5-Hydroxytryptophan (5-HTP) is an intermediate in the natural synthesis of the amino acid, tryptophan, to serotonin. The enzyme tryptophan hydroxylase adds a hydroxyl group (OH) to tryptophan, forming the 5-HTP intermediate. In the body, it converts to serotonin with the removal of a carboxyl group (COOH) by a second enzyme. Serotonin is an important neurotransmitter involved in the regulation of endocrine and brain activity responsible for emotion, appetite and sleep/wake cycles. In clinical studies, administration of 5-HTP supported serotonin production. The 5-HTP supplied in this supplement is derived from the Griffonia simplicifolia plant.

Sleep Well or Chill Out My doctor had me on this to help keep me even-keeled heading into my middle 40s and peri-menopause. I combine Pure’s Cognitive Aminos, 5-HTTP, Rhodiola Rosea and Ashwagandha for a good night’s sleep. 1 capsule each prior to bed and before my Melatonin. Since taking I don’t need Xanax or Klonipin to get into a deep sleep. If particularly stressed, I take during the day.

I recommend the same thing I have been taking this for almost 6 months. I notice a lift in my mood. I was taking it during the day, my doctor said to switch to taking it at night because it can cause drowsiness which I was trying to avoid. I recommend the same thing. Great product.

I have used 5-HTP for years and I feel comfortable taking Pure Encapsulations products I have used 5-HTP for years and I feel comfortable taking Pure Encapsulations products. It works. I have used it for migraine headaches, fibromyalgia pain and to promote sleep. It is a lot cheaper than the medications my healthcare provider wants to prescribe me for those conditions and I find it works just as well if not better without the nasty side effects. I highly recommend this supplement.
