Designs For Health 5HTP Supreme 60 capsules 100 milligrams
5HTP Supreme provides serotonin support for those with low levels of serotonin.
What it is for:
- Supports emotional well-being
- Helps moderate appetite and food cravings
- Supports serotonin metabolism
- Promotes healthy mood levels
How it works
5-Hydroxytryptophan (5-HTP) is an intermediate in the natural synthesis of the essential amino acid, tryptophan, to serotonin. In clinical studies, administration of 5-HTP increased serotonin levels. The enzyme
tryptophan hydroxylase adds a hydroxyl group (OH) to tryptophan, forming the 5-HTP intermediate. In the body, it converts to serotonin with the removal of a carboxyl group (COOH) by a second enzyme.
Added by popular demand, we have now created a higher dose 5HTP product with 100 mg per capsule as well as increasing the Pyridoxal-5-Phosphate (activated B-6) to 20 mg per capsule. Our modern, stressful lives lower levels of the feel-good neurotransmitter serotonin. Serotonin depletion leads to food cravings, depression, and other mood disorders. The pharmaceutical industry has responded to the serotonin crisis by creating a wide array of medications which seek to restore serotonin metabolism. A better approach may be to replete serotonin naturally by using its precursor, 5-hydroxytryptophan (5HTP) . Naturally restoring serotonin levels may help promote healthy mood levels and may also reduce food cravings. Pyridoxal-5-Phosphate (P5P) , the activated form of vitamin B6, is included in this formula to support overall neurotransmitter metabolism.
