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.

50 mg worked better than 100 mg
I purchased 100 mg by mistake and I don't think my body needs this much. 50mg worked for me when I was having a tough time staying asleep. I do not struggle with mood swings. A friend opened me up to it but I have stopped using it b/c I'm sleeping better on my own..
