NOW 5-HTP 100 mg (60 veg. capsules)



Many people have already heard of serontonin and know how it affects mood and sleep, but what most people do not know is that it needs help from other biological factors to fulfill this role. 5-HTP is the intermediate metabolite between the amino acid L-tryptophan and serotonin, which is extracted from the seed of an African plant (Griffonia simplicifolia). 5-HTP readily crosses the blood-brain barrier and increases central nervous system (CNS) synthesis of serotonin. Serotonin can affect sleep, and many other important biological functions. This is a mid-range dosage of 5-HTP.
