5-HTP 50 mg 60 Capsules from Source Naturals may affect your mood and promote emotional well-being‚ regulate appetite‚ control melatonin production‚ and the sleep cycle. L-5-Hydroxytryptophan (5-HTP) is an intermediate in the production of neurotransmitters‚ namely serotonin and melatonin from tryptophan. Neurotransmitters transport signals between the neurons in the nervous system.
The 5-HTP 50 mg 60 Capsules from Source Naturals obtains the 5-HTP component from the seeds of an African plant called Griffonia simplicifolia. It is a woody climbing shrub that is native to West and Central Africa.
Stress from work‚ personal life etc.‚ can cause restless and tired feelings in many adults. When the body experiences 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. Studies have shown that 5-HTP supplements‚ like the one from Source Naturals‚ may increase the availability of serotonin in the body. This may in turn aid in improving your mood‚ regulate your appetite‚ and help you maintain a healthy sleep cycle.

A must for me...
I have used it as a sleep aid for a number of years and have had no side effects. There has also been no sign of 5-HTP being habit forming in my experience. I have great confidence in the Source Naturals company for quality and price of their product.
√ I would recommend this item to a friend.
