5-Hydroxytryptophan (5-HTP) is an amino acid vital to the production of the neurotransmitter serotonin. Low serotonin is linked to many common conditions including depression, obesity, sleeplessness, migraines, and fibromyalgia.
Supplementing with 5-HTP provides natural support for emotional well-being, and caplets are enteric coated to minimize gastric discomfort and optimize absorption.
