5 HTP Supplement
5-Hydroxytryptophan (5-HTP) is an amino acid that helps support and regulate your brain’s serotonin supply during the daytime hours, boosting your mood and offering stress support. Overnight, 5-HTP acts as the precursor to the brain’s natural melatonin production, supporting a restful night’s sleep. The daytime and nighttime activities of 5-HTP work together to improve your mood and restore mental energy. 5-HTP is sourced from the seeds of the Griffonia simplicifolia plant, naturally found in western Africa.†

The Science Behind 5-HTP
A study published in Neuropsychiatric Disease and Treatment found that 5-HTP supplementation produced significant relief for “therapy-resistant” patients; their serotonin levels increased significantly enhancing the mood of the participants involved. 
According to research published in The Alternative Medicine Review, 5-HTP has shown that its therapeutic use may significantly help with serotonin production. It can easily cross the blood-brain-barrier and increase serotonin production by the central nervous system. It is well absorbed orally with around 70% winding up in the bloodstream. This was found to be very beneficial for mood, relaxation and stress management. 
A Recent clinical study published in The American Journal of Pathology has shown 5-HTP to be beneficial for the digestive system and gut function. It was found that 5-HTP highly influences the development of microvilli in the gut villi epithelium. It was also reported that serotonin regulates phagocytosis, the removal of pathogens and harmful cell debris by macrophages, which are white blood cells that act as the clean-up crew of the cells. 5-HTP is also stored in platelets for use by the body, especially the gut and the brain along the gut-brain axis.
