5-HTP (5-Hydroxytryptophan) is a substance produced in the body after eating foods that contain the amino acid L-tryptophan. The body uses 5-HTP to produce serotonin, an important neurotransmitter required for healthy nerve and brain function. Since it is closely linked to mood and relaxation, normal levels of serotonin allow for balanced moods and healthy sleep patterns.
The transmission of signals through different regions of the brain is via chemical messengers called neurotransmitters, such as serotonin. But for many people, poor diet combined with the stress of everyday life has resulted in serotonin deficiencies. 5-HTP can help re-establish normal serotonin levels in the brain because it acts as a precursor to serotonin production in the body.
Nature's Harmony® 5-HTP (5-Hydroxytryptophan) is a naturally sourced extract from the seeds of the Griffonia simplicifolia plant. This important nutrient is used to help balance mood, well-being and sleep patterns.
