Now Foods 5-HTP is a dietary supplement containing 5-hydroxytryptophan isolated from Griffonia simplicifolia seeds. The preparation is free from ingredients of animal origin, it can be used by vegetarians and vegans.

5-HTP (5-hydroxytryptophan) is an amino acid compound derived from tryptophan. It easily overcomes the blood-brain barrier, it is mainly used for the production of serotonin, but it can also support the production of other important substances (including melatonin). 5-hydroxytryptophan is naturally produced in the human body, and when it comes to its external sources, a large amount of it is found in Griffonia simplicifolia seeds.

5-HTP supplementation promotes increasing of serotonin levels. Serotonin, commonly known as the ‘happiness hormone’, is one of the key neurotransmitters. It is mainly responsible for regulating the mood, which is why the most frequent effect of lowering its level is the deterioration of mental well-being, lack of vital energy and the willingness to take up daily activities. Similarly, an increase in its concentration usually correlates with a sensation of happiness and well-being.

5-HTP supports the fight against insomnia. As a precursor to serotonin, it guarantees that there will be enough of it in the body to produce melatonin - a key hormone conditioning the circadian rhythm. In addition, by acting antidepressant, it favours the suppression of racing thoughts and the achievement of mental peace, which for many people is necessary to fall asleep and not wake up at night.

5-HTP can accelerate the weight loss. The supplementation is especially recommended for people who tend to eat too much and can not control their appetite for carbohydrates. The aforementioned serotonin plays a major role here. In addition to stabilizing the mood, it is also responsible for regulating the appetite. Too low level of this neurotransmitter correlates with the excessive appetite, food cravings and the desire for unhealthy, mainly sweet, foods.

In conclusion, Now Foods 5-HTP is a supplement that can increase serotonin levels. The appropriate level of this neurotransmitter is crucial for keeping the good mood, proper circadian rhythm and regulation of appetite.
