5-HTP supports serotonin levels in the brain. It is a natural metabolite of the essential amino acid tryptophan and functions as a precursor for serotonin.
5-HTP, derived from the seeds of the African plant Griffonia simplicifolia, is free of synthetic ingredients and has a high level of purity. It is the immediate precursor of serotonin and converts directly to serotonin in the brain. Vitamin B6 is necessary for 5-HTP to be converted to serotonin and Vitamin C also participates in the conversion of 5-HTP to serotonin. It may aid in lifting the mood and may also help one to feel more calm and relaxed in stressful situations.
