Quick Overview

    Product Description

    What Is It?
    5-Hydroxytryptophan (5-HTP) is an intermediate in the natural synthesis of the essential amino acid, tryptophan, to serotonin. Clinical studies suggest that 5-HTP supports healthy serotonin levels. In the body, 5-HTP converts to serotonin with the enzymatic removal of a carboxyl group (COOH). Serotonin is an important neurotransmitter involved in the regulation of endocrine and brain activity responsible for emotion, appetite and sleep/wake cycles.*

    Uses For 5-HTP

    Emotional Well-Being: Two open trials and a double blind comparative investigation indicate that 5-HTP provides promising support for emotional well-being. Additional studies indicate similar potential for support.*

    Appetite And Weight Management Support: 5-HTP has been shown to help moderate appetite and food cravings in study participants.*

    Cranial Vessel Comfort: In several trials, including one that involved over 100 subjects, 5-HTP has demonstrated the ability to promote healthy cranial vessel comfort and function.*

    What Is The Source?
    5-HTP is derived from the Griffonia simplicifolia plant. Hypo-allergenic plant fiber is derived from pine cellulose.

    Pure Encapsulations recommends 50-300 mg per day, in divided doses, before meals.

    Are There Any Potential Side Effects Or Precautions?
    Not to be taken by pregnant or lactating women. 5-HTP may cause gastrointestinal upset in sensitive individuals.

    Are There Any Potential Drug Interactions?
    Do not use concurrently with SSRI medications or MAO inhibitors.

    The most helpful favorable review

    I have had trouble sleeping and won't take pharmaceuticals or synthetic meds of any kind. This has been such a help for those nights when I can't get to sleep or wake up in the middle of the night and can't get back to sleep. I am finding that it is helping me relearn to sleep through the night.
