Natural precursor to serotonin to be taken before bed
Enjoy an active lifestyle? Why not add 5-HTP to your pre-bed routine? 5-HTP (5-hydroxytryptophan) is made in the body from tryptophan and is a precursor to the production of serotonin; a natural neurotransmitter. Each capsule from Puritans Pride has 100mg of 5-HTP.
Compound the body makes from tryptophan
5-HTP is a compound that the body makes from the essential amino acid Tryptophan. Whilst Tryptophan is typically obtained from meat, fish and dairy, there are no dietary sources of 5-HTP. Supplemental 5-HTP is obtained from the seeds of the Griffonia simplicifolia shrub.
