What is 5-HTP?
5-HTP (5-Hydroxy L-Tryptophan) is a compound that the body naturally makes from L-Tryptophan and is a precursor to the neurotransmitter Serotonin. 5-HTP cannot be found in traditional food therefore it is mainly obtained through supplementation. 5-HTP is sourced from the seeds of the African plant Griffonia Simplicifolia.
Typically used before bed, 5-HTP is suitable for anyone taking part in intense bouts of high intensity exercise or looking to increase their 5-HTP levels. Peak Supps 5-HTP Tablets provide 100mg of 5-HTP.
