Natrol 5-HTP Time Release is a natural dietary supplement supporting healthy and peaceful sleep. The product contains 5-HTP (5-hydroxytryptophan), an amino acid produced from the seeds of Griffonia simplicifolia, which is a direct precursor to serotonin. The supplement not only facilitates falling asleep and allows you to regenerate, but also helps to relieve the symptoms of depression and helps to control weight.

The product is recommended for people who have sleeping problems and experience bad mood, fatigue and irritability. The supplement is also recommended for people who have problems with appetite control, as it regulates appetite which increases the effectiveness of fighting against excessive kilograms.

5-HTP (5-hydroxytryptophan) is a natural precursor to serotonin. Serotonin is a neurotransmitter responsible for many important physiological functions. Above all, the compound affects the central nervous system (CNS). Serotonin, i.a., participates in maintaining the rhythm of sleep and wakefulness, is responsible for appetite regulation and also affects the stability of mood. 5-HTP is also a precursor to other neurotransmitters, such as dopamine, noradrenaline and adrenocorticotropic hormone (ACTH).

The consequences of serotonin deficiency
Serotonin deficiency in the body system contributes to the dysfunction in the central nervous system and the somatic nervous system. Disorders in the functioning of the central nervous system due to serotonin deficiency result in a significant reduction in mood, depression, propensity for aggression as well as eating disorders (lack of satiety feeling and increased craving for products of a high carbohydrates content). Somatic symptoms are i.a. irritable bowel syndrome (IBS), immune impairment and fibromyalgia. Moreover, mixed symptoms are also possible, which is the cause of frequent migraines.

Improvement of sleep quality
Sleep is a physiological state when the body system rests and regenerates. Inadequate sleeping hygiene and numerous health disorders lead to sleeping problems. Insomnia can be caused by insufficient levels of serotonin in the body system. Serotonin plays a role of a precursor to melatonin, the so called "sleep hormone" which affects the regulation of circadian rhythm of sleep and wakefulness. Serotonin deficiency is the cause of the reduced production of melatonin, which in turn can result in difficulties with falling asleep and sleep disruptions. 5-HTP, thanks to the ability to increase the level of melatonin, promotes the treatment of insomnia, improves the quality of sleep and facilitates falling asleep.

Antidepressant properties
In people suffering from depression we can observe reduced levels of serotonin. Serotonin deficiency negatively affects mood, so it could be the cause of not only depression but also an increased propensity for aggression. Serotonin allows us to feel euphoria and pleasure, but also increases pain threshold. 5-HTP, as a precursor to serotonin, helps to reduce depressive symptoms. Its action is comparable to the action of antidepressants, but unlike them, its use results in lower risk of side effects. 5-HTP also contributes to increasing the level of noradrenaline, whose deficiency may be associated with an increased risk of depression.

Appetite control
The serotonergic system plays an important role in appetite control. Decreased levels of serotonin in the hypothalamus lead to eating disorder (paroxysmal overeating, increased craving for high energy food). The mechanism of these disorders is associated mainly with the production of a neurohormone MCH, which is responsible for uncontrollable craving during serotonin deficiency. Moreover, scientific research has demonstrated that people sleeping less show a higher propensity for consuming high energy food, which is also related to the level of serotonin (serotonin deficiency = melatonin deficiency). Therefore, 5-HTP helps to deal with eating disorders and controls appetite.

To sum it all up, Natrol 5-HTP Time Release is a dietary supplement designed for anyone who suffers from insomnia and related problems concerning the deterioration of concentration and the ability to remember and in a decline in well-being, which greatly deteriorates the quality of life. The product, thanks to affecting the serotonergic system, positively influences the psychic sphere, helps to stabilize mood, reduces symptoms of depression, takes care of healthy and effective sleep and helps to combat eating disorders.

Tryptophan is one of the nine essential amino acids that require high protein food consumption, mono-preparation supplements tryptophan, an amino acid type and EAA-day nutrients and protein, which is essential in the process of protein synthesis. A derivative of 5-HTP in the decarboxylation is a precursor of serotonin ((tissue hormone having an effect on blood pressure and peristalsis), and the subsequent processes of melatonin (the hormone sleep). It is used for synthesis of nicotinic acid (niacin, known as vitamin PP). The due to the appetite suppressant is also used in certain weight loss formulations.
Even a small deficiency is dangerous for the course of many physiological processes, can cause the nervous system deterioration of mood, insomnia, and disturbances in the digestive process. Tryptophan deficiency in the long term leads to depression and neurological disorders.
Mono-preparation supplements of tryptophan are recommended as a means of reducing the stress and reducing the feeling of insomnia. A part of the nutritional supplements type of EAA and all-day aminoacids, it is a valuable component of protein supplements. Available in store
Doses recommended in supplementation: 500 - 2000 mg at bedtime, alternatively 500 - 1000 mg before meals.
