Solaray L-5-hydroxy Tryptophan (L-5HTP) helps maintain a balanced outlook, a relaxed approach to life and may help with sleep disturbances.
Solaray L-5-hydroxy Tryptophan ( L-5HTP) has one of the amino acids the body uses to make the serotonin, which is a major neurotransmitter of the central nervous system. Since the molecules are small enough to penetrate the blood-brain barrier, once they reach the brain, they are converted into serotonin. While serotonin affects many parts of the body, it has the most significant effects on the brain, where it affects everything from mood to appetite to sleep.
As a brain chemical, L-5HTP helps to elevate the mood, promote sleep, aid weight loss, and relieve headaches, anxiety, depression, and panic attacks.
