Our modern, stress filled 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 which seek to restore serotonin metabolism. A better approach is may be to replete serotonin naturally by using its precursor, 5-hydroxytryptophan (5HTP). Naturally restoring serotonin levels helps promote healthy mood levels and also reduce food cravings.

5-HTP Supreme™ is a synergistic formula of 5-hydroxytryptophan (100 mg) and vitamin B6 (20 mg) for supporting overall neurotransmitter metabolism by providing precursors of serotonin. 5HTP readily enters the blood brain barrier, however conversion into serotonin requires the cofactor vitamin B6, which is included in this formula. 5-HTP Supreme™ may be used during the day to support healthy mood or appetite or at bedtime to support sleep. This formula is ideal for weight loss during peri and menopausal years, mood elevation, sleep improvement and increase in colon motility providing constipation relief.
