5-HTP (5-Hydroxytryptophan)

5-Hydroxytryptophan or 5-HTP is a naturally occurring amino acid that may help to stabilise your mood and promote feelings of well-being and happiness.

5-HTP is a popular ingredient used in relaxation, sleep and mood-enhancing supplements and can also be used for appetite suppression to aid with weight loss.

We only use 100% pharmaceutical grade 5HTP in our 5HTP Capsules and Cognitone.

It is advised that 5-HTP should not be taken by people on SSRIs or other types of antidepressants.
