5-HTP (5-Hydroxytryptophan) is made naturally in the body with the help of the essential amino acid l-tryptophan, but our bodies don’t naturally produce l-tryptophan, so we must obtain this important amino acid from our diet.
5-HTP helps the body to produce serotonin, a neurotransmitter that sends messages between nerve cells. Serotonin plays an important role in many essential functions and is used by the body to produce melatonin. Sometimes referred to as the ‘sleep hormone’ melatonin helps to regulate our sleep pattern and body clock, so optimum levels of 5-HTP in the body are essential to aid restful sleep and maintain a well-balanced mood.
Along with its ability to improve mood and sleep 5-HTP has also been shown to help us relax, which can lead to a reduction in anxiety and stress. As we age the body’s natural production of 5-HTP declines. Lack of tryptophan can influence cognitive function, which may interfere with normal memory, mental flexibility and learning ability. Lily & Loaf 5-HTP formula includes naturally sourced 5-HTP derived from Griffonia simplicifolia plant, Hop flowers extract and l-tryptophan along with vitamin B6, B12 and magnesium. Natural ingredients with no artificial preservatives. Free from gluten, wheat, lactose, soy and added sugar. Presented in Vegan Friendly vegetable capsules.
