5-HTP (50mg) Overview

Although it's a technically an amino acid compound, 5-HTP is actually an herbal supplement, derived from the herb Griffonia simplicifolia. In the body, 5-HTP (5-hydroxytryptophan) gets converted to the neurotransmitter serotonin. Serotonin influences how we feel physically and mentally, but since serotonin can't be supplemented directly, people have used 5-HTP for help with a wide range of conditions related to low serotonin levels, primarily appetite regulation, poor mood, and poor sleep patterns. NOW Foods is a best-selling brand of 5-HTP which is available in 50 and 100 mg potencies.

5-HTP (50mg) Description from Now
5-HTP, the intermediate metabolite between the amino acid L-tryptophan and serotonin, is extracted from the bean of an African plant (Griffonia simplicifolia).

Sleep / Moods

Eventhough this is primarily marketed for sleep-assistance, a side benefit is mood-regulating. Ive taken this for several years and wont go without it. There was a time I needed anti-depressants regularly, however as I got healthier and could cope better, 5-HTP has become a pleasant maintainence supplement.
