Doctor's Best Best 5-HTP 100 mg. - 180 Vegetarian Capsules

Doctor's Best Best 5-HTP is a naturally occurring metabolite of the amino acid tryptophan. 5-HTP is converted in the brain to serotonin, a neurotransmitter substance found at the junctions (synapses) between neurons. 5-HTP helps maintain mental and emotional well-being and promotes healthy sleep. Best 5-HTP is extracted from the seeds of the Griffonia simplicifolia plant.

  • Promotes Healthy Sleep.
  • Promotes Calm and Relaxation.
  • Powerful Brain Antioxidant.
  • This product contains no: milk, egg, wheat, gluten, corn, soy, sugar, sweeteners, starch, salt, or preservatives.

The Benefits of 5-HTP
5-HTP functions as the precursor for serotonin, a monoamine neurotransmitter found in the central nervous system (CNS) and some cells of the digestive tract. In the body, 5-HTP is formed by the addition of a hydroxyl group (–OH) to tryptophan, a reaction catalyzed by the enzyme tryptophan hydroxylase. This enzyme can be hindered by stress and conditions such as vitamin B6 deficiency, which is one reason B6 is included in this formula. Additionally, pyridoxal phosphate (vitamin B6) is necessary for 5-HTP to be converted to serotonin. Vitamin C participates in the conversion of tryptophan to 5-HTP and of tyrosine to norepinephrine, another important neurotransmitter. Synthesis of serotonin in the brain requires an adequate supply of either tryptophan or 5-HTP as precursors in the CNS. The supply of tryptophan available for conversion to 5-HTP depends on a number of factors, including the nutritional status of the individual and the competition between tryptophan and other amino acids for transport across the blood-brain barrier. Whereas tryptophan may be sidetracked into the production of niacin or protein, 5-HTP readily crosses the blood-brain barrier and becomes available for serotonin synthesis. Therefore, supplementation with 5-HTP is a more direct route to serotonin production. In contrast to tryptophan, orally consumed 5-HTP is readily absorbed by the mucosal cells of the gastrointestinal tract, with up to 70% then appearing in the bloodstream. The implications of possibly altering serotonin in this manner are significant: serotonergic neurons (nerve cells stimulated by serotonin) regulate sleep, appetite, nociception (the perception of pain), and aggressive behavior.

By Jens (Mandan , ND )

My review is ONLY my personal experience and is NOT to be understood as an approved alternative to anti-depressants/mood stabilizers!!! I have been using this product in combination with another to replace the massive amounts of pharmaceuticals I had been taking. I was on a number of anti-depressants/mood stabilizers in various combinations and max doses for over 16 years. I simply couldn't tolerate the side effects and potential health risks any longer. It was a long and difficult process, and I had severe withdrawal symptoms, but eventually I made it through it. Although, this supplement has been working well for me as an alternative treatment, it is not quite as effective as pharmaceutical therapy. Hence I had to increase the frequency of my mental health counseling sessions.

I RECOMMEND THIS PRODUCT!
