Enhances brain serotonin

Enhances brain serotonin 5-Hydroxytryptophan (5-HTP) is an intermediate in the natural synthesis of the essential amino acid, tryptophan, to serotonin.
The enzyme tryptophan hydroxylase adds a hydroxyl group (OH) to tryptophan, forming the 5-HTP intermediate.
In the body, it converts to serotonin with the removal of a carboxyl group (COOH) by a second enzyme.
Serotonin is an important neurotransmitter involved in the regulation of endocrine and brain activity responsible for emotion, appetite and sleep/wake cycles.
In clinical studies, administration of 5-HTP supported serotonin production.
The 5-HTP supplied in this supplement is derived from the Griffonia simplicifolia plant. Supplementation with 5-HTP encourages brain serotonin levels that can lead to positive effects on emotional well-being, appetite control, and wake/sleep cycles.
