5-HTP 100mg 5-HTP 100mg

Jarrow Formulas 5-HTP is a dietary supplement which contains pure extract from the seeds of the Griffonia simplicifolia which comes from West Africa. The supplement contains 5-HTP. It is a direct precursor to serotonin, which is necessary for the metabolism of the body system and very important for the production of melatonin.

Griffonia simplicifolia is a healing plant which comes from Africa. Traditionally, the leaves and juice were used in the treatment of wounds and nephropathy, and as the enema and aphrodisiac.

Serotonin is an organic chemical compound, a biogenic amine, which is classified as a tryptamine. It is a growth hormone, an important neurotransmitter in the central nervous system. It regulates our mood, reduces stress levels, improves sleep and controls appetite.

5-hydroxytryptophan (5-HTP) is a chemical compound which naturally occurs in the human body system. We produce it from an amino acid which is called tryptophan. Once the chemical reaction has taken place, the brain, under the influence of produced 5-HTP, generates serotonin, which is known for its good impact on the mental well-being.

5-HTP is used to restore normal levels of serotonin in people with its deficiency which is caused by depression or chronic inflammation.

5-hydroxytryptophan easily crosses the blood-brain barrier, while serotonin is not able to do it. The enzyme which transforms 5-HTP is called decarboxylase of aromatic L-amino acids. It is present not only in the brain, but also in the digestive system. Thanks to that, 5-hydroxytryptophan will not be converted into serotonin until it reaches the brain.

Antidepressant agent
The clinical studies have demonstrated that 5-HTP is safe and in a natural way increases the serotonin levels in the brain. It has been also demonstrated that it is very effective in fighting problems linked with serotonin deficiency syndrome, which can occur while using synthetic medicines. It is a kind of an antidepressant agent.

Sleep
5-HTP provides the fastest, the most efficient and the most consistent general results in the treatment of insomnia. Sleep becomes calm and long. It is an effective alternative for solving sleeping problems, in comparison with hypnotic medicines which are often addictive. The clinical studies suggest that 5-HTP is also useful in the treatment of sleeping disorders other than insomnia.

5-HTP significantly improves the REM phase, while improving the deep sleep phase 3 and 4 without increasing total sleep time. 5-HTP achieves its aim by shortening the sleep time in the sleep stages 1 and 2, which, in a certain way, are the least important stages of the whole cycle. The higher the dose, the longer REM phase. Thanks to that we wake up rested and eager for action.

Weight loss
An interesting fact is that, according to scientists from the University of Maryland, a greater amount of 5-HTP in the body system makes us feel happy and satisfied and thus we do not snack or overeat.

Interesting facts
In Europe, 5-HTP has been used for decades as an approved agent in the treatment of depression, sleeping disorders, weight problems and other ailments. It gains more and more recognition also in the USA.

Summary
Bad mood, sleeping disorders and appetite control disorders are some of the symptoms of the disturbed serotonin management. Jarrow Formulas 5-HTP is the Griffonia Simplicifolia extract of highest quality, which contains up to 99% of 5-HTP, which is the precursor to serotonin. This is a dietary supplement especially recommended during periods of greater vulnerability for bad mood and depression.
