5-HTP 100 mg NOW Foods
5-HTP 100 mg by NOW Foods is extracted from the bean of an African plant (Griffonia simplicifolia). In the nerve cells first tryptamine and then 5-hydroxytryptophan are formed from the essential amino acids tryptophan. This ultimately results in 5-hydroxytryptamine (5 HT) serotonin through hydrogen addition and carbon degradation.
A lack of serotonin can trigger depression, anxiety and aggressiveness. Serotonin also plays an important role in sleep patterns, appetite, memory and learning ability, pain control, inflammatory reactions and intestinal peristalsis.
Overweight, addictive behavior, stress, migraine attacks, and suicidal thoughts are often effects of low serotonin levels.
Serotonin affects the contraction of the arteries in the cardiovascular system and thus helps with blood pressure control. In the skeletal muscles, serotonin dilates the blood vessels, which increases blood circulation.
Benefits of 5-HTP 100 mg NOW Foods:
- Neurotransmitter support
- Supports positive mood

5-HTP (5 hydroxytryptophan) increases serotonin
5-HTP is an important component in the tryptophan conversion process and the biosynthesis of serotonin and melatonin. Tryptophan is first converted to 5-HTP in the body and then used to produce serotonin and melatonin.
An increase in serotonin levels has several effects on the body and can reduce stress and anxiety, as well as a certain level of happiness, a calm state of mind and general well-being. By reducing the body’s susceptibility to excessive excitement and anxiety, serotonin can help eliminate one of the main causes of insomnia. That alone would mean that 5-HTP could be useful as a dietary supplement for an improved ability to calm the mind and prepare for sleep at night.
