5-HTP (100mg) Overview
5-HTP is an amino acid that is one conversion step away from the neurotransmitter serotonin. Serotonin has an enormous, but incompletely understood role to play in brain health, especially with respect to mood and appetite control. Since 5-HTP occurs naturally in the plant Griffonia simplicifolia, 5-HTP supplements are essentially extracts of this herb. 5-HTP is used to support a positive mood, better sleep and to reduce cravings for sweets and carbs. Natrol's 100 mg 5-HTP can be taken with a light meal; some users may get better results on an empty stomach.
