What is 5-HTP?

The neurotransmitter, 5-hydroxy-tryptophan (5-HTP) is a compound created in the body which is used to regulate serotonin levels in brain and central nervous system. 5- HTP may help support and maintain a balanced and relaxed outlook on life. 5 HTP may also help support healthy weight management and healthy sleeping patterns.

Doctor`s Best 5-HTP is derived from the seeds of the Griffonia simplicifolia plant. Supplementing with Griffonia Seed may help support and maintain a balanced and relaxed outlook on life. It may also help support healthy weight management.

Taking 5-HTP in the evening prior to bedtime may help maintain and support the quality of your sleep patterns.

5-HTP appears to work as a free radical scavenger (antioxidant). This may help to support and maintain immune function and health in general.

A friend of mine gave me these the other week as they were left over in her cupboard, and I would say they are the best 5-HTP tablets that I have tried. I would recommend 5-HTP to anyone who needs a bit of a pick-me-up every now and then. I prefer to take 5-HTP patches now instead of tablets, but I would still recommend the Doctor''s Best tablets if tablets is what you prefer.

Question about Best 5-HTP - 60 x 100mg Capsules I know that St John's Wort is not recommended for women taking the contraceptive pill so I just wanted to ask the same question regarding 5HTP.
There are no known contraindications at this time, however, 5HTP is not as well researched as supplements such as St John's Wort so we would always advise caution.
