Doctor's Best, 5-HTP, 100mg, 60 Veggie Caps

5-HTP (100mg) Overview

Although it's a technically an amino acid compound, 5-HTP is actually a herbal supplement, derived from the herb Griffonia simplicifolia. In the body, 5-HTP (5-hydroxytryptophan) gets converted to the neurotransmitter serotonin. Serotonin influences how we feel physically and mentally, but since serotonin can't be supplemented directly, people have used 5-HTP for help with a wide range of conditions related to low serotonin levels, primarily appetite regulation, poor mood, and poor sleep patterns.

5-HTP (100mg) Description from Doctor's Best
5-HTP (5-hydroxy L-tryptophan) is a naturally occurring metabolite of the amino acid tryptophan. 5-HTP is converted in the brain to serotonin, a neurotransmitter substance found at the junctions (synapses) between neurons. 5-HTP is extracted from the seeds of the Griffonia simplicifolia plant.
