5-HTP is short for 5-Hydroxytryptophan, and it is the immediate amino acid precursor to serotonin. Each 5-HTP capsule typically provides 50mg of 5-HTP and each bottle contains 60 capsules.
Nutri Advanced 5-HTP - 60 capsules
5-Hydroxytryptophan is the immediate amino acid precursor to serotonin meaning that 5-HTP is converted in the body into serotonin, an important neurotransmitter (chemical messenger)
5-HTP is derived from the amino acid tryptophan. Tryptophan is an essential amino acid found in food, principally in meat and dairy products, but only about 3% of oral tryptophan is converted into serotonin. 70% of oral 5-HTP, on the other hand, is converted into serotonin, but is not found in food. Instead, supplemental 5-HTP is naturally sourced from the seeds of the plant Griffonia simplicifolia.
Directions: 1-2 capsules daily, or as directed. Up to 600mg per day may be taken, although loose stools may result from higher doses. For children, the dosage of 5-HTP should be reduced from the adult dose to 20mg for every 10kg of body weight.
Ingredients: 5-HTP (5-Hydroxytryptophan), Silicon dioxide, Microcrystalline cellulose, Magnesium stearate
