Pure Encapsulations 5-HTP 50mg
offers support for endocrine system, brain, emotions, appetite, and sleep/wake cycles. Periodically‚ your natural production of 5-HTP is insufficient. This is where a supplement can help. 5-HTP may be important due to its involvement in sleep patterns. It is converted into a neurotransmitter called serotonin‚ which works to regulate behaviors and moods. Serotonin is involved in the wake/sleep cycles that allow your body to get the good nights rest it needs in order to repair itself. In addition‚ serotonins involvement in brain activity may promote emotional well-being ‚ while possibly helping moderate appetite and food cravings. The latter may help you maintain an already healthy weight as part of a diet and exercise regimen. Finally‚ 5-HTP may support comfort in the cranial vessel by aiding healthy blood circulation in the brain. 5-Hydroxytryptophan is a substance that your body produces when you consume tryptophan‚ an essential amino acid. A 5-HTP supplement allows your body to benefit more quickly‚ because it provides the helpful compounds directly‚ without the need for the body to convert it into a useable form. Recommended use:
1 capsule, 1-4 times daily in divided doses before a meal or as directed by a healthcare professional.

Promotes brain serotonin*
5-Hydroxytryptophan (5-HTP) is an intermediate in the natural synthesis of the essential amino acid, tryptophan, to serotonin. The enzyme tryptophan hydroxylase adds a hydroxyl group (OH) to tryptophan, forming the 5-HTP intermediate. In the body, it converts to serotonin with the removal of a carboxyl group (COOH) by a second enzyme.
Serotonin is an important neurotransmitter involved in the regulation of endocrine and brain activity responsible for emotion, appetite and sleep/wake cycles. In clinical studies, administration of 5-HTP supported serotonin production. The 5-HTP supplied in this supplement is derived from the Griffonia simplicifolia plant.* Supplementation with 5-HTP encourages brain serotonin levels that can lead to positive effects on emotional well-being, appetite control, and wake/sleep cycles.*
