5-HTP (5-hydroxytryptophan) is a naturally occurring substance derived from Griffonia simplicifolia seed extract that is used for alleviating anxiety. 5-hydroxytryptophan (5-HTP) is an essential amino acid involved in several metabolic processes. 5-HTP contributes to amino acid and hormone (serotonin, melatonin) synthesis, and thus to maintaining physical and mental well-being. The added vitamin B6 and magnesium citrate in the formula support these processes.
- supports physical and mental well-being
- promotes sleep
- supports muscle and nervous system function
Melatonin is needed for regulating the sleep-wake cycle. Serotonin helps increase beta-endorphin levels and reduces arousal and aggression.
