Looking for 5-HTP Powder?
What is 5-HTP?
5-HTP is an amino acid which increases serotonin levels in the body. In the body, 5-HTP is produced from tryptophan. However, some prefer to supplement in direct form.
5-HTP increases mood and may also increase sleep quality depending on the individual and other factors.
Take 1 capsule (100 mg) of 5-HTP one to two times daily at most. 5-HTP has a half-life of only 90 to 120 minutes. If you are looking for a longer window of time for positive serotonin benefits, we recommend L-tryptophan.
