      50 mg 5-Hydroxytrptophan. Neuro-nutrient formula. Positive mood support formula. Vegetarian capsules. All natural.

      Studies suggest that 5-HTP (5-hydroxytryptophan) may help provide nutritive support for the body's level of serotonin, known as the calming neurotransmitter. Adequate levels of serotonin are thought to help keep the body calm. Vitamin B-6 is added as a co-factor to help provide nutritive support for healthy synthesis of serotonin in the brain.

      Natural Balance 5-HTP formula contains natural 5-HTP derived from the griffonia bean. 5-HTP (5-hydroxytryptophan) is converted by the body to serotonin, an important neurotransmitter of the central nervous system. Serotonin is involved in the body's modulation of both mood and appetite. Serotonin is also a precursor to melatonin, which regulates the body's day/night cycle and sleep rhythms.

      As a neurotransmitter, serotonin plays a key role in maintaining mental and emotional well-being, affecting behavior, appetite and sleep. Natural Balance 5-HTP formula is intended to provide nutritive support for a positive mood and healthy levels of serotonin in the body.

    Directions

      I take twice a day 30 min before meals. Haven't seen any weight loss but info I read said it could take several weeks before you start seeing results. But I am more relaxed and I have been sleeping great.

          Why did you choose this?
          Vitamin Shoppe Store
          taken for years, stopped because doctor advise, tried many other preventive treatment for migraine, none worked as well as this. I am starting to take again but lower: used to take up to 600/day, will take up to 300/day. My side effects: improved sleep and mood, less muscular pain (Fybromialgia). Will have to doctor check kidneys regularly as it might damage them.
