Regulating your body's main processes is not an easy task. There are several different ways of attempting it‚ short of changing your lifestyle by certain criteria. One way is be using a dietary supplement that provides chemical compounds that may have the ability to affect a change in your overall wellness. 5-HTP by Metabolic Maintenance is dietary supplement that includes a metabolite and chemical precursor to important neurotransmitters like melatonin and serotonin.
5-HTP is naturally produced in the body- it is a chemical compound that is made by the body from tryptophan and then converted into serotonin. It has possible influences on the brain's function‚ working on playing roles in mood and hunger‚ among other sensations. A 5-HTF supplement has the ability to access the brain from the body's bloodstream‚ unlike a serotonin supplement‚ which can not enter the blood-brain barrier as easily by itself. The formula itself is derived from the seeds of the African plant Griffonia simplicifolia. This supplement also provides a source of activated vitamin B-6‚ as active Pyridoxal 5' Phosphate (P-5-P)‚ which acts as a serotonin metabolism cofactor.
Each 120 capsule bottle of 5-HTP 50 mg by Metabolic Maintenance should last for approximately 4 months at the recommended dosage of 1 capsule a day as a dietary supplement‚ or as recommended by a healthcare professional. This supplement is best taken between meals or at bedtime.
