  • 5-HTP Capsules from Jarrow Formulas® might have a positive effect on overall health by promoting emotional wellbeing‚ melatonin production‚ a healthy sleep cycle‚ and by regulating appetite.

    5-Hydroxytryptophan (5-HTP) is a chemical by-product of the protein building block L-tryptophan. The 5-HTP in the supplement from Jarrow Formulas® is derived from the seeds of Griffonia simplicifolia‚ an African plant. Its seeds are shown to contain up to 20% 5-HTP‚ by weight.

    5-HTP is known to help the brain and the central nervous system by increasing the production of the chemical called serotonin. Serotonin plays an important role in the body‚ especially in transporting signals between neurons. Serotonin may affect sleep‚ appetite‚ temperature‚ and pain sensation.

    Since it is also involved in the production of melatonin‚ the supplement may help improve the sleep cycle. Melatonin is a hormone produced by the pineal gland‚ a small gland in the brain that helps control sleep cycles.

    5-HTP Capsules from Jarrow Formulas® contains no wheat‚ gluten‚ soybeans‚ dairy‚ eggs‚ fish/shellfish‚ and peanuts/tree nuts.

    Helps w sleep

    I prefer other brands but the price of 5-HTP can be really high some times. Jarrow is a dependable brand. 5-HTP is one of those supplements I make sure I am never without!!!!!! 5-HTP keeps me from waking up in the middle of the night.

    I would recommend this item to a friend.
