Your brain produces and releases chemicals called neurotransmitters on a regular basis. These neurotransmitters are the messengers that carry signals between the neurons (cells) in your brain. When your mood‚ appetite‚ or sleep quality changes‚ a neurotransmitter called serotonin is usually involved.
Serotonin helps regulate your sleep/wake cycles. Normal levels of it in your brain also keep you feeling happy and lessen unhealthy food cravings. In order to bring your serotonin levels back up if they’re too low‚ some supplements are available to support serotonin production.
Protocol for Life Balance’s 5-HTP 200 mg (High Potency) gives you a convenient way to boost your serotonin levels. The main ingredient in this supplement is 5-HTP‚ or 5-hydroxytryptophan‚ which your brain needs in order to produce this neurotransmitter. Having a healthy supply of 5-HTP encourages your brain ramp up production‚ which can improve your mood‚ help you sleep better‚ and give you a healthy appetite.

One bottle of 5-HTP 200 mg High Potency by Protocol for Life Balance contains vegetarian capsules‚ which should last between 15 days and two months‚ depending on your dosage. Take one to four tablets daily in divided doses on an empty stomach‚ unless otherwise directed by your doctor.
