    Source Naturals 5-HTP L-5 Hydroxytryptophan 100 mg. 30 Capsules

    Source Naturals 5-HTP (L-5-Hydroxytryptophan) is an intermediate in the natural conversion of the essential amino acid, tryptophan, to serotonin. Clinical studies have shown that Source Naturals 5-HTP increases the amount and availability of serotonin produced by the body. Increased brain serotonin levels from Source Naturals 5-HTP may produce positive effects on emotional well-being, appetite regulation, melatonin production and maintaining a healthy sleep cycle. Source Naturals 5-HTP is naturally derived from the seeds of the African plant Griffonia simplicifolia.

    Source Naturals 5-HTP How it Works
    5-HTP works because it supports your body’s balanced production of two important sleep regulating hormones, serotonin and melatonin. Serotonin is a neurotransmitter that helps regulate sleep, moods and appetite. But you need adequate serotonin levels to maintain this balance. 5-HTP is the serotonin precursor that is formed when tryptophan is converted into serotonin in your body. In clinical research, 5-HTP increased the amount and availability of serotonin produced by the body. It is able to cross the blood brain–barrier to increase both serotonin levels and serotonin production in your brain so you can regain a healthy balance when you are sleeping, feeling emotions, or eating.  Eventually, the serotonin in your body is converted into melatonin, the hormone that helps regulate healthy 24-hour sleep cycles known as circadian rhythms. Aging and various forms of physical or emotional stress can decrease your melatonin levels and disrupt your sleep cycle. Fortunately, that balance can be regained. When 5-HTP increases serotonin production, melatonin production is also increased, which can help you regain a healthy circadian rhythm.

    Three Tips for a Healthy Sleep Cycle

    • Have a small portion of a high carbohydrate snack (such as a few crackers or a banana) just before bedtime. That small amount of simple carbohydrates will trigger the release of extra serotonin to help you get to sleep.
    • Exercise. Regular exercise helps to promote healthy sleep cycles. But stop exercising a few hours before bedtime so your body has time to switch to a relaxed state for sleeping.
    • Supplement with 5-HTP, MELATONIN and our Bio-Aligned NIGHT REST formula.  These supplements can help you maintain healthy sleep cycles.

    5-HTP L-5 Hydroxytryptophan Addresses the Following Systems

    Sugar Regulation
    Our modern, “on the go” diet of processed, unnatural junk foods is overwhelming our bodies. Drastic increases in refined carbohydrates and sugars have led to health concerns unheard of even a generation ago. Increased blood glucose can lead to excess body weight and inefficient use of insulin... all are part of a spiraling, self-perpetuating cycle that is highly challenging to health. Through this cycle, increased blood sugar can lead to reactions like inflammation and glycation. Excess inflammation is an underlying imbalance that can affect cells and tissues and lead to concerns about our health. Glycation occurs when excess blood sugar binds with protein to produce Advanced Glycation End-products (AGEs), compounds that impact healthy cells. Many nutritional supplements can increase insulin efficiency and help maintain blood sugar in a normal range.

    Cognition / Nerves
    The human brain is the most complex structure known to man; much of how it functions and enables us to think, feel, contemplate abstract concepts, plan our future, and control many bodily processes is yet to be discovered. The function of the brain and nervous system is based on the unique structure of nerve cells (also called neurons), which take in and send out messages in the form of electrical impulses running through the phospholipids and minerals of the cell membranes. Although it is only two percent of our body weight, the brain consumes 20 percent of our energy. Neurotransmitters, brain chemicals that pass messages from one neuron to another, must be produced in adequate quantities to support mood, intelligence, concentration, assertiveness and calmness. This creates a tremendous need for nutritional fuel and energy. Brain functioning can be significantly improved by the right quantity and quality of nutrients.

    About Source Naturals

    Source Naturals was created in 1982 by C.E.O Ira Goldberg to support each individual’s potential to enjoy optimal health. At that time, the kind of nutritional formulations he envisioned – for the maintenance of well-being and the enhancement of life – simply didn’t exist. The idea of combining many nutrients, herbs and nutraceuticals in one formulation, though common today, was then a rarity. Source Naturals pioneered the concept with Wellness Formula, now the industry’s #1 immune support product. Source Naturals subsequently introduced numerous award-winning formulas, recognized for their excellence in independent surveys and nutritional analyses. In addition to Wellness, these award-winners include Life Force Multiple, Mega-Kid Multiple, Inflama-Rest, the Skin Eternal line, Higher Mind, Essential Enzymes, Male Response, and more.

    Source Naturals’ comprehensive Bio-Aligned Formulas help bring the power of alignment to your body. When formulating, Source Naturals evaluates the underlying causes of system imbalances, and then provides targeted nutrition to interdependent body systems. Source Naturals' line of more than 600 products also includes well-researched, single entity nutrients in their highest quality and most bioavailable forms. Source Naturals nutritional supplements are at the leading edge of today’s Wellness Revolution. This transformation in health consciousness also includes new perspectives in diet, lifestyle, emotional and spiritual development, and complementary health care. Source Naturals Strategy for Wellness is to provide education that empowers individuals to take responsibility for their health, rather than relying solely on outside medical authority. The result is people who are more productive and fulfilled, and a world that is stronger and healthier.
