Quick Overview

  • Natural Source Supports Positive Mood* Vegetarian Formula

Product Description

Now foods, 5-HTP 100mg 120 Vcaps is a derivative of the amino acid tryptophan, which gets converted to serotonin. Serotonin is a neurotransmitter which can be described as a hormone for the brain, specifically responsible for making you happy. Some theories suggest that if your serotonin levels are higher you are not going to eat much, hence its importance in suppressing appetite

What Does 5-HTP Do?

The body produces tryptophan naturally, which then converts to serotonin.

Serotonin is responsible for:

  • Suppressing hunger
  • Improving mood
  • Helping to build protein which is vital in curb weight gain

5-HTP supplements can access the brain from the blood stream which is something that cannot be done by serotonin. Chemicals have to pass the brain-blood barrier and serotonin cannot do that making it necessary to take a supplement like 5-HTP to increase serotonin levels in the brain.
