L-5-HTP 100 mg 60 Caps
: In stock
Tryptophan is an essential amino acid required by the body to make the neurotransmitter serotonin. The body uses tryptophan to make 5-HTP, and then this gets converted into serotonin. Oftentimes this process is not efficient and does not produce adequate serotonin. Therefore, an increased intake of 5-HTP becomes important. Numerous scientific studies show 5-HTP is of benefit in individuals with mood disorders. Our 5-HTP is from the seeds of the Griffonia simplicifolia plant. 5-HTP has many advantages over L-tryptophan: besides being safer to produce and arguably more potent, it can cross the very selective blood-brain barrier more easily than L-tryptophan. Once it passes through the blood-brain barrier it is able to help increase levels of serotonin, a neurotransmitter, whose levels are positively associated with mood.
Our Standardized Griffonia Extract is made under strict European quality standards which are comparable to Over-The-Counter drug standards in the US. It provides optimal levels of naturally occurring L-5-hydroxyTryptophan. Our L-5-HTP is formulated with important nutrients to optimize its effectiveness. Vitamin C and B-6 aid the conversion of tryptophan to serotonin in the body.

L-5-HTP 100mg by Tailor Made Nutrition Benefits:
- 5-HTP is more efficient at crossing the blood-brain barrier, therefore it is a more effective way to support the synthesis of serotonin in the brain.†
- Serotonin is responsible for regulating appetite and mood, and serves as a precursor to melatonin – a hormone involved in regulating the sleep cycle.†
- Serotonin helps support a more balanced emotional state.†
- 5-HTP is a more efficient way to increase serotonin levels, as tryptophan must compete with other amino acids as part of protein in the diet for absorption. Some of the tryptophan is used to make the vitamin niacin, and may be taken up by cells other than brain cells as a source of amino acids.
- Studies show 5-HTP is safe and effective for supporting mood, healthy food intake, and a better outlook on life.†
Ingredients: Gelatin, water (capsules), rice powder, silica and magnesium stearate.
