Serotonin‚ a neurotransmitter in the brain‚ has several purposes. It can support overall health by working to regulate brain and endocrine activity. It may play a role in promoting a good night's sleep‚ because it regulates your body's sleep/wake cycles.

Normally‚ your brain's production of serotonin rises when you are exposed to darkness (usually at night) and drops when you are exposed to light (typically during the day); the problem comes when your schedule or habits interfere with this process. Modern technology like TVs‚ computers‚ smartphones‚ and tablets emit a glow that can decrease the amount of sleep you get‚ as well as its restorative quality. Traveling across time zones may lead to jet lag‚ which can also make it harder to go to bed. Night shift workers might also struggle with serotonin production.

In addition‚ serotonin may also help maintain emotional well-being. An imbalance in levels of this neurotransmitter may negatively impact your mood.

5-hydroxytryptophan‚ also known as 5-HTP‚ is a substance that occurs halfway through the process of converting tryptophan into serotonin. As a result‚ you may benefit more quickly‚ since the body doesn't have to spend as much time processing the tryptophan in foods like turkey to make it usable.

A supplement like Pure Encapsulations' 5-HTP 50 mg may be more helpful than consuming foods that contain serotonin itself‚ as well. By providing its building blocks‚ 5-hydroxytryptophan might be better able to cross the blood-brain barrier.

One vegetable capsule provides 50 milligrams of 5-hydroxytryptophan naturally derived from the herb Griffonia simplicifolia. Take one to six capsules daily‚ in divided doses before meals. Each 180-capsule bottle should last from one to six months.

Pure Encapsulations seeks to formulate and manufacture high-quality‚ hypoallergenic dietary supplements. Quality control during the formulation and manufacturing process is paramount. All Pure Encapsulations products are made with the most bioavailable ingredients possible.

      Not a great product for us

      This 5-HTP (5-Hydroxytryptophan) by Pure Encapsulations was taken by my son with the recommendation coming from his doctor. My son did not have any success with pharmaceutical drugs to help with his anxiety and OCD. This did exactly what the pharmaceutical drugs had done to him. He went completely manic. If using this, I would use with caution as it effected my sons chemicals in the brain.

      Pros

      Cons

      Didn't work for us

      I have only been taking 5-HTP (5-Hydroxytryptophan) 50 mg by Pure Encapsulations for about 2 weeks at bedtime. It does seem to help me sleep through the night better, and to fall asleep more quickly when I wake up. But too soon to really tell. It is possible it is helping promote a slightly more calm and optimistic outlook or response to life circumstances, but again, too soon to correlate for sure. It could also be making me feel a tad more drowsy, which may be an effect of taking it in combination of other things. Seems a potent supplement.

      Pros

      The gentle aid with sleep

      Cons

      Possible drowsiness. Still too soon to tell.
      I would recommend this item to a friend.

      Taking 5-HTP (5-Hydroxytryptophan) 50 mg by Pure Encapsulations really helped me to be able to sleep well after weeks of not sleeping at all. Great natural anti depressant.

      Pros

      Cons

      It's expensive but worth it.
      I would recommend this item to a friend.

      On the advice of our pediatric neurologist, I started my daughter on 50 mg of 5-HTP by Pure Encapsulations. He felt it would help with social anxiety and it did! For the first time ever, I heard her ask another girl to play with her. From then on her social development really took off!

      5HTP was recommended for my daughter to help with sleep while she was going through some rough yeast die-off. She was taking it for about a month and 5HTP ended up making her pretty lethargic all day less active didnt want to participate in activities that she normally did. Weve since stopped the supplement and shes back to her old self and she no longer has sleep issues. Her doctor advised that this happens for some people so while 5HTP works well for many it didnt work for my daughter.

      I have a long history of sleep problems. I used to wake up every 2 hrs. 5-HTP solved that problem. I love this brand but their prices for 5-HTP increased substantially 18-24 months ago. As a result I have tried other brands. Most seem to work just as well. Would rate 5-HTP a 5 except for high price.
