5-HTP+ (5-Hydroxytryptophan)
60 Veggie Capsules • 450 mg
This product is a unique combination of 5-HTP, vitamin B6, magnesium, and vervain, formulated for the support of the nervous system.

5-HTP (5-hydroxytryptophan) is used by the organism to make serotonin, an important agent for normal nerve and brain function. Serotonin seems to play significant roles in sleep, emotional moods, pain control, inflammation, essential peristalsis, and other physiological functions. 5-HTP is not typically present in significant amounts in a regular protein diet. The body manufactures 5-HTP from L-Tryptophan, a natural amino acid found in most dietary supplements. However, intake of food high in L-Tryptophan does not necessarily increases 5-HTP.

In Europe, 5-HTP has been used for many years as an approved agent for mood disorders such as depression, sleep problems, weight loss, and other health conditions. Many health professionals have seen improvement in mood, physical vitality, and energy levels.

Another ingredient in this product is vitamin B6, the master vitamin for processing amino acids. Amino acids are the building blocks of all proteins and some hormones. Vitamin B6 helps to make and take apart many amino acids and is also needed to make serotonin, melatonin, and dopamine.

The use of magnesium for mental health is promising. Research has demonstrated that magnesium can promote the recovery of mild depression, improve symptoms of premenstrual syndrome, and reduce hyperactivity in children with attention deficit-hyperactivity disorder (ADHD). Magnesium has so many different actions in the organism that the exact reason for its clinical effects are difficult to determine.

Due to its bitter taste, herbalists used vervain to promote better digestion. Vervain has also been used in Europe to promote mental health. Glycosides, such as verbenalin and aucubin may contribute to its activity.
