About Vitamins.co.nz Clinicians 5-HTP Mood Care 50mg
Clinicians 5-HTP Mood Care is formulated to support healthy mood. It contains a quality source of natural 5-Hydroxytryptophan, derived from the seed Griffonia simplicifolia. 5-HTP supports serotonin production for healthy mood.
5-HTP (5-hydroxytryptophan) is an amino acid that is the active intermediate metabolite between the amino acid L-Tryptophan and the important chemical within the brain serotonin. In the central nervous system, serotonin supports sleep, mood, appetite, temperature balance, sexual behaviour and pain sensation. Other cells outside the brain such as platelets within the blood make and use serotonin as well. The brain can only use serotonin that is produced in the brain as serotonin cannot pass through the blood-brain barrier.
Supplemental forms of 5-HTP have been shown to support serotonin levels and offer mood support, sleep support, and tension headache support. Natural 5-HTP is derived from the seed of the African plant Griffonia simplicifolia.
