Your body has a wide range of sensations that dictate how you are prone to feeling at any given time. Some are changeable through outside factors- external pain‚ temperature‚ and hunger are all sensations that can be satisfied via fixes in the outside world. Other factors remain less readily fixable at first glance. Your mood‚ sleep patterns‚ nervous feelings you may get- all of these are processes that‚ if let to not be at the optimum levels‚ can turn into real issues you must face. Fortunately‚ there are ways of helping the regulation processes of these sensations through the processes of serotonin and melatonin. 5-HTP‚ a dietary supplement available through Metabolic Maintenance‚ acts as an important precursor to these processes‚ and may be beneficial to your general wellness.
5-HTP is a natural amino acid chemical precursor. It acts as a metabolic intermediate to tryptophan‚ as well as precursor to biosynthesis of the neurotransmitters serotonin and melatonin from tryptophan. This 5-HTP formula is derived naturally from seeds of Griffonia simplicifolia‚ an African plant. It has been combined with vitamin B-6‚ which works as an important serotonin metabolism cofactor‚ and vitamin C for increased absorption.

Overall Rating for 5-HTP 100 mg - 120 Capsules
Very pleased with Metabolic Maintenance
I have been on this product about 6 weeks. My doctor increased my dosage from 150mg to 200mg and I decided to try this one because of the lack of fillers binders magnesium stearate etc. I am getting good results with mood and depression improving and will continue to use it in the future. Excellent product and company!
