Active Ingredients: get happy with 5-HTP
When it comes to health benefits, the intriguingly named 5-HTP almost has too many to count. From anxiety and depression to weight control and migraines, it’s on hand to help support your everyday wellbeing.

Let’s take a closer look at this handy health booster and how exactly you can start getting more of it into your lifestyle.

What is 5-HTP?

This nutrient is actually an amino acid that our bodies naturally produce. The supplement version of 5-HTP is derived from the seed of a West African plant named Griffonia Simplifolia. Also known as 5 hydroxytrypothan, 5-HTP is said to top up your natural levels of serotonin. It's known for it's ability to restore feelings of happiness and wellbeing (not to mention helping you get a decent 40 winks).

What are the health benefits of 5-HTP?

As 5-HTP plays a major role in boosting your production of serotonin, it's a great tool for relieving issues brought about by a serotonin deficiency, like depression, anxiety and stress. It works by providing the building blocks for your body's natural release of serotonin, supporting a positive mood and a sense of calm. 5-HTP is also thought to be effective in relieving insomnia, especially when used in conjunction with GABA, helping you to fall asleep more easily and get some deep, restful sleep. 

What’s more, 5-HTP has been widely used to help with weight control thanks to its ability to not only curb your appetite, but also to burn fats.  

How can I get more 5-HTP into my diet?
