5-HTP 100 mg capsules, Essential amino acid L-tryptophan 60 pcs

5-HTP 100mg

Already converted form of the essential amino acid L-tryptophan

5-HTP is the abbreviation for 5-hydroxytryptophan. The amino acid L-tryptophan is converted into 5-HTP in the body and from there into serotonin and melatonin. 5-HTP is therefore the basic substance of both substances, thus a more direct route than L-tryptophan. 5-HTP is well absorbed, even when taken with meals, and easily passes the blood-brain barrier. 5-HTP does not suffer from competition with other amino acids. It does not require a (common) transport molecule like other amino acids (including L-tryptophan).

5-HTP is extracted from the seeds of the African black bean (Griffonia simplicifolia).

Recommended dosage:
1 to 2 capsules per day with food or before going to bed. Take with plenty of water.
