5-HTP 100mg 180c by Pure Encapsulations
5-Hydroxytryptophan (Five-HTP) is an intermediate in the natural synthesis of the essential amino acid, tryptophan, to serotonin. The enzyme tryptophan hydroxylase adds a hydroxyl group (OH) to tryptophan, forming the 5-HTP intermediate. In the body, it converts to serotonin with the removal of a carboxyl group (COOH) by a second enzyme. Serotonin is an important neurotransmitter involved in the regulation of endocrine and brain activity responsible for emotion, appetite and sleep/wake cycles. The 5-HTP supplied in these amino acid capsules is derived from the Griffonia simplicifolia plant.*
Pure Encapsulations suggests taking 1-3 5-HTP 100mg capsules daily, in divided doses, before meals or as directed by your healthcare professional.
