About L-5 HTP Amino Acid 50mg Vegan
The focus of much interest, 5HTP acts on the brain helping to elevate mood, promote sleep, aid weight loss, relieve headaches, anxiety, depression and panic attacks. Solaray's natural L-5HTP, made from Griffonia simplicifolia, is enteric coated and therefore not destroyed by stomach acid, so passing through the stomach and subsequently released and absorbed. Once converted, it influences everything from mood, to appetite to sleep. The molecules are small enough to penetrate through the blood brain barrier and once it reaches the brain it is converted into serotonin. Although it affects many parts of the body, serotonin's most important actions take place in the brain where it influences everything from mood to appetite to sleep.
L-5-hydroxyTryptophan (L-5HTP) is converted by the body to serotonin, which is a major neurotransmitter of the central nervous system. Solaray 5-HTP is guaranteed to contain 50 mg of L-5-HTP per capsule.
