As with any supplement, in order to achieve maximum benefits of a 5-HTP supplement it is important to start with a high-quality supplement.
Our unique formula begins with a pure and concentrated organic Griffonia simplicifolia extract at 98% (most on the market are 95% or less and NOT organic). We added organic sunflower lecithin oil to enhance absorption, and we include the quality form of B6 (p5p) which will give you better conversion to serotonin. All of this creates better absorption providing you with stronger effects from your supplement.
5-HTP converts directly into serotonin in your brain. Serotonin is your brains ‘happiness’ hormone and is key for mood support. Other important roles include better sleep, appetite, memory, learning, temperature regulation, sexual behavior, cardiovascular function, muscle contraction, and endocrine regulation. Another reason 5-HTP is so beneficial for sleep and mood is because once it is ingested, serotonin also gets converted into another important “master” chemical – melatonin. Melatonin is your body’s natural sleep hormone and it’s responsible for maintaining healthy sleeping patterns. Many people also use 5-HTP for weight loss because it helps reduce your appetite.
Serotonin production declines with age, and at any age its abundance can be compromised further by stress. Low levels of serotonin are most commonly manifested by depressed mood, anxiety, and insomnia. They can also lead to various other complaints and disorders, diminishing one’s quality of life. Dietary supplementation can help boost levels of 5 HTP and therefore serotonin and melatonin production, enabling you to live a better quality of life.
WHY OUR 5-HTP??…HERE’S WHY: ✔ Unlike most brands, ours is made with ALL ORGANIC ingredients – Griffonia Simplicifolia with the highest available potency standardized at 98% : ✔ We’ve added B6 [P5P] which is needed to help convert more of the 5HTP to serotonin: ✔ We’ve added ORGANIC Sunflower Lecithin for enhanced absorption and greater bioavailability: ✔ Our 5HTP is a 100mg dose (easy to swallow capsule), which allows you to adjust the amount needed throughout the day.
WHEN AND HOW TO TAKE 5HTP……..✔ FOR MOOD SUPPORT: Any time you’re feeling a little low. Mood is indirectly related to serotonin, norepinephrine & dopamine levels. 5HTP is converted into serotonin, which is your brains “happiness” hormone and helps to improve your mood. With B6 added there is more conversion of the 5-HTP into serotonin and therefore the effects are greater from our 5HTP supplement.
✔ FOR…..SLEEP AID: It’s a good idea to take 5HTP about an hour before going to sleep. Your brain converts 5HTP to both serotonin and melatonin. Melatonin is responsible for maintaining healthy sleeping patterns which is why 5HTP is ideal to use for sleep aid.
✔ FOR…..PROMOTING WEIGHT LOSS: Best to take in the morning 30 minutes before meals on empty stomach which helps it absorb faster. Studies have found that 5HTP helps to reduce your appetite and helps with weight loss. The effect may be related to the increase in serotonin which is known to cause a reduced desire for carbohydrates. So whether you are on a workout regime or just looking to cut back on a few pounds, a reliable 5-HTP supplement can help achieve your goal.
