Doctor’s Best 5-HTP (100 mg) is just what you need to promote a relaxed and calm mental and emotional state. Formulated using naturally-sourced 5-HTP extracted from the seeds of the Griffonia simplicolia plant, this important precursor molecule to our own natural neurotransmitter serotonin supports a beneficial impact on mood, sleep, carbohydrate cravings and discomfort associated with fatigue.
5-HTP (5-hydroxy L-tryptophan) is a precursor for the brain neurotransmitter serotonin, known as the feel-good brain chemical. Serotonin in turn is a precursor for the sleep neurotransmitter and hormone melatonin. Low levels of these neurotransmitters can result in mood, sleep, appetite and hormonal imbalances that can leave you feeling quite blue. Supporting a healthy balance of these neurotransmitters by supplementing with 5-HTP as a nutritional precursor helps support restful sleep, positive mood and a better regulated appetite.
L-Tryptophan is an essential amino acid found in protein foods that the body uses as a precursor to produce serotonin. However, this process only occurs naturally following enzymatic conversion with tryptophan hydroxylase which converts dietary tryptophan to 5-HTP. However, tryptophan can also be shunted down other biochemical pathways in the body. 5-HTP, in contrast, is already is a form able to easily cross the blood-brain-barrier for the production of serotonin in the central nervous system. In addition, unlike tryptophan which is in competition with other amino acids for absorption, 5-HTP is able to be absorbed easily and directly, with or without the presence of other amino acids.
Doctor’s Best creates vitamins and supplements using science-based techniques that combine natural ingredients using thoroughly researched and tested methods.
