5-HTP, the immediate precursor to Serotonin, serves as a natural way to promote a relaxed mood, while reducing stress-induced food cravings and supporting better sleep!

What is 5-HTP?

5-HTP (5-Hydroxytryptophan) is a naturally plant-derived amino acid that is extracted from the seed of the Griffonia simplicifolia plant. As the immediate precursor to Serotonin, 5-HTP converts directly into Serotonin in your brain.

Why is Serotonin important? Because this is the "feel good" neurotransmitter in your brain that promotes relaxation of the mind and body. 5-HTP is also beneficial because Serotonin enhances satiety “the felling of fullness” and regulates Melatonin, your body’s natural sleep hormone.

Health Benefits of 5-HTP:

  • Enables production of Serotonin
  • Relieves anxiety and stress
  • Improves positive mood
  • Reduces appetite and food cravings
  • Helps you asleep faster and stay asleep longer

  • Serotonin production declines as we age, and stress can further compromise its production at any age. The most common symptoms of low Serotonin levels include depression, anxiety, and disrupted sleep.

    Why Our 5-HTP is a Great Value!

    For exceptional purity, the standardized extract of Griffonia simplicifolia is tested for and verified free of Peak-X (a contaminant found in some earlier products of 5-HTP). Try our 5-HTP and feel the difference today!

    5-hydroxytryptophan is used by the human body to make serotonin, an important substance for normal nerve and brain function. Serotonin appears to play significant roles in sleep, emotional moods, pain control, inflammation, intestinal peristalsis, and other body functions.1

    • Reliable and relatively consistent scientific data showing a substantial health benefit.
    • Contradictory, insufficient, or preliminary studies suggesting a health benefit or minimal health benefit.
    • For an herb, supported by traditional use but minimal or no scientific evidence. For a supplement, little scientific support.

    Our proprietary “Star-Rating” system was developed to help you easily understand the amount of scientific support behind each supplement in relation to a specific health condition. While there is no way to predict whether a vitamin, mineral, or herb will successfully treat or prevent associated health conditions, our unique ratings tell you how well these supplements are understood by the medical community, and whether studies have found them to be effective for other people.

    For over a decade, our team has combed through thousands of research articles published in reputable journals. To help you make educated decisions, and to better understand controversial or confusing supplements, our medical experts have digested the science into these three easy-to-follow ratings. We hope this provides you with a helpful resource to make informed decisions towards your health and well-being.

    Best Quality Review by suescorner

    I have tried several different 5-HTP products, and this brand with the extract, is by far the most effective 5-HTP I've used. I have low grade depression during high stress times, and do not sleep well... depending on the stress load 1-3 of these make a HUGE difference...
