Pure Encapsulations 5-HTP (5-Hydroxytryptophan), 50mg, 180 Capsules
Pure Encapsulations 5-Hydroxytryptophan (5-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 this supplement is derived from the Griffonia simplicifolia plant.
1–6 capsules per day, in divided doses, before meals.
180 capsules, 50 mg each
