A professional plant derived formula that promotes a healthy mood


  • Mood
  • Sleep
  • Health: cravings, weight

Feature Ingredients 

  • 5-Hydroxytryptophan (5-HTP) – is a precursor to serotonin
  • Serotonin promotes a positive mood, sleep, and helps to reduce cravings

Supplementation with 5-HTP encourages brain serotonin levels that can lead to positive effects on emotional well-being, appetite control, and wake/sleep cycles.

  • 5-Hydroxytryptophan (5-HTP) is an intermediate in the natural synthesis of the essential amino acid, tryptophan, to serotonin. Clinical studies suggest that 5-HTP supports healthy serotonin levels. In the body, 5-HTP converts to serotonin with the enzymatic removal of a carboxyl group (COOH). Serotonin is an important neurotransmitter involved in the regulation of endocrine and brain activity responsible for emotion, appetite and sleep/wake cycles.*
  • Emotional Well-Being: Two open trials and a double blind comparative investigation indicate that 5-HTP provides promising support for emotional well-being. Additional studies indicate similar potential for support.*
  • Appetite And Weight Management Support: 5-HTP has been shown to help moderate appetite and food cravings in study participants.*
  • Cranial Vessel Comfort: In several trials, including one that involved over 100 subjects, 5-HTP has demonstrated the ability to promote healthy cranial vessel comfort and function.*
  • 5-HTP is derived from the Griffonia simplicifolia plant. Hypo-allergenic plant fiber is derived from pine cellulose.
