Ingredients & DescriptionOur bodies are able to convert Tryptophan into Serotonin with the assistance of the metabolite 5-HTP. Supplements of 5-Hydroxy L-Tryptophan have been shown to be more easily absorbed by the body than Tryptophan. Metabolic Response Modifiers have formulated an all-natural, vegetarian-friendly form of 5-HTP to help you maintain normal Serotonin levels.
Alright so now that we know what 5-HTP can do, what exactly is Serotonin? Serotonin is a vital neurotransmitter synthesized within our central nervous systems. It is this substance which helps regulate mood, appetite, sleeping patterns, aggression, behavior, and body temperature as well as sexuality. Low levels of Serotonin can contribute to feelings of depression, an unruly appetite and cravings for carbohydrate-saturated foods, and obsessive compulsive tendencies. Stabilizing Serotonin levels may help regulate mood and sleeping habits, in addition to controlling appetite and aggression.
