Source Naturals 5-HTP Description
- L-5 Hydroxytryptophan
- Supports Normal Sleep Cycles
5-HTP (l-5-Hydroxytryptophan) is an intermediate in the natural conversion of the essential amino acid, tryptophan, to serotonin. Clinical studies have shown that 5-HTP increases the amount and availability of serotonin produced by the body. Increased brain serotonin levels may produce positive effects of emotional well-being, appetite regulation, melatonin production and maintaining a healthy sleep cycle. Source Naturals 5-HTP is naturally derived from the seeds of the African plant Griffonia simplicifolia.

helps with menopause
This product has really helped me get through the up and down mood swings that come with menopause. I wouldn't be without it now. I feel so much better since taking it.
