Sfera’s 5-HTP supplement is sourced from the seeds of the Griffonia shrub, which is very rich in 5-HTP, making up nearly 20% of its composition. 5-HTP serves as a precursor to
the synthesis of serotonin, which regulates your mood, appetite and sleep. This plant-based amino acid supplement can help with stress and anxiety, sleeplessness, headaches and fatigue.

  • Natural 5-HTP amino acid supplement
  • Made from griffonia seed
  • With added P5P (vitamin B6) to improve efficacy
  • No artificial additives or colourants

Because of its ability to boost serotonin levels, 5-HTP can help with:

  • Feelings of depression, stress, fatigue & anxiety
  • Insomnia & restless sleep
  • Chronic pain, migraines & tension headaches
  • PMS & menopausal symptoms

How It Works: The essential amino acid l-tryptophan can be found in some foods, but the enzyme tryptophan hydroxylase is needed to convert it into 5-HTP and ultimately into serotonin. Issues like stress and vitamin deficiency can affect your levels of tryptophan hydroxylase. Supplementing with 5-HTP overcomes this problem, by making more 5-HTP immediately available for conversion into serotonin.


  • Adults: As a food supplement, take 1 capsule daily with food, or as directed by your healthcare practitioner.
  • Mood enhancement: 1 capsule 3 times a day
  • Chronic pain relief: 1 capsule 3-4 times a day
  • Migraines: 2 capsules 2-3 times a day
  • Sleep aid: 3 capsules 30-45min before bed
  • Weight aid: 3 capsules 30 min prior to a meal


  • Keep out of reach of children.
  • If you are pregnant, nursing, taking any medication or have a medical condition, please consult your healthcare practitioner before use.
  • Do not take 5-HTP in conjunction with other medications for depression that increase serotonin, such as SSRIs or monoamine oxidase inhibitors (MAOIs). Combining the two can cause serotonin levels to become dangerously high.

I suffer from anxiety and mild depression, and have been looking for a natural alternative to help me on a day to day basis. With regular use I find that this really assists in elevating as well as stabilizing my mood. I take it in conjunction with sceletium and this really helps.

I suffer from Hypothyrodims. Which brings on severe depressive episodes. Along with PMSD I was living in a body that wanted to sleep and not wake up. I went from severe depression to finding myself smiling and giggle over small things. Feeling positive and lighter and actually viewing life differently. It has literally saved my life. As I could no longer function as a person in this world. I now feel way more eager to do things and awhile lot less agitated and just overall feeling "what's the point?". Thank you. I never recommend natural pills etc. This one truly helps.

I have suffered from anxiety most of my adult life and been on various meds. I made a decision to go off those meds about 3 months ago but was constantly feeling on edge. I have been taking Griffonia for about 10 days now and I am thrilled. Feeling a lot calmer and sleeping well. Have already ordered my 2nd bottle as I don't want to run out.

This is definately a necessity in the crazy uncertain times - takes the edge off without interfering with day to day functioning.

I have found that over a period of about a month I am more relaxed and upbeat,and it would help for depression too. It is an excellent make, no added ingredients, very pure.

I recently went through depression/anxiety brought on by extreme burnout. I chose to use this product because chemical meds can be so dangerous. I'm completely over the depression, which is a huge relief. This product is really effective for that.

I've been using this for about 2 weeks now and I do feel it is beginning to work somewhat for my anxiety. I think it takes a while though to kick in properly so will continue for a few months before making a final decision.

Great product. When I take it before I go to sleep, I sleep more easily.

My serotonin levels were too low in the morning and it was recommended that I try the 5-HTP. I believe this is a high quality product. Very happy with it.
