BioGenesis 5 HTP, 120 vegetable capsules
5-Hydroxytryptophan (5-HTP) is the immediate precursor in the biosynthesis of the neurotransmitter 5-hydroxytryptamine (5-HT or serotonin). 5-HT is synthesized from the amino acid L-tryptophan.
Supplementation of 5-HTP promotes higher levels of serotonin, melatonin, endorphins, and catecholamines. 5-HTP supports the sleep cycle, pain management, and enhance mood.
BioGenesis 5 HTP provides 50mg of 5-hydroxytryptophan per serving.
Carbidopa may increase 5-HTP transport across the blood brain barrier due to decreased peripheral 5-HTP metabolism.
Methyldopa inhibits conversion of 5-HTP to serotonin.
