These 5-HTP 100 mg 60 Capsules from Source Naturals may potentially have positive effects on your mood‚ appetite‚ melatonin production and sleep cycle.
L-5-Hydroxytryptophan (5-HTP) may play a role in the production of the neurotransmitters serotonin and melatonin from tryptophan. Neurotransmitters transport signals between neurons in the nervous system.
The 5-HTP 100 mg 60 Capsules from Source Naturals obtains 5-HTP from the seeds of an African plant called Griffonia simplicifolia. It is a woody climbing shrub that is native to West and Central Africa.
Select studies and research has shown the possibility that 5-HTP supplements‚ like this one from Source Naturals‚ may increase the availability of serotonin in the body‚ which in turn might aid in improving your mood‚ regulating your appetite‚ and helping you maintain a healthy sleep cycle.
Stress is a major source of insomnia in many adults. When the body goes through a feeling of overall well being‚ it may have positive effects on your sleep too. Proper sleep is essential to keep your body functioning properly‚ and is known to impact your weight too.
