5-HTP is a precursor for serotonin, an important brain neurotransmitter.* 5-HTP absorption is not significantly affected by the presence of other amino acids.
This extended release version of our popular 5-HTP products provides a higher dose of 5-HTP - 200 mg per tablet - designed to release slowly over a few hours. For a lower dose product or a faster release delivery method, consider Seeking Health 5-HTP Capsules or 5-HTP Lozenges.
Key Benefits and Actions:
Serotonin Precursor: : Serotonin levels in the brain are highly dependent on the availability of 5-HTP within the central nervous system. 5-HTP easily crosses the blood-brain barrier without the requirement of a transport carrier. Adequate serotonin levels also play a significant role in melatonin production.
