Description

5-HTP Powder is a blend of three adaptogenic herbs – eleuthero, ashwaganda and suma – along with 5-HTP to help the body adjust to changes. It also contains vitamin B6 and zinc, which support the action of 5-HTP.

5-HTP (5-hydroxytryptophan) is a natural extract obtained from the seeds of the Griffonia plant, a shrub native to Ghana and the Ivory Coast.

B6 – is essential for the biosynthesis of serotonin and other neurotransmitters, as well as the overall health of the nervous system. Sufficient levels of B6 are also necessary to prevent 5-HTP from being converted in the liver. Conversion of 5-HTP outside the brain results in decreased serotonin synthesis.

Zinc – inhibits the premature conversion of 5-HTP into serotonin outside the brain, which is important since serotonin is unable to cross the blood-brain barrier. Adequate zinc levels are also important, as zinc deficiencies have been linked to behavioural and sleep disturbances and mental and physical stress.
