Enhance Well-Being, Sleep & Memory

5-HTP (5-hydroxytryptophan) is a neurotransmitter regulates the sleep cycle and initiates sleep. It is made in our bodies from tryptophan as a precursor to serotonin and melatonin production. Serotonin is a neurotransmitter that promotes mental well-being and is involved in sleep, appetite, learning and memory.

5-HTP is more consistent than tryptophan in promoting and maintaining sleep, even at lower doses, and it improves the quality of sleep by increasing REM and deep sleep (stages 3 and 4) without lengthening total sleep time. Studies show that it helps to decrease the time it takes to fall asleep and decrease the number of times sleepers awaken during the night. For best results, take near bedtime with some carbohydrates like fruit or juice and start with a low dose for 3 or 4 days and increase if needed.

5-HTP also increases endorphin levels and has a positive influence on mood by promoting a sense of well-being. It can be useful for obsessive-compulsive disorder and mild depression. Studies have shown that 5-HTP is as effective as SSRIs but with fewer and more mild side effects. It also acts as an appetite suppressant and may be helpful for people trying to lose weight.

The seed of the Griffonia simplicifolia plant is the source of supplemental 5-HTP.
