5-Hydroxytryptophan (5 HTP) plays an essential role in the body’s production of serotonin, which is an important chemical messenger in the brain. It may also play a key role in the body’s synthesis of melatonin. Although the body naturally makes 5 HTP from the amino acid Tryptophan, dietary sources can help to supplement the body’s production.
We live life at a demanding and challenging pace, which can take its toll on our bodies and serotonin levels. Serotonin is involved in mood, appetite and impulse control, and has a direct effect on our state of restfulness and restlessness. Because of this, serotonin is fondly referred to as the “happy hormone”.
Our Super Strength 5HTP 100mg tablets have been formulated to provide a safe and effective level of this essential amino acid, based on strengths used in successful clinical trials. We have spared no expense in sourcing premium-quality extracts from the West African plant known are Griffonia Simplicifolia, which are then produced in the UK within GMP quality approved facilities.
