5-Hydroxytryptophan (5-HTP) is an amino acid that is a stepping stone between tryptophan and the brain chemical seratonin. Stress and other environmental factors naturally lower seratonin levels within the body, causing mood disorders, exhaustion, anxiety, and overeating.
5-HTP can naturally reverse these negative side effects by increasing seratonin levels and ensuring that seratonin is used by the body. This regulates mood, lowering the instances of depression while boosting energy levels. It may also help with sleeplessness and insomnia. Super 5-HTP from Action Labs also contains Valerian, a natural root that also aids in deep sleep. Also in Super 5-HTP is L-Theanine which may help to improve mood and relieve anxiety.
