5-Hydroxytryptophan (5-HTP)

50mg 60-Tablets

£12.99

HealthAid's 5-Hydroxytryptophan (5-HTP) Tablets is an amino acid that is the intermediate step between tryptophan and the important brain chemical Serotonin. Serotonin is involved in mood, behaviour, appetite, and sleep and is found in many places in the body particularly the brain, gastrointestinal system, and blood cells.

There is a massive amount of evidence that suggests that low Serotonin levels are a common consequence of modern living. The lifestyle and dietary practices of many people living in this stress-filled era results in lowered levels of Serotonin within the brain. As a result, many people are overweight, crave sugar and other carbohydrates, experience bouts of depression, get frequent headaches, and have vague muscle aches and pain. All of these maladies are correctable by raising brain Serotonin levels.

Benefits of 5-HTP:

  • Appetite control
  • Balancing moods
  • Sleep disturbances
  • Relief of migraines
  • Enhanced nerve and brain function

Dosage: Adults and children over 16 years of age, one to two tablets of 5HTP to be taken daily, can be increased to four if required. Maximum of six tablets can be taken a day. Do not exceed recommended daily intake unless advised by a suitably qualified person.


Side Effects: Not suitable for individuals taking sleeping pills or other mood modifying drugs.
