L-Tryptophan is an essential amino acid that is converted into L-5-Hydroxytryptophan (5-HTP) in the body. 5-HTP is then converted into serotonin and melatonin. Normal serotonin levels have been associated with normal moods, appropriate appetite and weight maintenance, and proper sleep. ARG 5-HTP is derived from a plant source, and is carefully tested to ensure its purity and to guarantee the absence of contaminants.
WHY SUPPORT NEUROTRANSMITTERS WITH SUPPLEMENTS?
The dietary intake of neurotransmitter precursors has been subject to questions of efficacy, and the extra ingestion of plant derived promoters of serotonin provide a way of ensuring optimal availability of essential neurotransmitters.
Avoid obvious sources of pollution, toxins and fumes. Air your house. Consume whole, fresh foods, and minimise all forms of refined sugar and carbohydrates and processed foods. Drink plenty of filtered water.
