Description
Many people have already heard of serontonin and know how it affects mood and sleep, but what most people do not know is that it needs help from other biological factors to fulfill this role. 5-HTP is the intermediate metabolite between the amino acid L-tryptophan and serotonin, which is extracted from the seed of an African plant (Griffonia simplicifolia). 5-HTP readily crosses the blood-brain barrier and increases central nervous system (CNS) synthesis of serotonin. Serotonin can affect sleep, and many other important biological functions. This is a mid-range dosage of 5-HTP.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent Product, but Quick Warning One of the reviews mentions mixing this with St John's Wort, which is INCREDIBLY dangerous. Mixing anything that dramatically increases your serotonin levels can result in something called serotonin syndrome. Here's a breakdown from Mayo Clinic: "Serotonin is a chemical your body produces that's needed for your nerve cells and brain to function. But too much serotonin causes signs and symptoms that can range from mild (shivering and diarrhea) to severe (muscle rigidity, fever and seizures). Severe serotonin syndrome can cause death if not treated." Avoid mixing the following with each other: 5-HTP, Kanna (Sceletium), St John's Wort, SSRIs & SNRIs (antidepressants). There are some controlled substances that should also be on that list, but I don't want to risk this review getting taken down, so you can do your own research there.
