    5-HTP Capsules from Now® Foods is an intermediate metabolite that may support mood balance and provide restful sleep. Extracted from the bean of an African plant‚ Griffonia simplicifolia in this supplement from Now® Foods may increase the levels of serotonin in the body. Increased levels of serotonin may alleviate anxiety‚ help you fall asleep better and promote feelings of well being.

    Low levels of serotonin may promote anxiety and mood imbalance. Serotonin is made from Tryptophan 5-HTP‚ it produces serotonin faster than tryptophan itself. The natural source of serotonin‚ this supplement may be extremely beneficial in dealing with anxiety. Griffonia seed extracts may be metabolized in the liver‚ where 5-HTP enters the blood stream. It crosses the blood-brain barrier and enters the nervous system.

    Serotonin then binds to the receptors on your neurons and may produce a wide range of benefits to your mental state. Improve your mood and mental state when you use 5-HTP Capsules from Now® Foods.

    I use this for my minds as I order other 5htp dosages but sometimes when it varies its hard to change the amount with capsules as you cant cut them in half so Its good to have all different dosages. Hence Im taking 250 mg twice a day so I need the 50 mg ones and the 100mg. Its easier that way and very affordable.

    My Doctor recommended 5-HTP for anxiety. Worked well and I like the lower dose in the 50 mg one can vary the amount when needed. Good price.
