5•HTP Synergy™ is a synergistic formula of 5-hydroxytryptophan and vitamin B6 for supporting overall neurotransmitter metabolism by providing precursors of serotonin. 5-HTP readily enters the blood-brain barrier; however, conversion into serotonin requires the cofactor vitamin B6, which is included in this formula. 5•HTP Synergy™ may be used during the day to support healthy mood or appetite, or at bedtime to support sleep.**
Recommended Use: As a dietary supplement, take one capsule per day, or as directed by your health care practitioner.
Our modern, stressful lives lower levels of the feel-good neurotransmitter serotonin. Serotonin depletion leads to food cravings, depression, and other mood disorders. The pharmaceutical industry has responded to the serotonin crisis by creating a wide array of medications that seek to restore serotonin metabolism. A better approach may be to replete serotonin naturally by using its precursor, 5-hydroxytryptophan (5-HTP). Naturally restoring serotonin levels may help promote healthy mood levels and may also reduce food cravings.
*Pyridoxal-5-Phosphate (P-5-P), the activated form of vitamin B6, is included in this formula to support overall neurotransmitter metabolism.
