- 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.
