Product Description

5-HTP (5-Hydroxytryptophan), the active form of L-Tryptophan, is the metabolic precursor of the neurotransmitters, serotonin and melatonin.  Seratonin is important for alertness, mood elevation and balance, digestion and memory.  Melatonin promotes deep and healing sleep that are also important for mood balance and for the brain to maintain itself with night-time repairs and detoxification processes. Low levels of seratonin can contribute to insomnia, depression, migraines and anxiety. Low levels of melatonin can lead to sleep disorders.  Tryptophan is an essential amino acid that must be supplied from food; the body cannot synthesize tryptophan.

 
If regularly used, 5-HTP should be taken at night and L-Tyrosine in the morning.  These two precursors to neurotransmitters work together and are needed to keep the neurotransmitters Dopamine at the correct level.  Almost everyone in the United States should take Tyrosine in the morning and Tryptophan at night because Round-up depletes our food supplies and bodies of both these essential amino acids.  To learn more about the impact of Round-up and related toxins on our metabolism, please click here.  When taken as directed, our 5-HTP is completely safe and is an extract of Griffonia simplicifolia seeds from coastal West Africa.
 
Here is a diagram showing the pathway from which Tryptophan is converted to 5-HTP and then to serotonin and melatonin:
