5-HTP 100mg 90c by Protocol

5-HTP 100mg 90c by Protocol is an intermediate metabolite between the amino acid L-tryptophan and serotonin; 5-HTP is serotonin’s immediate intracellular precursor. Serotonin is associated with positive mood and provides a substrate for the production of melatonin. 5-HTP is extracted from the bean of the African plant Griffonia simplicifolia, a natural vegetable source. L-Tyrosine is the amino acid precursor of the neurotransmitters dopamine and norepinephrine, both of which are important for the maintenance of a balanced mood. The combination of 5-HTP and L-Tyrosine, therefore, work together to beneficially support healthy brain neurochemistry. 5-HTP, the intermediate metabolite between the amino acid L-trytophan and serotonin, is extracted from the bean of an African plant (Griffonia simplicifolia). 5-HTP, also known as 5-hydroxytryptophan, is an amino acid that is the direct precursor for serotonin, a brain neurotransmitter. The production of serotonin starts with tryptophan, which is converted into 5-HTP, and then into serotonin. Serotonin plays an important role in the regulation of appetite and mood and is also necessary for the production of melatonin. Melatonin is the main hormone responsible for the management of sleep. 5-HTP is extracted from the bean of the African plant Griffonia simplicifolia, a natural vegetable source. However, 5-HTP is not found in large amounts in the diet, and eating foods that contain tryptophan appears not to significantly increase 5-HTP levels. This formulation also contains L-Tyrosine, an amino acid precursor of the neurotransmitters dopamine and norepinephrine, both of which are important for the maintenance of a balanced mood. The combination of 5-HTP and L-Tyrosine therefore can work synergistically to beneficially support healthy brain and neurochemistry. L-Tyrosine is generally safe taken in low doses. However, overstimulation, restlessness, anxiety, insomnia, heart palpitations or arrhythmia are side effects that occur from higher doses or in sensitive individuals in as low a dose as 200 mg. L-Tyrosine may cause a severe increase in blood pressure in people taking MAOIs. There is some concern that L-Tyrosine might have additive effects with thyroid hormone medications. L-Tyrosine is a precursor to thyroid hormone and might boost levels. Interactions with L-dopa have been suggested. These products are intended for the following protocols: Sleep/Mood Support, Weight Management.
