Vitabase | Dietary Supplement

  • Provides hydroxytryptophan, which the body converts to serotonin.
  • Offers serotonin, which regulates sleep, mood, and even appetite.
  • Contains vitamins C and B6 to optimize effectiveness.

 

5-hydroxytryptophan (5-HTP) is an amino acid made in the body from tryptophan and converted to serotonin, an important brain chemical. Serotonin levels impact sleep, mood, anxiety, aggression, appetite, temperature, sexual behavior, and pain sensations.

In theory, boosting serotonin by increasing the intake of 5-HTP could have many positive health benefits. In fact, many studies have been conducted and show that 5-HTP might be helpful for many conditions including mild depression, insomnia, and anxiety. It may also help suppress the appetite. However, more research is necessary before specific health benefits can be determined.

In addition to 5-HTP, our formula includes vitamins C and B6. These vitamins are important for optimizing the effects of 5-HTP.

Suggested Use: As a dietary supplement, adults take one (1) capsule daily with meals, or as directed by a health care professional. Store in a cool, dry place and away from direct light. See caution statement below.
