5-HTP 100 mg Veg Capsules
  • Helps to relieve symptoms of fibromyalgia
  • Reduces the severity and duration of migraine headaches when taken as a prophylactic

  • Natural Source
5-HTP, the intermediate metabolite between the amino acid L-tryptophan and serotonin, is extracted from the seed of an African plant (Griffonia simplicifolia). 5-HTP readily crosses the blood-brain barrier and increases central nervous system (CNS) synthesis of serotonin. Serotonin can affect sleep, and many other important biological functions. This is a mid-range dosage of 5-HTP.
