Now's 5-HTP is amazing for helping with bosting seratonin levels in the body to help with sleep, mood and appetite regulation. 5-HTP is the intermediate metabolite between the amino acid L-tryptophan and serotonin and is extracted from the seed of an African plant (Griffonia simplicifolia). Commonly used to help treat insomnia and depression.
Past supper time our brain shoves stores of Seratonin (Neurotransmitter) up to the brain and kicks up natural seratonin production. When we hit peak levels we will begin to feel tired and when we close our eyes the lack of light entering into the eye, no longer reflects off of the pineal gland. This triggers the hypothalamus to convert our Seratonin stores into melatonin to keep us asleep. For best results turn off all sources of blue light 1 hour before bed (cell phones, tablets, TV's, computers etc.)
Directions:Take 1 capsule daily, preferably on an empty stomach at bedtime.
***Special Consideration: 5-HTP can be hard on the stomach for those with a sensitive stomach. For people using this for sleep that have a sensitive stomch try taking 1-2 capsules with supper.
