5-HTP (5-Hydroxtryptophan) encourages increased serotonin levels in the brain to promote a heightened state of emotional well-being, support appetite control and sleep/wake cycles.
What Is It?
5-Hydroxytryptophan (5-HTP) is an intermediate in the natural synthesis of the essential amino acid, tryptophan, to serotonin. Clinical studies suggest that 5-HTP supports healthy serotonin levels. In the body, 5-HTP converts to serotonin. Serotonin is an important neurotransmitter involved in the regulation of endocrine and brainactivity responsible for emotion, appetite and sleep/wake cycles.
Uses For 5-HTP
Emotional Well-Being: Two open trials and a double blind comparative investigation indicate that 5-HTP provides promising support for emotional well-being. Additional studies indicate similar potential for support.
Appetite And Weight Management Support: 5-HTP has been shown to help moderate appetite and food cravings in study participants.
