- Product Details
Jarrow Formulas 5-HTP is a precursor to serotonin and supports serotonin synthesis. Serotonin is an important substance for normal nerve and brain function. It appears to play significant roles in sleep, emotional moods, pain control, inflammation, intestinal peristalsis, and other body functions.
Where is it found - 5-HTP is not present in significant amounts in a typical diet. The human body manufactures 5-HTP from L-tryptophan, a natural amino acid found in most dietary proteins. However, eating food that contains L-tryptophan does not significantly increase 5-HTP levels. Supplemental 5-HTP is naturally derived from the seeds of Griffonia simplicifolia, a West African medicinal plant.
Who is likely to be deficient - Disruptions in emotional well-being, including depression and anxiety, have been linked to serotonin imbalances in the brain. People with fibromyalgia often have low serotonin levels in their blood. Supplements of 5-HTP may increase serotonin synthesis in these cases. The cause of migraine headaches is related to abnormal serotonin function in blood vessels, and 5-HTP may help correct this abnormality. Insomnia has been associated with tryptophan deficiency in the tissues of the brain; therefore, 5-HTP may provide a remedy for this condition.
How much is usually taken - In a controlled trial, 5-HTP (300 mg per day) was shown to be effective in reducing many symptoms of fibromyalgia, including pain, morning stiffness, sleep disturbances, and anxiety.
Jarrow Formulas' goal is to promote optimal health with high quality, effective, affordable and "cutting edge" formulations, which are based on sound scientific research data.
