5-HTP (100mg) Overview
Jarrow 100 mg 5-HTP is unique supplement used by people in a few different ways, and can be a great help when other approaches haven't worked for these specific kinds of problems; mood support, sleep support and cravings for carbs and sweets. Specifically, you take 5-HTP to increase production of a brain chemical called serotonin, which can't be supplemented directly. 5-HTP is the immediate precursor to serotonin, easily and quickly converted by our bodies. In the brain, serotonin has powerful regulatory effects on sleep, appetite and mood. It's been theorized that certain health problems are related to low serotonin levels and indeed many people just feel and function better when serotonin levels or activity are enhanced (some anti-depressant drugs work by increasing serotonin activity through pharmacological means).
Jarrow 5-HTP is a an excellent choice of 5-HTP supplement for current users or those interested in trying 5-HTP for the first time.
