NOW Foods 5-HTP Veg Capsules
100 mg 60 Capsules
NOW Foods 5-HTP Veg Capsules is the intermediate metabolite between the amino acid L-tryptophan and serotonin. This 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.
