5-HTP (5-Hydroxytryptophan) by Bioclinic Naturals is a timed release formulation that provides healthy mood support. 5-HTP is an amino acid precursor to the brain chemical serotonin, a neurotransmitter that is essential for balancing mood, along with performing cognitive tasks such as learning and memory formation.
• Healthy mood support
• Support for occasional sleeplessness
• Naturally sourced from the seed of the African plant Griffonia simplicifolia
• 5-HTP readily crosses the blood-brain barrier to increase central nervous system synthesis of serotonin
• Timed-release formulation may minimize gastric discomfort and helps prevent the rapid spikes and drops associated with immediate-release 5-HTP
Lowered mood as well as other conditions have long been associated with low serotonin levels, making 5-HTP an attractive natural option to elevate mood and improve emotional health.
Timed-release caplets bypass the limitations of immediate-release formulations. This allows for a sustained increase in serotonin, avoiding spikes, fluctuations, and the rapid drops associated with missed or delayed dosing. Additionally, timed-release formulations may help minimize the gastric discomfort some individuals experience with 5-HTP.
