Promotes brain serotonin levels to support emotional well-being, healthy eating behavior, and healthy sleep*.

5-Hydroxytryptophan (5-HTP) is an intermediate in the natural synthesis of the essential amino acid, tryptophan, to serotonin. The enzyme tryptophan hydroxylase adds a hydroxyl group (OH) to tryptophan, forming the 5-HTP intermediate. In the body, it converts to serotonin with the removal of a carboxyl group (COOH) by a second enzyme. Serotonin is an important neurotransmitter involved in the regulation of endocrine and brain activity responsible for emotion, satiety, and sleep/wake cycles. In clinical studies, the administration of 5-HTP supported serotonin production. The 5-HTP supplied in this supplement is derived from the Griffonia simplicifolia plant.*

I take this

I take this for anxiety and it helps tremendously without making me tired or feeling like I took anything. It just helps to calm you.

I ordered this

I ordered this because of recommendations from 2 different groups. One for trouble sleeping in menopause and 1 for coming off of seroquel for sleep. I read a lot of reviews and this one had the best reviews. I received this yesterday and took 1 about 2 hours before bed. For the 1st time in months I slept all night and didn't wake up. Truly gave me so much happiness, just getting sleep. This will be a permanent supplement that is now added to my others.

Product arrived already

Product arrived already open and missing capsules. Return needs to be made possible.

I had bad

I had bad side effects from this. Amplified anxiety and extreme mood swings. After I got off it, then those disappeared again. ADHD background, not sure if that changes the reaction to the med.
