Integrative Therapeutics 5-HTP is a natural vegetarian product produced from the seeds of the Griffonia simplicifolia plant that supports serotonin production for normal sleep, a positive mood, and an overall sense of well-being. OVitaminPro is confident that Integrative Therapeutics 5-HTP will meet your serotonin support needs. Keep in mind that serotonin and dopamine are natural antagonists.
