Serotonin‚ also known as 5-hydroxytriptamine‚ is a neurotransmitter (chemical messenger) that is important to brain function. While 90 percent of your body’s serotonin is located in your gut—where it helps regulate intestinal movements—it originates in the cells that are located deep in your brain stem. It interacts with other neurotransmitters‚ which enables serotonin to affect a multitude of functions; these include mood‚ appetite‚ and sleep. If you have low serotonin levels‚ you may suffer from depression‚ inability to concentrate‚ and sleep problems. It is believed that stress and poor diet‚ both of which are common in today’s day and age‚ can negatively affect your serotonin levels.
Xymogen’s 5-HTP CR is a natural‚ chemical-free amino acid. It works to increase serotonin levels in your body by steadily releasing amounts of 5-HTP slowly overtime. This may help lift your mood‚ control your appetite‚ increase your focus and concentration‚ and regulate your sleep cycle. It’s recommended that you consult a medical professional before taking this supplement and that you don’t use it in conjunction with other supplements or medications containing L-tryptophan or 5-HTP.
While many people use herbal supplements because they contain a lower likelihood of harmful side effects‚ it’s not recommended that this product be taken in the place of prescribed medications.
The main ingredient in this supplement is griffonia simplicifolia‚ which is a source of 5-HTP.
At its recommended dosage of one tablet with a meal twice daily—a bottle of 5-HTP CR should last for approximately one month.
Xymogen® products provide pure dosages of the nutrients you need. Their supplements are available in forms far easier to swallow than the average tablet.
