP. 50 mg of 5-HTP is equivalent to approximately 500 mg tryptophan activity. 5-HTP is not suitable for use with mood modifying medication, unless professionally directed.
