It is an efficacious formula providing 50 mg of 5-hydroxytryptphan (5-HTP) per serving to support healthy mood and well-being. It is commonly extracted from the plant species Griffonia simplicifolia as well as being a primary metabolite of the amino acid L-tryptophan. Despite L-tryptophan known for being a natural sedative, 5-HTP doesn’t necessarily induce drowsiness, but rather works to support relaxation and calmness. However, 5-HTP (at higher doses) may be useful for supporting sleep quality since some of it will be converted to melatonin.
