Doctor's Best 5-HTP 100mg 60 Capsules

5-HTP (5-hydroxy L-tryptophan) is a naturally occurring metabolite of the amino acid tryptophan. 
5-HTP is converted in the brain to serotonin, a neurotransmitter substance found at the junctions (synapses) between neurons. 
5-HTP helps maintain mental and emotional well-being and promotes healthy sleep. 
Best 5-HTP is extracted from the seeds of the Griffonia simplicifolia plant.

Synthesis of serotonin in the brain requires an adequate supply of either tryptophan or 5-HTP as precursors in the CNS. 
The supply of tryptophan available for conversion to 5-HTP depends on a number of factors, including the nutritional status of the individual and the competition between tryptophan and other amino acids for transport across the blood-brain barrier. 
Whereas tryptophan may be sidetracked into the production of niacin or protein, 5-HTP readily crosses the blood-brain barrier and becomes available for serotonin synthesis. 
Therefore, supplementation with 5-HTP is a more direct route to serotonin production.
Promotes satiety and supports healthy eating patterns
While serotonin is renown for its function in the brain, 95% of serotonin is actually found in the gastrointestinal tract. 
Accordingly, serotonin is deeply involved in gut physiology, including visceral perception and weight maintenance. 
In research where 5-HTP was administered at higher doses, it was discovered that these high doses of 5-HTP produced weight loss in subjects, mainly through its influence on satiety and an altered appetite for specific macronutrients.
May improve quality of sleep
Studies have shown that 5-HTP influences the quality of sleep by increasing REM (rapid eye movement) sleep. 
Administration of as little as 200 mg of 5-HTP in the evening prior to bedtime has been shown to increase the duration of REM sleep from 5 to 53% and decrease the amount of non-REM sleep

Oral administration of 5-HTP in clinical studies has resulted in gastrointestinal disturbances such as nausea, vomiting and diarrhea.
According to a review of several studies, these effects are tolerated by most patients and tend to lessen over time. 
Side effects are more marked with higher doses.
5 A recent review in a toxicology journal concludes that while undue speculation was raised years ago, “there is no evidence to implement 5-HTP intake as a cause of any illness.”
