5-HTP (5-Hydroxy L-tryptophan) is a compound that the body naturally makes from L-Tryptophan. It is a precursor to the neurotransmitter Serotonin.
Peak Supps 5 HTP tablets contain 100mg per tablet. The 5 HTP is obtained from the seeds of the African plant Griffonia Simplicifolia.
5 HTP is suitable for anyone taking part in intense bouts of high intensity exercise.
Although 5-HTP may be beneficial to help relieve symptoms of depression, it should be assessed on an individual basis. 5-HTP supplementation shouldn’t be regarded a treatment for clinical depression. If you have any concerns regarding any health issues please visit your GP to discuss further.
Long term use isn’t suggested (more than 6 months) due to its ability to change the balance of certain chemicals within the nervous system (Epinephrine, Norepinephrine and Dopamine.)
