5-HTP, Hydroxytryptophan, is the precursor to serotonin, a mood and appetite regulating neurotransmitter produced within the body.
Nature's Way uses natural l-5-HTP extracted from Griffonia simplicifolia beans produced in easy-to-swallow, enteric-coated tablets to minimalize any potential gastric discomfort. It has been combined with Vitamin C and Vitamin B6, an important cofactor in the conversion to serotonin.
Use under the guidance of a healthcare practitioner.
Start with a low dose of 1 tablet (50 mg) taken daily with a meal. Increase the dose slowly (every 3-5 days) up to a maximum of 4 tablets taken daily (200 mg). Total daily intake should be divided into two or more doses, with no more than 2 tablets per dose.
