  • If you lead a hurried‚ stressful lifestyle‚ you may be putting your health at risk. A poor diet‚ lack of exercise‚ and insufficient rest can cause your brain to produce low levels of a chemical messenger known as serotonin. Serotonin is a neurotransmitter that regulates your mood‚ hunger‚ and ability to sleep soundly. When your brain doesn’t produce sufficient serotonin‚ you may experience anxiety‚ sadness‚ trouble sleeping‚ headaches‚ and generalized aches and pains.

    5-HTP‚ also known as 5-Hydroxytryptophan‚ is an amino acid that your body makes from the essential amino acid tryptophan. Essential amino acids cannot be produced by the body‚ so they have to be obtained from your diet. Not having enough tryptophan in your diet can make your body unable to create enough of the 5-HTP necessary for the production of serotonin. If you’ve been suffering from a bad mood‚ a loss of appetite‚ or otherwise unexplained pains and aches throughout your body)‚ it may be due to a serotonin deficiency. A natural supplement may be capable of boosting those levels and providing health benefits.

    Pure Encapsulations’ 5-HTP 50 mg can help increase the amount of serotonin present in your brain. These convenient vegetable capsules are able to help you feel better. The main ingredient is pure 5-Hydroxytryptophan (5-HTP)‚ which supports your emotional wellbeing‚ regulates your appetite‚ and controls your wake/sleep cycle.

    Each bottle of 5-HTP 50 mg by Pure Encapsulations contains 60 capsules‚ which is enough to last for up to two months‚ depending upon your dosage.

    Didnt work for my daughter

    5HTP was recommended for my daughter to help with sleep while she was going through some rough yeast die-off. She was taking it for about a month and 5HTP ended up making her pretty lethargic all day less active didnt want to participate in activities that she normally did. Weve since stopped the supplement and shes back to her old self and she no longer has sleep issues. Her doctor advised that this happens for some people so while 5HTP works well for many it didnt work for my daughter.

    Great product but 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.
