5-HTP is short for 5-hydroxytryptophan. It is produced in the body from a small protein building block called tryptophan. 5-HTP helps the body to make the important “feel good” brain chemical called serotonin and the vital “sleep” hormone, melatonin. Supplementation with 5-HTP can help boost these important brain chemicals which in turn promote a healthy mood, better sleep and a reduction in the sensation of pain. Those with fibromyalgia may find some relief from their symptoms. As well, 5-HTP can be used to help both prevent migraine headaches and reduce their severity once they occur. Orange Natural’s 5-HTP is naturally derived from the African plant griffonia simplicifolia and is enhanced with vitamin B6 and magnesium which are important co-factors to help the body convert and utilize 5-HTP. Recommended Use: Helps to promote healthy mood balance, relieve symptoms of fibromyalgia and reduce the severity and duration of migraine headaches when taken as a prophylactic. Can be taken as a sleep aid.
