What is 5-HTP

5-HTP, or 5-Hydroxytryptophan, is derived from a plant that naturally increases the body's level of serotonin. Serotonin is the chemical messenger that plays a vital role in your mental health, mood, appetite and sleep. Studies have shown that 5-HTP supports calmness and relaxation by releasing more norepinephrine and dopamine, two important players in your mood and behaviour. Serotonin can also be converted into melatonin, which promotes a good night's sleep by increasing your REM cycle. In high dosages, 5-HTP can also suppress your appetite and help weight loss.

How and when to use 5-HTP

Take 1 capsule, preferably with a meal up to 2 times per day.
