5-HTP 50mg 60‘s is available by Pure Encapsulations.
(5-HTP) is an intermediate in the natural synthesis of the essential
amino acid, tryptophan, to serotonin. The enzyme tryptophan hydroxylase
adds a hydroxyl group (OH) to tryptophan, forming the 5-HTP
intermediate. In the body, it converts to serotonin with the removal of
a carboxyl group (COOH) by a second enzyme. Serotonin is an important
neurotransmitter involved in the regulation of endocrine and brain
activity responsible for emotion, appetite and sleep/wake cycles. In
clinical studies, administration of 5-HTP supported serotonin
production. The 5-HTP supplied in this supplement is derived from the
Griffonia simplicifolia plant.
