  • Have you heard of 5-Hydroxytryptophan? It's a substance that your body produces when you consume tryptophan‚ an essential amino acid. A 5-HTP supplement allows your body to benefit more quickly‚ because it provides the helpful compounds directly‚ without the need for the body to convert it into a useable form. There are no foods that contain 5-HTP; however‚ turkey‚ chicken‚ potatoes‚ milk‚ collard greens‚ potatoes‚ pumpkins‚ and sunflower seeds are among the dietary sources of tryptophan.

    5-HTP may be important due to its involvement in sleep patterns. It is converted into a neurotransmitter called serotonin‚ which works to regulate behaviors and moods. Serotonin is involved in the wake/sleep cycles that allow your body to get the good night's rest it needs in order to repair itself at night. In addition‚ serotonin's involvement in brain activity may promote emotional well-being and lessen anxiety‚ while possibly helping moderate appetite and food cravings; the latter may help you maintain an already healthy weight as part of a diet and exercise regimen. Finally‚ 5-HTP may support comfort in the cranial vessel by aiding healthy blood circulation in the brain.

    Pure Encapsulations' 5-HTP (5-Hydroxytryptophan) 100 mg gives you this needed ingredient. Each capsule provides 100 milligrams of 5-HTP‚ derived from an African herb called Griffonia simplicifolia. In some cases‚ it may also alleviate mild pain or stiffness while lessening fatigue.

    Take one to three vegetable capsules daily‚ in divided doses with meals. At the recommended dosage‚ one 60-capsule bottle of 5-HTP 100 mg by Pure Encapsulations should last from 20 days to two months.

    Pure Encapsulations seeks to formulate and manufacture high-quality‚ hypoallergenic dietary supplements. Quality control during the formulation and manufacturing process is paramount. All Pure Encapsulations products are made with the most bioavailable ingredients possible.

    Great for sleep; this brand high $$$

    I have a long history of sleep problems. I used to wake up every 2 hrs. 5-HTP solved that problem. I love this brand but their prices for 5-HTP increased substantially 18-24 months ago. As a result I have tried other brands. Most seem to work just as well. Would rate 5-HTP a 5 except for high price.

    I would recommend this item to a friend.
