5-HTP is derived from the essential amino acid L-tryptophan, which is found in several food types. After L-tryptophan is absorbed from food, it is converted to 5-HTP (5-hyrdoxytryptophan) and then to serotonin.
Serotonin is a neurotransmitter that plays a key role in supporting mood balance, sleep and concentration. Serotonin is often called the ‘happy molecule’ because of the role it plays in helping us to feel positive.
5-HTP Complex Plus is not just a standard 5-HTP supplement – it has a unique addition of vitamins, minerals and amino acids that are all associated with supporting the normal function of mood and mental well-being, plus black pepper extract to aid absorption.
