5HTP Mood Care contains a quality source of natural 5HTP derived from the seed of Griffonia simplicifolia. 5HTP supports the production of serotonin.
5-HTP (5-hydroxytryptophan) is an amino acid that is the active intermediate metabolite between the amino acid L-Tryptophan and the important brain chemical serotonin. In the central nervous system, serotonin supports sleep, mood, appetite, temperature balance, sexual behaviour and pain sensation. Other cells outside the brain such as blood platelets make and use serotonin as well. The brain can only use serotonin which is produced in the brain as serotonin cannot pass the blood-brain barrier. Low serotonin levels have been linked to a number of common health conditions. Supplemental forms of 5-HTP have been shown to support serotonin levels and offer mood support, sleep support, and tension headache support. Natural 5-HTP is derived from the seed of the African plant Griffonia simplicifolia. Clinicians 5-HTP Mood Care is a research-based formulation designed to support those with low serotonin levels.
