AMAZING FORMULAS 5 HTP
A single veggie capsule of Amazing Formulas 5-HTP Dietary Supplement provides 100 mg of L-5-hydroxytryptophan or 5-HTP, making it easy to distribute your dosage through the day to reach the correct recommended dosage.
5-HTP has been clinically shown to provide a number of benefits for health and well-being. It plays a role in appetite control, sleep cycle regulation, sexual health and emotional balance.*
WHAT IS 5-HTP (L-5-hydroxytryptophan) & HOW DOES IT WORK?
L-5-hydroxytryptophan or 5-HTP is an amino acid that is naturally produced by the human body and also found in the seeds of the griffonia simplicifolia plant.
To make our 5 HTP supplement we only use 5-HTP derived from griffonia simplicifolia, which is a natural source, not a synthetic form of the substance. Research indicates that the human body is better able to absorb and utilize 5-HTP derived from natural source.
In the body 5-HTP is produced from tryptophan and then is converted into serotonin. Serotonin is a neurotransmitter, a chemical that sends signals back and forth between cells in the brain. Taking a 5-HTP supplement supports serotonin production and provides a number of potential benefits for physical health and emotional well-being.*
MOOD SUPPORT AND STRESS RELIEF*
5-HTP is converted to Serotonin in the human body. Serotonin is often called "the feel good brain chemical" due to its important role in regulating mood. Studies indicate that low levels of serotonin can lead to negative feelings of sadness and anxiety. By supporting serotonin production with 5-HTP, it's possible to encourage a proper mood balance. 5-HTP is often recommend for people dealing with stress and tension.*
A NATURAL SLEEP AID*
Wakefulness and sleep are a part of a cycle controlled by your brain, and serotonin plays a role in keeping that cycle regulated. The inability to fall asleep or stay asleep at night may be linked to low serotonin levels. Some studies indicate that taking a 5-HTP supplement may help people with low serotonin levels fall asleep more quickly and sleep more deeply during the night.*
APPETITE CONTROL FOR WEIGHT LOSS SUPPORT*
While hunger is a physiological response to having an empty stomach, appetite is psychological. Serotonin imbalances have been shown to contribute to an excessive appetite. A number of studies have found that 5-HTP helps to control appetite and allows people to feel satisfied eating a smaller number of calories. As a result, it is recommend as a part of an overall healthy weight management program that includes a healthy diet and exercise.*
