What is 5 HTP
This is a natural extract, which is extracted from the Griffonia Simplicifolia plant. 5 HTP is the direct precursor of Serotonin and Melatonin. Serotonin and Melatonin are neurotransmitters that mainly occur in the brain. These are important neurotransmitters, which are responsible for various functions of the central nervous system. Serotonin and Melatonin have an inhibitory function and a calming effect. It is often compared to L-Tryptophan, because of a similar effect. Tryptophan only has the annoying property that it is poorly absorbed by the body. This has a negative effect on the effectiveness.
Why 5 HTP
If there is a shortage of Serotonin in the brain, this will have a direct negative effect on the mood and various processes in the body and brain. 5 HTP stimulates the production of Serotonin and quickly replenishes a deficiency. A deficiency can be caused by various causes, such as stress, incorrect nutrition or the use of drugs. It is also widely used to support a good night’s sleep. A dose can be taken at any time of the day and is not only suitable for taking at bedtime. This depends on the purpose for which it is used.
