Pure grade 5-Hydroxytryptophan (5-HTP) to support normal sleep patterns and balanced mood
- 50mg 5-HTP per capsule to support normal sleep patterns and balanced mood.
- 5-HTP is derived from the amino acid tryptophan and converted in the body into serotonin, an important neurotransmitter for brain and nerve function.
- 5-HTP may also be converted in the body to melatonin, an important neurotransmitter that regulates the sleep-wake cycle.
- 70% of oral 5-HTP is converted into serotonin, compared with only about 3% oral tryptophan. However, unlike tryptophan, 5-HTP is not found in food and therefore requires supplementation.

Why Choose 5-HTP?
Our 5-HTP is an excellent choice for anyone wishing to support their mood or sleep cycle naturally. 5-HTP is the immediate amino acid precursor to serotonin and is derived from tryptophan. Tryptophan is an essential amino acid found in food, principally in meat and dairy products, but only about 3% of oral tryptophan is converted into serotonin. 70% of oral 5-HTP, on the other hand, is converted into serotonin, but is not found in food. Instead, our supplemental 5-HTP is naturally sourced from the seeds of the plant Griffonia simplicifolia.
What is 5-HTP?
5-Hydroxytryptophan (5-HTP) is naturally produced in your body from the amino acid tryptophan. Your body uses it to produce serotonin, a chemical messenger that sends signals between your nerve cells. Serotonin may also be converted in the body to melatonin, an important neurotransmitter that regulates the sleep-wake cycle. Low serotonin levels are associated with numerous health issues, in particular low mood, sleep disruption and difficulty maintaining healthy weight.
